Mixtape #89

Jerusalem In My Heart have always dazzled us with their powerful and entrancing compositions, exploring and merging traditional Arabic music with electronic influences. Founded over a decade ago by prodigious and adventurous musician, composer and producer-in-demand Radwan Ghazi Moumneh, they are currently a performative audio-visual duo with Charles-André Coderre creating live projections on 16mm film. Ahead of the forthcoming 11th edition of Le Guess Who?, for which they are one of the guest co-curators, we are thrilled and honoured to unveil this special mixtape lovingly assembled by Radwan. Serving as a window into their extraordinary curation, it features music from each of the unique artists they have invited to perform. Now it's time to listen.

Le Guess Who?’s Who 2017: Tune-Yards

There’s less than two weeks to go before Le Guess Who? takes over Utrecht. With over 150 artists set to perform, how do we make sense of such a monumental line-up? We made a list of the artists we’re most excited to see and asked them for their recommendations.

Tune-Yards

Performing Sunday 12th November at TivoliVredenburg

Tune-Yards always screams fun. The duo of Merrill Garbus and Nate Brenner hadn’t released an album in three years but we can rejoice, for they have a new record on the way. I can feel you creep into my private life is due out in January and they have already teased it with a sparkling single. Bringing their dance-inducing music to TivoliVredenburg on the last day of Le Guess Who?, the festival will undoubtedly close on an explosive high note. We’ve asked Nate what other bands he is looking forward to. Find out his recommendations below!
