NTS Radio has temporarily shut its stations worldwide amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the midst of the global outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) the station, which won the Outstanding Contribution at last year’s DJ Mag Best Of British Awards, has made the decision to temporarily close its studios in London, Manchester, Los Angeles and Shanghai until further notice.
Arca has shared that new productions will be broadcast via online radio station, NTS, later today (19th).
Entitled ARCA PRESENTS @@@@@ – DIVA EXPERIMENTAL FM, the show will air on the radio station at 6PM, with Arca announcing the news in a Twitter post alongside XL Recordings.
The Venezuelan producer's last release was her self-titled album, also via XL Recordings, in 2017, and you can tune in to hear the new material here.
London’s Anu is an infectious kind of personality. Her un-dogmatic DJing and illustrations reflect the world around her in all its diverse glory. On her regular radio shows at both the BBC’s Asian Network and NTS, Anu can rope together stretches of progressive house and UK funky with a Wings track, or rub a vintage Bollywood singer like Asha Bhosle up against Gucci Mane. Nothing’s off limits. Her illustrations similarly comprise scribbled meditations on the people and moods that surround her on the street and the TV; a multimedia diary of Anu’s rich day-to-day.
Huddled in a circle on the dark, smoke-filled dancefloor at Corsica Studios, the four MCs that make up Bala Bala Boyz spit over syncopated bass-heavy rhythms, passing a single microphone between the collective's members. Captivating crowds with their energy, and an effortless ability to flow as a family unit, it’s on these South London dancefloors — as well as DIY festivals like Kallida and Boiler Room's four-day London takeover last year — that Bala Bala Boyz come alive.
Eclair Fifi has tapped up Afrodeutsche for a four-track EP on new imprint, River Rapid.
The DJ and producer, who featured on Marie Davidson's remix package alongside Nina Kraviz in February this year, will release 'RR001' via River Rapid on 26th July.
Afrodeutsche provides a murky mix of electro, house and breaks on 'RR001', meticulously capturing the essence of heavy dancefloor heat and crediting afrobeat and jazz to the pace of the EP.
The Independent Music Cup is back for its fifth year later this month, with 32 teams from across the music industry gearing up to compete to raise money for War Child.
The football tournament, founded and run by Ninja Tune (who will naturally be fielding a team), will see representatives from the likes of Warp Records, NTS, Boiler Room and ourselves here at DJ Mag, amongst many others, battling it out on the pitch all day on Saturday, July 27th.
Last weekend saw Warp Records kickstart its 30th anniversary celebrations with a three-day takeover of broadcasts on NTS Radio, and amongst the highlights was a new mix from Flying Lotus.
