Music, Please! is a weekly radio show and sound project curated and performed by DJ Hush. The show has evolved out of Hush’s long history and experience as a DJ, promoter, Music PR and radio maker (having been on Subcity as a regular contributor for almost 10 years). And an out of intense love of music. It strives to be an exploration of musical possibilities, a meditation on themes of identity, politics, semiotics and queer culture, a dimension for the disruption of (some) norms, an introduction to unknown and amazing sounds and artists. Its also an on-going interrogation of what a “'mix' is, or of what a 'DJ' does, or how music might, at times, be differently formulated for listening outside of the club experience. Its always fun, honestly, though maybe that doesn’t sound too fun. The structure of the episodes is created each week through track/sound selection and manipulation along with dialogue fragments, special EFX and pitch variations, beat-mixing and track blending. Or not, it really depends.
14/09/2020 // Pandemic Jukebox Vol. 1
Who spent the last 6 months keyboard walking trough the endless rabbit holes of Discogs & Youtube? What are the musical fruits of isolation & seclusion we find in our long days indoors and inside our own heads??
Have these songs, excavated from the depths of massive memory banks helped sustained our sanity, our emotional balance??
YES // YES // YES
Music, Please! is ECSTATIC to return to the Subcity web-waves, with an edition of selections that are Ingenious and authentic, melodic and mesmerising, an international jukebox timezone that bursts with vocal hooks and nagging, catchy melodies.
This broadcast is the first volume drawn from the gems gleaned from a six months long trawl for unusual, obscure and ostentatious new sounds, un-mixed and loosely glued together with some dialogue & (slight) cultural critique of oh so coool 80’s/90’s MTV nostalgia. Just for LOLZ.
Imagine for a moment, a parallel pop universe where instead of Phil Collins, Madonna, Van Halen and a cavalcade of Hollywood-smile-white rock stars there was instead a global feast for the ears that criss-crossed artists from South Korea, Italy, Russia, Israel, Peru, France, USA, Brazil, Yugoslavia and Cuba.
Maybe its a foolish thought, but our thoughts & dreams, however small, can keep us together.
Welcome aboard once again friends.
