We are thrilled to unveil this special collaboration between Automat and Phonica!
Automat Radio is an independent online radio station that travels around the globe live streaming the best underground music. Their truck has already visited several EU countries and they will be finally disembarking in London in a couple weeks.
To celebrate their visit, we are organising a joint event on Thursday 14th with some of our favourite selectors:
Jan Schulte — Music needs little introduction. The Dusseldorf-based artist has earned a reputation both behind the decks and in the studio as one of the most refreshing breakthrough names of recent times, most notably under the Wolf Müller and Bufiman monikers.
In his heavily percussive, trance-inducing DJ-Sets the Salon Des Amateurs resident light-footedly jumps across genres and decades, expertly veering from African inspired krautrock to emotional voodoo-techno to forgotten tropical drum music. Releases on reputable labels such as Themes For Great Cities, International Feel, Versatile or Dekmantel back his credentials as a producer, often described as a lesson in German bongo funk.
John Gómez is another enthusiast of tropical-tinged music. His recent ‘Outro Tempo’ compilation on the highly respected Amsterdam imprint Music From Memory has put the Madrid-born, London-based selector on the map, showcasing his exquisite taste and extensive knowledge of lesser known styles of Brazilian music.
Steppin’ in from Milan, Slow Motion Records’ Fabrizio Mammarella will be reppin' Automat Radio. You may have also heard of him as Telespazio or as one half of Black Spuma alongside Lauer.
Last but not least, Phonica residents Simon Rigg and Jon Jewel will be topping up this excellent line up.
As usual, this event will be FREE entry but it is mandatory that you add your name to the guest list here: mgl.io/3FTVz
