Alternative Zone Radio Js

I’d like to introduce you to the ‘Alternative Zone’ Radio Js on Ambush Radio. They are all unique & devoted to their styles. Here they are in random order: Skybaba, DJ SMT, Radiokombinat Berlin, Dr Dubhead & DJ AL Ex.

More details:

Skybaba is a former urbanite that is now living on the islands- he’s been involved with a number of FM stations in the past & has always been popular amongst radio crews & listeners alike. It’s widely known within certain music circles that he collaborated with DJ Dis©connect in a different place & time when both DJs were still on FM. According to stories I’ve heard… it was a great collaboration!  It’s a pleasure to have him in the ‘Alternative Zone’ on Ambush Radio.
His style is a mixture of Electronic, Dub & Ethnic sounds- he never gets influenced by trends or any kind of ‘guidelines’. He’s a real McCoy!

DJ SMT is a teenage DJ from London who’s got her own mind. Her style ranges from Indie to Grunge. She plays the guitar really well & she’s also a great cartoonist but you wouldn’t know that. Well, I do cos… she’s a member of my family 😛

Radiokombinat Berlin is a Berlin based Radio J collective & in its current formation consists of four Radio Js. Radiokombinat is a popular radio show with indie stations in Berlin & other German cities & is now in the ‘Alternative Zone’ on Ambush Radio.

As Radiokombinat is 20 years old now, I’d like to say… Happy Birthday Radiokombinat!

http://kleinding.de/radiokombinat/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Die-Geschichte-vom-RADIOKOMBINAT.pdf  (The text’s in German- use Google Translate if you get stuck)

Dr Dubhead– you can tell by the description… he’s a Dubhead from Berlin. He’s also a great musician & an artist & happens to be a friend of mine. Currently, Dubhead is simultaneously a member of Radiokombinat Berlin under a different DJ name.

DJ AL Ex– call him a seeker. DJ AL Ex likes diving into the roots & history of certain musical styles & he’s very good at it. Up till now he’s done two Funky productions about ‘Go Go’ & New Orleans funk, dedications on Prince & Bowie with rare stuff from both artists & a trip to India with ‘Bollywood Funk’ & ‘Crazy Music from India’. The latter has to do with the impact the 60s had on domestic Indian music- no need to tell you that he’s a friend of mine as well.

DJ Dis©connect- unlike other people & contrary to current trends…  I don’t like talking about myself- I’ll get someone else to describe me at some point.
Anyway, all I can say is that I’ve been involved with the radio (FM) since I was a teenager & here’s what I’m doing right now: ‘currently, my main program is called ‘Dis©konnection’. It’s a two hour Urban mix of Dub, Garage Rock, Punk, Indie, Hip-Hop and Electronic & it’s hosted on Ambush Radio in the ‘Alternative Zone’ aka ‘Weekend Zone’. I’m also responsible for ‘Random Drops’ & ‘Soul Asylum’ both hosted on Ambush as well’

Finally, I’d like to say thanks to George Tsokos the owner of Ambush Radio for accommodating us &  Anna Maria Krause for doing a lot of work behind the scenes- put some beer in the fridge guys cos… if everything goes well, you’re going to see me soon 🙂

Listening post

From now on the ‘Listening Post’ will be strictly dedicated to live streaming. If you want to check the weekly & weekend schedule for Dis©konnection*, Random Drops* & Soul Asylum* plus news & updates about  the ‘Alternative’ & ‘Weekend’ Zones look here.

Like us on Facebook. It costs nothing & shows your appreciation to us DJs for doing all this for free- DJ Dis©konnect

*My main program is called ‘Dis©konnection’– it’s a two hour Urban mix of Dub, Garage Rock, Punk, Indie, Hip-Hop and Electronic & it’s hosted on ‘Ambush Radio’ in the ‘Alternative Zone’

Here’s a few words about the rest:

*Random Drops is a result of mixes dedicated to one style or many styles depending on… the weather- call it moody 😉
*Soul Asylum has a lot of Soul in it but switches to the Blues, 50s Rock’n’Roll, Funk & Reggae- don’t be surprised if you notice a bit of Ska & Rare Groove at times.

London Venues Part 2

As promised, random posts about important London venues under the ‘Roots & Culture’ section are bound to continue… ‘Brixton Academy’ is one of the most important live music venues in London & can’t be missed: Info– it’s been around as a music venue since 1983 & has accommodated a huge amount of artists (ranging from Bob Dylan to Debbie Harry, The Clash, New Order & Leftfield- just to mention a few) & it’s still going strong under the name O2 Academy, Brixton: Home Page…but most people still call it ‘Brixton Academy’.
It’s an amazing Art Deco auditorium & worth checking out if your favourite band happens to be playing there live when visiting London.
Here’s a video which is going to help put you in the picture- apart from enjoying J5, you’ll be able to see what the venue looks like from the street as well as the inside:
