Like a cold soup or a hot beer, we aim to bring something a little bit different to your summer.
This month’s episode is a 2 hour special featuring ‘Somatic’ a dual-heritage Indian-English Sound Artist from Exeter, now based in London. His diverse creative practice encompasses sound and music for theatre, dance, screen, club dancefloors and DJing. Although his sound is rooted in sound systems and dance music culture he takes influence from the rural landscape he grew up in and the myriad of genres from around the world he was brought up on to create his unique sonic identity. His recent notable work includes: Sonic Landscapes of Colour – a 2-part (ARIA Nominated) audio-documentary sharing the stories of young people of colour who have grown up in the South West subsequently broadcast on the BBC, The VR film “Child of Empire” which premiered at the Sundance film festival, DJ sets at festivals such as Boomtown & Glastonbury, The play Daytime Deewane ( OFFIE Finalist Best Orignal Sound – Young Peoples Theatre) set ‘in Londons last Daytimer’ in 1997 and over 500k+ plays on streaming platforms.
What would a petrodragonic apocalypse feel like? Well, we’ve got the soundtrack for it, and shall say no more on the matter. Heavy guitars, grinding synth, industrial textures, and some post apopalyptic folk was the order of the month. And the only way to feel what we felt is to make something bittersweet and spicy…to drink, of course!
