Christmas time is right behind the corner and I’ve been in need of something fresh, new and non-conventional in terms of Christmas songs. Hiatus Kate comes to the rescue as always with a bit of a misty and silvery christmas single. Melancholic, with just the right touch of nostalgia, it is a truly beautiful christmas track to put on, whenever you get the need to blur into the soft and warm, yet snowy spirit. The voice of Nai enters fresh and cold, almost like the winter wind trying to snugg into the room whenever we open the door.

The first time I heard Tash Sultana was on Youtube – her live bedroom session – and I couldnt believe what is happening! A solo artist, translucidely connecting to music, and me being able to feel it in my own small bedroom. Years have passed, I continued to listen to her music and eventually went to see her live performance in Berlin. This was when I realized what an extraordinary musician Tash Sultana is. The new album “Terra Firma” – solid ground – reached me like a 14 song message touching upon different aspects of the sense of being human,

. I feel that music has a lot in common with the art of painting – it creates an image, an explosion of colors, feelings and visions in our minds without us even noticing. “Enero” is an exhibition of emotions and sensations that float heavy, yet free in an underwater gallery of the Universe of Music. Expression, memories and feelings transmitted through sounds, to later reach the deepest parts of the body and soul. Dimensional and soothing, freeing and heartbreaking – these are the thoughts that emerged from my mind after listening to the album “Enero” by Maqueta.

I feel that music is this neverending space where anything can happen, where everything is welcome and can be experimented. This was what I thought after listening to “Close to Paradise” by Soulwax (in collaboration with Michel Gaubert and LOEWE). The track uses interviews (which are added seperately to the album) with travelers and hippies who ended up on Ibiza in the 70s and 80s. “Close to paradise” combines tropical electronic music and nature sounds as a base for mind-opening thoughts and memories in the interviews. This was something I really needed to hear after being in quarantine for a

After spending a year and a half in Argentina I discovered many small bands from South America. Those types of bands I would never have discovered without living there and meeting people who create and share what they love. Agua Oscura (meaning “dark water” in English) is one of those bands. The first album of this mystic and spiritual duet ( simply named Volumen 1) took me so much by surprise, that I caught myself wandering around the streets of Buenos Aires listening to it twice in a row. The artists created a unique ambience with South American folklore,

Seeing art imerge and interchange between one another is something that makes me feel that everything is continuously connected. Art is made to influence, to inspire and to move the idea of creating forward. This is what came to my mind when listening to “Laputa” – a song by Hiatus Kaiyote from the album “Choose Your Weapon”. This jazz-funk band from Melbourne creates a very peculiar ambience with their imaginative and fusion-based work. They themselves call the style “wondercore”…and after hearing what they do, well… no wonder. The song “Laputa” was created as a tribute, after the retirement of

I used to travel by train all the time, and would always prepare music to take on the ride. A perfect soundtrack that would flow by the changing scenery, the train windows becoming a music video of all times! Whenever I go back to the most “memorable” train trips, I hear the amazing voice and musical creation of Esperanza Spalding. She would take me into a different dimension, presenting an entire play of emotions/questions in one album. Spalding’s Emily’s D+Evolution album, is a piece of art big time – not only to be listened to but also to be seen
