02/09/12 w/ Chris Kontos

Back to normal programming post-radiothon. Big love to everyone who subscribed to 3RRR FM during the 10-day drive. This week we welcome spring with a cross-continental cruise from Chris Kontos, an Athens-based photographer and DJ with a well-refined style and deep wealth of knowledge. Since folding his Plaid Music blog last year, Kontos has refocused his energy on A Journal Of Curiosities, a regularly updated document of his gifted eye, travels and musical discoveries. While we recommend you check out this LN-CC feature covering highlights from his collection of rare Greek records, Kontos has also planted many seeds across Test Pressing, Noncollective and The Remedy. Now sit back and let the Aegean Sea breeze comb through your hair.

Bamboo Musik and Noise In My Head are proudly touring legendary Japanese DJ/producer KENJI TAKIMI for three parties this month.

Head honcho of cult imprint Crue-L Records, Takimi is a true pioneer of the leftfield/alt-disco scene. Since 1991, the label has been at the forefront of alternative Japanese music, releasing Western breakthroughs Cornelius and Buffalo Daughter as well as his own prolific excursions Crue-L Grand Orchestra, Luger E-Go and Being Borings. An artists’ artist, Takimi’s respected productions have been lovingly remixed by the likes of DJ Harvey, Theo Parrish, Dr Dunks, Idjut Boys, Prins Thomas, Recloose and Joe Claussell, while Cut Copy, Dimitri From Paris and Sebastian Tellier have commissioned him for reworks. Tim Sweeney even credited his Beats In Space set as the show’s mix of 2010.

One of the most celebrated DJ fixtures on his home turf and sought-after worldwide, this marks Takimi’s maiden voyage to Australia where he’s destined to levitate audiences with cutting edge taste and an eclectic, romantic and spacey style that he’s forged over a 23 year career.
