New Shit with Tina Hanae + Sam Lu – September 7th 2015


This weeks New Shit was definitely one to document. One of our gradually more frequent hosts, Pablo Duran, was in our studios this Monday to deliver some of his favourite new tunes. From electronic to rock to hip-hop, there was something in there for everyone. Half way through the episode Pablo surprised us with two special guests, Tina Hanae and Sam Lu, who collaborated in a stunning live performance. If you’re not familiar with Tina’s music, now is the time my friend. Her talented singing and Sam’s spot-on accompanying electronic drum set is not to be missed, and luckily you can listen to it on our archives.

Don’t forget to tune in next week to hear our music coordinator, Joni, bring ya some more magic~~

New Shit with Chris Corsano and Mette Rasmussen

If you happened to be listening in on Monday’s edition of New Shit, you’ll know that we were lucky enough to have drummer Chris Corsano and alto-saxophonist Mette Rasmussen perform live for us in the studio. With crazy talented improvisations and interesting techniques (including putting seemingly random items in instruments), the result was a myriad of jazzy sounds that were something else entirely.

In the case that you missed out, don’t worry. You can check out the episode here. If you like what you hear, and we think you will, Chris and Mette have released an album worth hearing called All The Ghosts At Once. Jam out to your hearts content, and tune back to CKUT for more exciting performances and guests!
