GAUDI

The creative flow of music from British-Italian beat pioneer, Gaudi seems never ending. Since 1980, he has produced 11 solo albums, 250 music productions, 80 remixes and has been featured on more than 100 compilations. His style is an organic hybrid of dub reggae, worldbeat and electronica (in the vintage sense). He has an obvious passion for funky old synthesizers, tape echoes and he’s a master of one of the coolest, old electronic instruments of all, the Theremin. Gaudi’s latest album on Six Degrees was a labour of respect and a technical marvel. Dub Qawwali is a BBC World Music Award-nominated recording that melds the voice of Pakistan’s late, great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan with Jamaican dub. Gaudi is Vanesa’s special guest in Today’s Spotlight.

+ SOME OF OUR FAVORITE VIDEOS: from Panjabi MC, The Red Elvises and the debut of a brand new old skool clip from Mexican Institute Of Sound!

M.I.S.

 INSIDE THE BEAT: You can’t write music on an empty stomach and you can’t sing it if your throat is parched. So, from a film shot behind the scenes during the making of Great Big Sea’s  new album, Fortune’s Favour, Alan Doyle introduces us to one of the most important steps in the recording process … the beer and munchies run. It’s a walk down the street, Inside The Beat with Great Big Sea.
