    #35 David Mancuso & The Loft w/ Tim Lawrence

    #35 David Mancuso & The Loft w/ Tim Lawrence

    Today, it's my birthday! For the occasion, I've decided to share a special interview with Tim Lawrence, one of the most profoundly passionate music historians of the New York Dance scene of the 70s and early 80s I have ever met. And what better day to honour the legacy of David Mancuso? Birthdays. David loved birthdays. In the children's home where he grew up, Sister Alicia used to hold birthday parties for all the kids under her care.

    I've spoken about this with Tim Lawrence and the other issues related to the music at The loft, David Mancuso and the History Of New York City party culture. Tim is a Professor of Cultural Studies and Co-director of the Centre for Cultural Studies Research. He teaches music and is the author of seminal books. One above all, "Love saves the day". A brilliant documentation of the dance and disco scene in New York during the 1970s with interviews from key players in the era, such as Frankie Knuckles, Francis Grasso, Nicky Siano, etc. In today's interview, Tim passionately shared the details and his own experiences. Honestly, it was more than an interview. I wish I could spend more time listening to Tim, shedding light on the contribution of music legends and what New York in the 70s was all about.

    I hope you will experience the same! ✨

Raffaele Costantino is a passionate researcher and lover of African American Music. Besides being the presenter of the Musical Box programme on Rai Radio 2 and a music producer (with the moniker Dj Khalab), his name stage tells a lot about him and shows his connection to African Rhythms. In today's interview, Raffaele talks about his route into African music, starting from his artistic career, the intersection between DJ Khalab's music and Jazz:Re:Found to M'Berra - a collaborative album with a collective of Malian musicians from the M'berra Refugee Camp in southeast Mauritania.

    #33 Past, present and future of Jazz w/ Brazilian trio Azymuth

    #33 Past, present and future of Jazz w/ Brazilian trio Azymuth

    "Jazz is always present in our life. It's a sensation of freedom. The possibility to express yourself, mind and heart on that precise moment." Jazz has constantly been part of Azymuth's spirit. You can hear it everywhere. Furthermore, their open-minded vision of creating music back in the '60s and 70's lead them to mix Jazz with Samba and rock uniquely. Among the many songs they made, there's one in particular that I always love to listen to. It's called "Villa Mariana". I believe a perfect way to describe their timeless music. In today's interview, Azymuth talks about the past, present and future of Jazz, its musical roots and the contribution of festivals like Jazz:Re: Found to Jazz music. You will also hear some great stories from Kiko about Villa Mariana. Enjoy the chat! I know I did 😊

    #32 Jazz:Re:Found Festival w/Denis Longhi

    #32 Jazz:Re:Found Festival w/Denis Longhi

    "My parents bought me this album called JAZZMATAZZ by Guru. It was surprising to me listening to a new concept of Jazz blended with Hip-Hop. From an early stage, I was lucky enough to be able to discover a beautiful world." Denis was 14, and that album completely changed his view and approach to music. Most importantly, it was the first piece of the puzzle to discover different sounds, from house music with Nuyorican Soul to Acid Jazz with Jamiroquai and Incognito. His trips to London in the late 90s - enjoying the legendary Bar Rumba club nights founded by Gilles Peterson - and the first festival experience at Big Chill- led him to create Jazz:Re:Found. Certainly, one of the best Boutique Jazz Festivals in Italy, with great attention to the new wave of UK jazz. In today's interview, Denis talks about his musical background, the route into the festival industry, and what to expect from the fourteenth edition of Jazz:Re:Found. Listen in to get inspired!

    A new journey | Disco, Funk & Jazz Music Culture

    A new journey | Disco, Funk & Jazz Music Culture

    Hey music lover! Maikol here 👋 It's finally time to share with you a new chapter. If you noticed, I changed the podcast cover - Disco, Funk, and Jazz music culture. Well, everything that is my passion for music boils down to those genres. My involvement in music has primarily been inspired by my family & my home town. I grew up listening to the sound of Hector Lavoe, thanks to my mother, who had the patience to inject me with her love for "El Rey De La Salsa". When I was a teen, I loved buying CDs in specialized stores, and one of them shaped my musical taste: a compilation of disco, funk and soul (by @djtommyvee ). So initially leaned in that direction, discovering more about the history and its influence. I got deep into it with the help of my best mate, who took me to record shops. My life experiences did the rest. The most important were the weekends at the Moxa Club listening to legends and the meeting with Jean-Paul Maunick. (my first time at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club in London). So, I'm here to tell you about a new exciting mission. Helping you discover the power of African American Music. Ready for this new chapter together?

    "I think what fascinates me the most are the people behind that scene. It's all about sound. It's inspiring." Marie's love for Detroit started at Tresor, the iconic Berlin Techno Club, meeting the biggest names in the Techno music world. In 2010 she decided to go there and experience the vibe and energy of Detroit's underground music scene. In all this, her ability to capture the essence of iconic figures in the world of music brought her to publish her first book, 313ONELOVE - with more than 180 pictures of artists from Detroit's storied electronic music scene. In today's interview, Marie talks about her beginnings in music, the lifeblood of music between Berlin and Detroit, and Hush. Brilliant documentation about Berlin Club Culture in the pandemic era.
