Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 091 feat. the Mambo Brothers

It’s been a fantastic 2017 for Ibizan DJ and production duo Mambo Brothers. They have just released their new single “Control” which has been one of Pete Tong’s biggest tracks of the week on BBC Radio 1 and are coming off their first ever residency at the newly-opened Hï Ibiza.

For those not in the know, Christian and Alan Anadon, better known as the Mambo Brothers, were raised in the clubbing utopia of Ibiza. As the sons of the founders of Cafe Mambo, they were exposed to some of the best DJs in the world from an early age as they soundtracked the iconic sunset spot. They started their journey DJing at Café Mambo’s sister bar Savannah, warming up for legends like Roger Sanchez and Carl Cox, later going on to share the decks with more of the biggest names in electronic music when they “upgraded” to the world-famous Café Mambo decks. As producers they have enjoyed successful releases on Toolroom Records, Armada Subjekt and Saved Records, just to name a few, receiving the deserved respect of taste-making heavyweights Pete Tong, Annie Mac, MistaJam and Danny Howard.

To top it off their year they now join the Global Vibe Radio family with a special one-hour mix, and sat down with us to talk all things Ibiza as well as their single “Control” which is available for order here.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 84 feat. Brunetto (Freelastica, Irregular)

This week’s GVR podcast comes directly from Spain, where Brunetto hails from. A musician, composer, DJ and music journalist born in Seville but based in Barcelona, Brunetto’s musical soundscape is a wide one, as this eclectic mix proves.

Brunetto’s artistry can be traced back to the broken beat school, after which it followed a journey that saw him traverse through 80s funky-rap, trip-hop, 90s rock big beats, post-beats, post-dubstep, IDM and even future bass. Describing his musical output as “diverse” would be an understatement, just as it would be to use the same adjective to describe his involvement with the electronic music world.

He has played festivals the likes of Sónar, Move, Klubbers Day, Space of Sound, Territorios, Electroshock and Observatori, all the while holding DJ residencies at venues such as Bauhaus, Funclub, Sumo, Elefunk, Jackson, and Demo. His tours have taken him to DJ booths throughout Europe, all the while working as an artist manager, agent and holding several PR and journalistic positions within the industry.

His guest mix for GVR clocks in at just under a hour-and-a-half. Listen to it below, download it for free here and read on for our interview with Brunetto.

Global Vibe Radio 083 feat. Kaelan

Nico Campanella was born in Putignano (Italy), first getting in touch with music when, at the age of 11 he began studying the piano and, shorty after, became involved with various local bands.

His love and deep passion for everything concerning music later expanded to electronic sounds, becoming influenced by artists such as Basic Channel, Robert Hood, Substance et Vainqueur, Derrick May, Jeff Mills and many others.

In the last few years his necessity to propose a multifaceted vision of electronic music made it necessary to create new projects, including that of “Kaelan”, which has since becomehis main alias for techno. Under his side project “2030” he proposes electro-inspired music, while “Ixm” is his pseudo for dub techno sounds.

Kaelan is the owner of Subosc and co-owner of the Ranges imprint. The former aims to propose modern and classy techno music, while the latter is a tribute to reminiscent dub techno sounds. Currently, Kaelan is working on projects with some of the most known techno european labels, such as Construct Re-form, CLFT, Monnom Black.
