finca am Radio Show - Electronica Balear
After a year of successfully broadcasting the finca am Radio Show on Ibiza’s most popular station Ibiza Global Radio, the program will now also begin airing on WE-LOVE-HOUSE.FM. As the subtitle “Electronica Balear” suggests, the show welcomes a wide range of musical genres and follows the original concept of the term “Balearic” (from the distant days when local Ibiza DJ’s spun a colorful and harmonious mixture of genre hopping sounds – much to the ecstasy of the open minded international music lovers). The program’s stylistic sound travels from numerous sub-genres from downbeat, electronic, disco to the open field of deep house music with the occasional acoustic curve ball being an important part of the sonic philosophy.
The show is the brainchild of OMMS Ibiza, the island’s first record label (operating since 1995 and with a number of tracks featuring significantly on the Café Del Mar compilation series) and has regularly featured special Balearic sets by Arian 911, (one of the founding members of the imprint) and by label artists Slow Pulse and Lux Second. Residents include: Bill Shakes whose notoriety grows weekly with his production, B-Shakes Edits and his wealth of experience from days spent running the seminal End Club record label, the legendary DJ Pippi one of the authentic godfather’s of the original Balearic scene and Café Del Mar resident Valentín Huedo, one of Ibiza’s up-and-coming DJ-producers. Guests include: Dr. Horn, elbarillo, Jon Needham (all from the FYB collective), El Haz plus live sets from label friends Cathy Battistessa & Nuwella Love (best newcomer 2012, Dance & Electro, VW Sound Foundation) who have all showcased their unique interpretation of the shows aural fingerprint and contributed to the finca am parties throughout 2011. After 50 highly successful episodes of the finca am Radio Show (represented by the soothing voice of the delightful musical maitre d’ Julia) a host of quality-assured guests are in the pipeline for 2012 to support our growing audience and finca am is now ready to spread it’s wings and carry the Balearic sound from the white island, overseas and beyond... finca am is delighted to share the love with WE-LOVE-HOUSE.FM!
