Sicco & The Infections
Sicco from Sicco & The Infections is a musician from Ledeberg, Ghent. Although most of his works contain elements of different musical subcultures, you could generally categorize them as popsongs with a tendency towards the absurd. His music is often the result of collaborations with different local artists, such as Darth Free, Dr Pipetto, Hecticcc, Mike Letterfretter and many more.
Not only is he an early fan of our show, he's also the voice behind our famous "Nachtschade" jingle. We invited him to give his take on music. His selection (think: Ninja Tune, Apollo, Warp and more) assures a Nachtschade episode within it's true spirit. Let's get infected!

Blackie & The Oohoos
Blackie & the Oohoos is the band around Loesje and Martha Maieu, two Belgian sisters with a knack for twisted and perplexing tunes. Their spooky folk and dreamy alt pop songs have a stubborn experimental edge due to the combination of Korg synths and special effects. For those in need of references; Beach House, Beth Gibbons and David Lynch might do the trick.
This special Nachtschade episode is divided in two parts. The first one is a quick blend of some tracks that influenced the Maieu sisters as artists. The second part of the show consists of an exclusive live performance of Blackie & the Oohoos in DUO.

For the last decade, the instrumental hip hop duo 40 Winks has been concocting loops and beats from the Belgian metropolis of Antwerp. They take their self-declared mantra of “No hay banda”, or “There is no band!”, from a Mulholland Drive scene in which a performing trumpet player pulls the brass away from his lips and still the music plays on without him. “No hay banda” is a telling statement of what 40 Winks achieves through the illusion of sampling, to see an orchestra where there is none – in the space between your headphones.
The group (also spelled without a space as 40winks, and referring to English idiom for taking a nap for a short period of time) is comprised of two producers; Padmo' and Weedy. 40 Winks hit the scene in 2002, with a whole slew of laidback beats. Eager to share their sound with the world, they released a couple of albums independently. The attention they got from this, allowed them to build with people from around the world. One of these independently released albums, More Than Loops, got reissued in Japan on Swamp Records, after that the ball kept rolling. On their first worldwide release, Extended Pleasure on Escapism Records (2005), they reached listeners well beyond the (instrumental) hip hop community with the song "Melancholia". After appearances on compilations, like Weapons Of Hope on Little-D (2006), they got a chance to do their thing on the renowned label, Merck Records with Sound Puzzle (2007). All this led them back to Europe, where the German based Project: Mooncircle welcomed them with a spot on the compilation Heart On The Right Spot (2007) and two full albums; The Lucid Effect (2008) and It's The Trip (2011).
Padmo' and Weedy made an exclusive mixtape for the Nachtschade radio show. Join them on a road trip to anywhere, guided by the voices and colors of Grizzly Bear, Tangerine Dream, Fela Kuti and much, much more. Bring your music player and tell your honey you won't be home for dinner. It's the trip, not the destination.

Embodying the spirit that has imbued Apollo Records with a fresh lease of life since last year’s rebirth, Jack Lever aka Bering Strait channels a wealth of electronic influence, applying his own natural sense of rhythm and production talent to create purposeful and emotive music.
A 21 year old producer from the High Peak, Bering Strait builds his own brand of organic and ethereal electronica from self recorded instrumentation and field recordings. Interpreting his dreams and observations of his rural surroundings, he drifts from beatless soundscapes to more upbeat movements, employing a dynamism and drive that can be sourced to his origins as a percussionist.
Bering Strait presents his favourite tracks and influences. Expect music by Tortoise, The Cinematic Orchestra, The Smashing Pumpkins, Squarepusher, Ulrich Schnauss and much, much more.

From the get-go, we always wanted to make our own visuals to accompany our live DJ sets; thus to enhance the cinematic feel of the music we play. Here's a taster; a video clip by Nachtschade for Apollo Records' newest signing Bering Strait.
"A video which, through a yellowed lens, follows a woman on an afternoon stroll around grassy meadows and peaceful lakes until the sun sets."
"Spellbinding landscape dominates the video, a suitable accompaniment to such soaring material."
Our next guest is a woman who needs no introduction. Inne Eysermans; the frail but extremely beautiful voice of Amatorski, made an exclusive mixtape for our radio show.
Inne obtained her master’s degree ‘music production’ (2006-2012) at the Royal Conservatory in Ghent. She composed music for animation, music theatre and short film and is currently working on music for documentaries.
Taste some new Amatorski & Per Son sounds, sniff some cassette mail and cherish the film pieces. Watch a film without images.

Without any doubt a rising star in the dj-sphere; dj Nosedrip has proven to be a musical visionary. His radioshow on Villabota, his mixes on Mixcloud and his Moody channel on 22Tracks have gained him critical acclaim. He is co-founder of the Surf Kill label and resident for several party concepts bringing new live in a dull nightlife environment. We recently had the pleasure of having a little sit down with Nosedrip in our studio, he presented his favorite records of the past year. Kind of. Nocturnal emissions guaranteed.

Pomrad is the alias of young jazz pianist Adriaan Van De Velde, who, with the release of his 'Vlotjes EP' in May 2012 and extraordinary live set, quickly drew the attention of the local media & public. 2012 saw Pomrad play on the Lefto Stage at Dour Festival among many other clubs & festivals, as well as being featured on the Brownswood Electric 3 compilation.
Being compared to contemporary producers such as Hudson Mohawke, Rustie or Onra, he draws as much from other equally diverse sources such as 90's hiphop, 80's funk or even Chick Corea & Herbie Hancock. As such and as a jazz musician his focus is on intricate progressions and improvisation, and on creating a nostalgic feel and sound. Live he makes use of synthesizers, talkbox & keyboards. Laying out the different samples over his keyboards gives him control over the groove of each set, allowing for variation and improvisation in each individual part.
This special Nachtschade episode is divided in two parts. The first one is a quick blend of some tracks that influenced Pomrad as an artist. The second part of the show consists of an exclusive live performance. Pomrad is currently taking a brief break from touring to focus on his next EP and liveset, planned for spring 2013.

Ludique is an electronic music duo from the Netherlands. Luuc Oosterveld and Dick de Bie
started a collaboration in early 2009; at that time they were both playing in a post-rock band
called ‘Pink Champagne’ and were individually producing electronic music. When the band stopped,
they decided to carry on their collaboration and turn their love for post-rock and the likes into electronic music. They are influenced by acts like Radiohead, Kashmir, Trentemøller and Extrawelt. The trailblazing duo from Groningen have two albums under their belts, exhibiting an excellent mix of progressive techno with minimal, electronic and ambient flourishes.
