Inside & Around Crammed Discs with Marc Hollander
This month’s episode is a Marc Hollander mix entitled Crammed Cities, exclusively consisting of tracks from the label’s catalogue which all contain city names in their titles. Baghdad to Blankenberge, Cleveland to Casablanca, Berlin to Detroit, Chicago to Marseille, Moscow to Beijing, Warsaw to Lagos to Brussels… During the label’s four decades, many artists have used city names in song titles, for obvious or mysterious reasons of their own. This seemed like a playful, arbitrary constraint for leading the selector to trace yet another path in the Crammed jungle. This mix contains 35 tracks with cities in their title (except the last one, which encompasses many), released between 1977 and 2018 by artists including John Lurie, Suba, Tao vs Plaid, Cibelle & Devendra Banhart, Bass Clef, Adrian Sherwood, Carl Craig, Volti, Lio, some treasures hidden in the Made To Measure series, and many more.
A monthly two-hour show hosted by Marc Hollander (Aksak Maboul), the legendary founder of iconic Belgian label Crammed Discs. Digging deep into the label's prolific catalogue, and featuring unearthed gems alongside unreleased tracks, original interludes and new & upcoming music.VIEW SERIE'S PAGE
