Recording at Sing Sing for PBP

Last week we were recording a live show at Sing Sing Studio for Psychodelic Birthday Party. This initiative is a creation of Milan Ciric & Johaness Faberij de Jonge, the intention of the program is to open up the doors for the alternative as opposed to what the mainstream commercial radio and tv stations are broadcasting at the moment. Hearts and souls of all people involved is really at the place and we all very much enjoyed being a part of this great initiative. For those of you who don’t know Milan Ciric, he is a legendary producer and sound engineer of the alternative and punk rock scene of Yugoslavia back in the day. We played two completely new songs written specially for the occasion with Driftkikker’s new additions David Barker on Drums and Genzo Okabe on the Saxophone, both who landed in the project in no time and extended the music of Driftkikker with their talents. New material is being written and is including some contemporary blends of electronic sounds borrowing from Dubstep & Trance fusing with Ambient and Lounge, while playing live on top of it mixture of Jazz, Rock, Soul & Funk.

The next episode of Psychodelic Birthday Party featuring Driftkikker and Puck Cyson (produced by Daddo) should be online in about a month, as soon as it is out there I will be letting you all know.

Interview with Mijke van Wijk on Radio6

Hiya all,

So what’s the news, today I got interviewed by Mijke van Wijk from NPS (Dutch National Radio) Radio6.
She picked up on Driftkikker whilst surfin and got curious about the whole lot behind it 🙂 Gave me a call and we had a most pleasant conversation about how things came to be.

For you who are not familiar with Mijke, here are few words about her:
Mijke’s Middag stands for a pleasant mix of energetic jazz and soul!
Mijke van Wijk lets you hear that jazz is not necessarily a ‘moaning music’: “Jazz is Hip. I oftenly see jazzbands that are turning the clubs upside down. That is the sort of music you can hear on my show. In about five years the whole Netherlands will be listening to jazz at home”, says Mijke van Wijk.

Regularly there are live bands on the show and present the latest tracks or projects. Next to that Mijke is keeping you updated about the most important developments in the Jazz, Soul and World.

You can listen online every working day as well @ http://radioplayer.omroep.nl/radio6
