Midori Hirano aka MimiCof is a Berlin-based musician, composer and producer. Her compelling fractal productions have been released by labels including Sonic Pieces, Daisart, Alien Transistor, Longform Editions, Dauw and Karlrecords. This weekend, we are honoured to share a mix from Midori of highly intuitive abstract music and some minimal electronic music. In the second half, FPDJ Simon delves into nocturnes.
This weekend on FPR, we air a takeover from Naarm-based angels Tyler and Bel.
Tyler and Bel are visual artists and selectors with an unboundaried approach to sound and era. They both have shows on Mouthfull - Tyler hosts the weekly broadcast Semi-Precious, whereas Bel hosts an infrequent show titled Some Times. On Episode 306, they share two mixes - the first explores music recorded in Denmark and Sweden between 1969 - 2022; the second captures music for dance and theatre.
Baby Kiko is a London based deejay hailing from the south coast of Te Whanganui-a-Tara. In the first half, they share a musical journey from sunset to moonrise, replete with outernational rhythms and dynamic bass vibrations. Afterward, we hear an unapologetically high energy mix from Atarangi, a Takatāpui Māori interdisciplinary artist and deejay based in Tāmaki Makaurau.
Malvern Brume is a London-based musician and sound artist. His music, formed through experimentations with electronic instruments, field recordings, amplified objects and voice, has been released on Alter, TakuRoku, Kashual Plastik, and his own imprint Infant Tree. This weekend on FPR, he shares a textured and tonal mix for the first hour. Afterwards, we get weird with FP DJ Gus.
Tāmaki Makaurau-based DJ Aw B has secured a bi-monthly residency at Pōneke's Club 121. The series, named 'Aw B B2B', sees her invite a special guest or two to play an all night back-to-back set at the club. This weekend, we share a two hour excerpt from the first event from early June, when Aw B and Hurricane Emily combined forces for the first time.
This weekend, we celebrate three centuries of broadcasts with Maria Moles. Maria is a drummer, composer and producer based in Naarm. Alongside her solo releases, including this year's stunning album For Leolanda for Room40, Maria currently plays with Jaala, Ajak Kwai, and Doroth, and has previously collaborated with FP faves including Mildlife, Krakatau, and Jonnine. For FPR300, she shares a collection that celebrates percussion and groove within music, drawing from artists worldwide. After that, FPR mainstay Simon plays some brainstem soothers.
Next Thursday, SWAMP81 dons Patrice and Loefah throw down at Valhalla in Te Whanganui-a-Tara, care of Pressure and racquetclub. We kick things off on FPR this weekend with the justifiably sole support act BABETECH. After that, we hear from multidisciplinary artist and PRESSURE head honcho Samuel Forbes.
We kick off the next episode of Friendly Potential Radio with Brotherhoodjz, two Tāmaki Makaurau-based brothers who champion amapiano and afro-house in Aotearoa. After that, we hear from Mr. Meaty Boy, a multi-disciplinary Pōneke-based Māori artist who runs WAY.PNT and is renowned for their genre-jumping club sets
it is time for our annual Aotearoa music special. This time, we are joined by Tāmaki Makaurau based selector Oaariki. Tune in as we share the 2022 edition of his mix of underground gems from across the motu.
