In our twelfth installment of TURN THE RADIO OFF, we are joined by Los Angeles based International DJ and one half of Saint Le Roq, KIM ANH. We discuss "crystal gel" and the unintentional "fruitiness" of mid 90's garage/2-step. But more importantly we play some delicious music.You'll hear a preview of The Magician's remix of BENI's "It's A Bubble", a "crazy" cover from the Puppini Sisters, SBTRKT, new Tensnake and an spanking new mix of Mark Ronson from PLASTIC PLATES. We also are blessed with some selections and an exclusive mini mix from DJ KIM ANH. She's one of our favorites and If you're lucky enough you may just catch one of her set's in New York, London, Paris, LA and the likes.

TURN THE RADIO OFF? "Why should I?"- you may ask. Well... you
certainly don't have to. It's a free(ish) country. But if you've grown
tired of the same 12 songs on rotation or your favorite old
skool/oldies stations are no longer cutting it, we've provided an
alternative for you. You still get the mindless, nonsensical banter of
traditional radio (you know... for when you're lonely) but you get a
playlist of hand picked music: Under-appreciated jams from the crates
and freshly curated cuts from the digital world. This week we are
serving up D-Train, Still Going, Lisa Stansfield, Shit Robot, Tiger
and Woods and Junior Boys as well as an exclusive new Telonius/Art of
Tones track (Gomma Records) and some T-Girl realness guilty pleasures.

After a slightly long hiatus, Turn The Radio Off returns with it's
usual deep-crate dig-outs and freshly cut selections from the world's
of Disco, House, Hip-Hop, Pop and beyond/between. Episode 10
features music from Jessica 6, Larry Levan, Sade, Cut Chemist, The
Swiss, Soul Clap, etc and upcoming releases/ exclusives from Mike Simonetti (featuring
Sam Sparro) and Erodiscotique (new project from Dimitri From Paris/DJ Rocca). Plus the
usual nonsense from your hosts Sam Sparro and Jesse "Goden Touch" Rogg
and a brand spanking new Guilty Pleasure from someone declared
"mentally ill" by the state of California… and it's not Charlie Sheen.
Turn The Radio Off presents a bloated holiday special.
Joining Sam and Jesse, Hott City DJs F2M/Crza and Diane Keaton go everywhere from SWV to drum & bass to ethno-house and share some of their favorite cuts from this year. As if there weren't already too many djs in the kitchen, Charlie Rose, a recent adoption and new member of the family Sparro, also makes a cameo. Woof woof, indeed.
We're proud to announce the 8th installment of our "Turn The Radio Off" podcast.
This time around we've got golden nuggets by Arcade Fire, The Swiss, a Ronson double hitter, a Tensnake remix of the Scissor Sisters, a brand new remix by yours truly (for Miami Horror) as well as the always iffy Guilty Pleasure. Midset Sam (aka Sloppy Ho) delights us with a vinyl only excursion, get amongst it kids!
Loveliness all around!
This installment of TTRO finds our selectors in the middle of a summer heat surge in L.A. Diane Keaton guests as the three bring some newly acquired vinyl from a recent jaunt to the LBC, in between some new cuts and remixes by the Modus Crew and friends. Unfortunately, Sam forgets 1/2 of his records, and Diane forgets 3/4 of her punchlines. However, Jesse keeps it all in 4/4, so, as always, everything works out in the end.
