Episode 15 has Ilya Santana and Lexx bringing the disco, balearic, goodness for two hours.
Since his initial release on Balihu in 2004 Ilya Santana has been bringing the full frontal assault with extremely lush remixes and original productions. Raised on Vangelis, Moroder and Alan Parsons by his forward thinking dad, (yeah man!) Ilya starting playing the good business in ‘95 at any worthwhile spot in Gran Canaria. Shortly after he commenced production work in ernest and has amassed an impressive discography on labels like Permanent Vacation, Tirk, Gomma and soon Disques Sinthomme. Ilya will release his first full length next month "A Western Tail" on Nang records..... for more on the prince of Las Palmas check this.
Alex Storrer aka Lexx is the biz, a former record dealer and b-boy/mc, (there are videos on Youtube!) Lexx keeps it street and rare, his production work is subtle and exudes warmth, plus it always has depth, and an edge that the serious selector recognizes. Lexx has work out on Bearfunk, Compost, Tiny Sticks, and Permanent Vacation, etc... He has also released work under the moniker Kawabata. His Originals compilation for Mudd's Claremont 56 label is due soon. Lexx has been playing worldwide since the mid ‘90s and also held down residencies at Zurich's Club Dachkatine and Zukunft. Alex and Dennis Kane are joined for our brief chat by his houseboy "Brandon Clean"—soooo classy.
