pop // diy // worldbeat // exotic // outsider

This programme was born out of the desire to share the best of the most amazing downloads siphoned from deep within the bloated bowels of the globetrotting music blogosphere. A lost world of undiscovered artefacts and simply outrageous sounds await your careful attention with an oddball selection wandering through past and present independent music, worldbeat gems, exotic oddities, bizarre disco, creepy soundtracks, fuzzy library, deviant crossovers, primitive electronics, amateur incidents, nowadays outsiders...and forgotten fourth world composers. From the sublime to the ridiculous but all fit to be branded "chOOn"!

02/02/2017 // The Art of the chOOn!!

Our first show of 2017 casts the stylistic net far and wide to achieve a lushly erotic fusion of myriad genres and outernational vibes - expect rhythmic sass, heady ambient space, unique textures, frayed fourth world styles, gamelan funk, hyper footwork voodoo, free jazz flights and of course, mothertrucking chOOns!!

Non-standardised chOOnage and unique vibes by way of pinging Estonian strings, gamelan tones from Japan, extractions of odd electronic scales from the former Yugoslavia and U.S.S.R., cutely animated pygmy tones from Poland, devilish traces of tribal rhythm on Coloursound, one-string groove control from Cameroon, plasmic formations from Portugal, sweetly synthetic cassette plongs from Sudan and a trip down the yellow green road with Dorothy, the Wozard of Iz and mr chOOn!!
