Radioaktivities:episode.050:'Urban Tropical (Salsadelic II)' + max50

Radioaktivities transmits a special set in celebration of it's 50th show. Under numerous guises, Uwe Schmidt has released a rapidly growing body of work integrating the key elements of Latin music using only electronic sequencers, samplers and synthesized textures. Recently, Mr Schmidt's dreamed-up character Senor Coconut has received much exposure from the press because of his work covering an entire album of songs from the internationally popular band Kraftwerk. Previously only available in Japan, that album "El Baile Aleman" (the German Dance) has recently been reissued in Europe, making it readily available to a larger audience. This album at once revolutionizes 'techno' music and the practice of cover interpretations by turning the medium into a kind of chameleon that can adopt any influence, limited only by the skill of the programmer. Schmidt's Senor Coconut has also recently remixed the latest new release from Kraftwerk "EXPO2000" which will also be played during the show. Other related material to be played is the newly released Chilean rap album "XXX" under Schmidt's Atom alias. A collaboration with MC Teatime, XXX features saucy triligual raps over the top of heavy hip-hop rhythms, a spectacular fusion of things urban and tropical. This music is unlike anything else out there, top notch entertainment so tune in!
