»MUSIC IS MY SANCTUARY«
Killing Time w/ DJ Edgar plus special guest PETER HITCH (AUS) (on mixcloud.com)
The weekend starts here! Mit einem funky Live-Mix aus allem, was DJ Edgar und Gast DJ Peter Hitch Spass macht.
Seit Jahren ist DJ Edgar Fan und regelmässiger Zuhörer der Show NU DIRECTIONS von Peter Hitch auf mixcloud.com. NU DIRECTIONS ist eine sehr reputierte und vielbeachtete Radio-Show aus Perth (JFSR-Radio, Australien) und präsentiert so ziemlich alles über Nu Jazz, Broken Beat, Latin Vibes, Soulful House, Funk und Disco … Peter Hitch erweist sich zudem als ein profunder Kenner der dt. und europäischen Nu Jazz-Szene. Und somit war es nur noch eine Frage der Zeit, wann Peter Hitch die Killing Time als Gast beehrt. DJ Edgar freut sich ihn für ein exklusives funky House-Set gewonnen zu haben … wir werden in der Sendung zudem uns ein bißchen mit ihm unterhalten! Reinschalten lohnt sich! See yaaaa …
PETER HITCH – ABOUT ME:
I love music …it’s simple as that really. It’s that one essential constant in my life that I just could not live without …well …except for oxygen, water, food etc …but I digress. You get it I’m sure.
I grew up in Romford, Essex, UK and and as a youngster my music tastes were varied. Anything from Pink Floyd to Punk to New Romantica. I started following the R&B Soul/Funk scene back in the late 70’s when I began my clubbing years in the UK. I became a regular at clubs like Zero 6, Flicks, Stage 3, Lacy Lady and of course the legendary Goldmine. It was at those clubs I really became hooked on the Jazz Funk/Fusion scene. Artists like Ronnie Laws, Lonnie Liston Smith, Herbie Hancock and many others shaped my music direction.
I left the UK in the late eighties and arrived in what was to become my new home of Perth Australia. It was certainly a shock to find a music culture so different and dominated by American pop/rock. But I still managed to maintain a reasonable connection with the UK and European music scene.
Fast forward a few years later and at a later stage of life about 10 years ago I became involved in DJ’ing. I have had regular shows on Morpher Radio, Soul Legends Radio and now happily back with JFSR. I also enjoy playing the occasional live gig at various venues here in Perth.
In more recent years I have become more focussed on presenting some of the newer styles including Nu-Jazz & Latin, Broken beat and soulful, Latin & Jazzy house styles. These sounds and styles are represented in my shows here and reflect my thoughts that a real love of music is not so much about nostalgia and that the good music from back in the day is matched by equally great music from here in the day. My signature show is Nu Directions and has a steady following on Mixcloud and Podomatic
I hope that you might get a chance to listen to the show and in turn I hope that you enjoy what you hear.
