MR TC para Casi Baile

Volvemos a dirigir nuestra atención a la ciudad escocesa de Glasgow, desde donde Thomas Lea Clarke Aka MR TC nos obsequia con un mix de tonos oscuros y ritmos contundentes, compuesto en gran medida de cortes inéditos. 

MR TC es uno de los tres organizadores y DJs residentes de las fiestas Night of the Jaguar que se vienen celebrando desde hace cuatro años en The Art School, un edificio conectado directamente a la facultad de Arte que funciona como cafeteria y restaurante durante el día y por las noche se transforma en uno de los clubes mas importantes de la ciudad. Estas fiestas han servido para experimentar como DJs y poder traer a artistas de fuera como OKO DJ, Esclé, Karl Rothe, Eva Geist, Sacha Mambo o LAPS...

Además de esto prepara cada mes, junto con su amigo Conal Blake (Whilst), el programa Umgebung para LYL Radio, algo que funciona como una ventana abierta al panorama musical local, comisariando un amplio abanico de artistas emergentes. 

En su version en directo MR TC se encarga de tocar sintetizadores, cajas de ritmos, samplers y efectos, acompañado de Daniel Magee (Lo Kindre) tocando la guitarra y Matt Robin con la batería.  


Uno de los proyectos mas llamativos en los que ha estado involucrado MR TC es Tafi All Stars surgido de la colaboración entre el Green Door Studio de Glasgow y el Tafi Cultural Institute en Ghana. Tras la publicación del disco Youth Stands Up grabado con músicos de Ghana, Glasgow y Belice se estableció una relación de la que surgieron varios intercambios y viajes de estudios. Uno de estos primeros viajes dio como fruto el disco Outside Rhythm grabado por Tafi All Stars con MR TC, Conal Blake y algunos miembros del Tafi Cultural Institute.  

En este momento es inminente el lanzamiento de un EP en colaboración con Lo Kindre bajo el sello Neubau seguido de su tercer EP para Optimo, además de otros trabajos y remixes.   

Si quieres saber mas próximamente estará tocando en Lituania, Alemania, Turquía y EEUU, y también puedes ir a buscarlo a la escuela de Arte.

Muchas gracias Thomas!

We're paying attention again to the Scottish city of Glasgow, from where Thomas Lea Clarke Aka MR TC gives us a mix full of dark tunes and strong rhythms, including some unreleased tracks.

MR TC is one of the three organizers and resident DJs of the Night of the Jaguar parties that have been held for four years at The Art School, a building directly connected to the Art University that serves as a cafe and restaurant during the day and at night it becomes one of the most important clubs in the city. These parties have served to experiment and grow as DJs and to bring in artists from outside like OKO DJ, Esclé, Karl Rothe, Eva Geist, Sacha Mambo or LAPS ...

In addition to this he co-curates every month, together with his friend Conal Blake (Whilst), the Umgebung show in LYL Radio, something that works as an open window to the local music scene, programming a wide range of emerging artists.

In its live version MR TC plays synthesizers, drum machines, samplers and effects, together with Daniel Magee (Lo Kindre) playing guitar and Matt Robin playing live drums.

One of the most striking projects in which MR TC has been involved is Tafi All Stars, which emerged from the collaboration between the Green Door Studio in Glasgow and the Tafi Cultural Institute in Ghana. After publishing Youth Stands Up album recorded with musicians from Ghana, Glasgow and Belize, a relationship with several exchanges and study trips was established. One of these first trips resulted in the album Outside Rhythm recorded by Tafi All Stars with MR TC, Conal Blake and some members of the Tafi Cultural Institute.

Upcoming a collaborative EP with Lo Kindre on Neubau label followed by its third EP on Optimo, plus other works and remixes.

If you want to know more he will be playing soon in Lithuania, Germany, Turkey and the USA, but you can also go to The Art School looking for him.

Thank you so much MR TC!

Kirsty P para Casi Baile

Kirsty P lleva casi toda su vida coleccionando música en forma de discos de vinilo. Es su pasión, pero tiene muy claro que esta afición no es incompatible con el actual uso de masivo de la información. Su manera de aproximarse a la música combina las nuevas tecnologías (redes sociales, plataformas de compra-venta, etc.) con una recuperación del tiempo de consumo mas lento y selectivo que implican los discos, un tiempo que hace de filtro para esa sobreinformación a la que estamos expuestos estos días.
Y además cuenta con su “chulo” de vinilos particular, Ed, a quien envía sus listas de deseos..

Ella es de Londres, donde ha vivido siempre y donde la puedes encontrar con regularidad haciendo una de sus eclécticas sesiones. Tiene un estilo personal muy contundente pese a la diversidad de sonidos de los que se nutre y esto es algo que admiramos, un estilo que se manifiesta por si mismo sin ninguna intención de remarcarlo.
Aun así ella reconoce que siempre ha tenido una tendencia muy “leftfield”.

Pero nos parece que la mejor manera de resumir su actitud musical es con esta respuesta tan esclarecedora que nos ha dado cuando le hemos preguntado por su opinión sobre la música actual;

“Hmmmm…. es tan buena hoy como lo ha sido siempre, solo tienes que escarbar un poco.”

Si quieres ver a Kirsty P mezclando sus discos, entre todos los eventos te destacamos el de Edimburgo a finales de este mes de abril. Luego estará en Tirana (Albania) y en Berlín. Y añadimos a nuestra lista de deseos que repita el próximo mes de septiembre en el festival Convenanza, este año de vuelta a Carcassonne!


Muchas gracias Kirsty!

Kirsty P has spent most of her life collecting music in the form of vinyl records. It is her passion, but she's very clear that this hobby is fully compatible with using of massive data. Her way of approaching music combines new technologies (social networks, buy and sell platforms, etc.) with a recovery of the slower and more selective consumer tempo implied by buying discs, a tempo that works as a filter for this over-information which we are exposed on these days.
And she also has her personal vinyl "pimp", Ed, to whom she sends her wish lists.

She is from London, where she has always lived and where you can find her regularly doing one of her eclectic sessions. She has a very strong personal style despite the diversity of sounds that she uses and this is something we really admire, a style that manifests itself without any intention to emphasize it. 
Even so, she recognizes that she has always had a very "leftfield" tendency.

But we think that the best way to illustrate her musical attitude is with this enlightening answer that she has given us when we asked her about her opinion about current music;

"Hmmmm.... its just as good today as its always been, you just have to dig a little"

If you want to see Kirsty P mixing her records, among all the events we highlight the one from Edinburgh at the end of this month. Then she will be in Tirana (Albania) and in Berlin. And we add Convenanza Festival to our wish list, looking forward to enjoy her music again this year back to Carcassonne!

Thank you so much Kirsty!

Casi Baile #23

Existe un término para designar lo irracional e inexplicable en el arte del flamenco. Es el "duende", palabra utilizada por los gitanos andaluces para referirse al carisma propio del artista y ahora extendida al uso popular. Ese encanto misterioso e inefable que todos sienten y que ningún filósofo explica.

El "duende" es al flamenco lo que la naturaleza salvaje al romanticismo alemán; la fuerza grandiosa e imprevisible que se opone a la razón.

Un sobrecogedor mar embravecido.

There is a term to designate the irrational and inexplicable in the art of flamenco. It is the "duende", a word used by the Andalusian gypsies to refer to the artist's charisma and now extended to popular use. This mysterious and ineffable charm that everyone feels but no philosopher explains.

The "duende" is to flamenco what wild nature to German romanticism; the grandiose and unpredictable force that opposes reason.

An overwhelming sea raging.

Casi Baile #22


Siempre que estoy haciéndome la cena en la cocina
o si me estoy fumando unos canutos en la playa
o si me estoy haciendo frente al espejo la raya
oigo que sale desde dentro de mi 
una musiquilla que suena tal que así... 

First mix of the year. Enjoy it. While cooking, while smoking ...

Lo Kindre para Casi Baile


Desde Glasgow, Escocia, firma este mix Lo Kindre, proyecto tras el que aparece Daniel Magee, uno de los organizadores de las fiestas Night of the Jaguar celebradas bi-mensualmente en la escuela de arte de Glasgow y que aportan su magia a la rica escena de la ciudad programando a bandas y DJs de los mas diversos lugares, geográfica y creativamente hablando.  

Lo Kindre es la respuesta a la obsesión de Daniel Magee por la música de club lenta. Acaba de sacar con Optimo Music su EP de debut “Plant Up” que está repleto de ecos espaciales y bajos profundos estilo Dub, y nos ha preparado una selección que mezcla magistralmente este estilo con cortes ambient y experimentales. A nosotros nos a tocado la fibra y ya estábamos deseando compartirlo con vosotros.  

Que lo disfrutéis mucho  

Y permaneced alerta pues Lo Kindre planea una mini gira por alemania en diciembre y, en nuestra opinión, valdrá la pena estar en los comienzos de algo tan prometedor.  

Gracias Lo Kindre!

Hemos puesto imagen al mix con una fotografía de la serie Paradise del artista alemán Thomas Struth.




From Glasgow, Scotland, signing this mix Lo Kindre, Daniel Magee is the man behind it, besides he is one of the organizers of the Night of the Jaguar parties bi-monthly helded at the Glasgow School of Art which bring their magic to the rich music scene of the city with a schedule of bands and DJs from the most diverse places, talking in geographical and creative terms.

Lo Kindre is the result of Daniel Magee's obsession with slow club music. He has just released with Optimo Music his debut EP "Plant Up" that is plenty of space echoes and deep bass lines in Dub style, and has prepared for us a selection that masterfully mixes this style with ambient and experimental tracks. We were very touched by this and were already looking forward to sharing it with you.

Hope you enjoy it a lot.

And stay tuned because Lo Kindre is plannig a mini tour in Germany in December and, in our opinion, it will be worthwhile to be at the beginning of something so promising.

Thanks Daniel!


We illustrate this mix with a photograph of the Paradise series by the German artist Thomas Struth.

Casi Baile #21



Seguimos haciendo lo que nos gusta, descubrimos música y la juntamos buscando verdades ocultas. Las posibilidades son infinitas y el infinito es tan grande..

“El arte es una acción personal que puede valer como ejemplo, pero nunca tener un valor ejemplar”

Isidoro Valcárcel Medina

Feliz búsqueda

Still doing what we like, we find music and put it together looking for hidden truths. There are infinite possibilities and the infinite is so vast.. 

"Art is a personal action that can be used as an example, but never have an exemplary value"

Happy quest
