Diego Olivas from FOND/Sound presents an hour long mix of breathy, sophisticated, elegant songs from chanteuses with very leftfield takes on love (in honor of the Valentine’s Day season)… Just his way to stick seriously mature, sexy songs, from all corners of the world, together in a way that keeps it steadily seductive. This one’s for the lovers out there.
Listen to the latest broadcast from Diego Olivas, a very special one, focusing on a little known, lovable Japanese Fourth World record label: AWA Muse. In the early ’90s, musicians on their roster combined African, Native American, Indian, Pacific, and Middle Eastern folk traditions, with deep vibrational, ambient electronics and Japanese environmental music. For an hour you get an overview of that special AWA Muse sound.
FOND/Sound eternal digger Diego Olivas is back with another episode, entitled “Poems Of The Five Mountains” featuring songs inspired by, and crafted with, early ’80s keyboard samplers like the Fairlight CMI, Synclavier, and E-MU Emulator. Although, the created with early, modern ideas of time-stretching, on now dated technology there’s something in them that’s emotionally timeless. It’s forward-thinking nostalgia via fragmented, spliced-together memories.
FOND/Sound founder Diego Olivas returns to our station with a Halloween special this month, entitled “A Harvest Moon”, celebrating the British folk, rock, garage scene.
Listen back to Fond/Sound’s show premiere, entitled “Pari Shōkōgun”, focusing on the “Paris Syndrome”, through Japanese musicians who show an affection and influence based in Gallic Pop music.
