MYLES WATSON

This week we’d like to introduce you to yet another one of our radio presenters: Myles Watson. A student on the Electronic Music Production & Performance Degree, he joined the radio last year.

 

What is good?

His show Whattz good is dedicated to hip-hop, future beats and trap. It showcases unknown artists and new talent. The show was born from Myles’s found love for the record label soulection. This label showcases a wide variety of genres which inspired him to to show off the songs he has loved from producers both known and unknown. With his spot on etikett he has been able to feature new artists from the UK.

The freedom of having no real boundaries in terms of genre is what makes etikett radio special to Myles. It gives him the opportunity to put on entire episodes showcasing one particular artist.

To learn more about Myles’ approach for etikett radio and how the show got its name, watch the video below:

AND we mentioned previously, one of those showcase episodes was about a collective founded by his friends called “TSWU” and their EP release. Listen to that episode below.

INBAL GORDON

Continuing our video series about etikett radio (a platform by music lovers for music lovers) we introduce host and recent grad Inbal. She just finished our Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree.

During her entire time at dBs Berlin, Inbal had her own radio show on etikett. In fact, she was one of the first members of our student-led radio station which means she has seen it grow into what it is today.

The art of flow

Her show Lost in Transmission has been running for 2 years and has really shaped the direction etikett radio is heading in. It is about playing the music she likes – which also means music that maybe wouldn’t otherwise be played on the radio. For her what is most important about her time on the air is to “create a flow”, which sometimes means she would play entire albums without even talking during the show. This is what the radio is about though, giving space to new and undiscovered music as well as experimentation.

Other programmes on etikett include shows that focus on tips and tricks for production techniques, on sampling or on specific genres… just to name a few topics. With this year’s new round of shows we expect to see even more fresh ideas, new show concepts and rare music gems!

FREAK A. DELLA

Opportunities for our students are things we are always keen on creating here at dBs Berlin. That’s why we made etikett radio – a platform by music lovers for music lovers.

For those of you who didn’t know yet, dBs Berlin has its very own radio station called etikett. The concept behind it is simple, each student tailors their show to their interests. At the heart of all the programmes is a focus on exploring sound. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing some more facts about etikett. Included in this series are video interviews with some of our hosts talking about the inspiration behind their shows.

Some history and a herstory

Founded in February 2014, etikett has already seen 2 successful years of live shows broadcast from our dBs Berlin centre in Friedrichshain on 3 days a week. This is all made possible by the students involved who take on roles as presenters, technicians and engineers.

One of our hosts is Norom, aka Freak A. Della. She became a part of the etikett team in 2015 when she joined the Electronic Music Production & Performance Diploma at dBs Music Berlin. Her show, Freak A. Della’s Sound Bites, is all about the connection between music and food and how these two different sensory experiences influence each other. Thanks to her show, we found out that there are a few very specific means by which your experience of eating can be influenced by the sounds played around you. But we will leave that info up to Norom to share.

In her video introduction she talks about how this show concept came to be, what motivated her to become a part of etikett radio and what her vision for the station is.
