BITM #463 Klartraum
April 05, 2016 12:53 AM PDT
Their name means lucid dream, an accurate description of what their musical offerings entail. Nadja Lind and Helmut Ebritsch have been playing together under the Klartraum banner since 2006 at Fabric, as part of Circoloco at DC10, Tresor and many other places around the world. Their contrasted dynamic is part of who they are: Her, a ball of electric energy. Him, a calm and quiet ruler of the decks. The iconic two have also been running their well-respected label Lucidflow, and have “Space Gecko” EP coming out on Wolf Trap by April 11th. For those who have never experienced lucid dreaming, this episode will be a good first fix. Enjoy!BITM #459 Lee Van Dowski

We are extremely excited to welcome this man to the show!

Spending his early years in Cape Town, he moved to London, followed by Lisbon, before finally settling in Berlin. He has also reated his Bodycode alias - somewhere between the beats for the body and melody for the soul - layering tech-funk with wisps of melody, heady effects, and a liberal wash of otherworldly vocal samples. His alter-ego maybe? Enjoy this exclusive recording of his live set at Live At Robert Johnson. Brilliant!BITM #437 Frank Lorber guestmix

Originally a group of like-minded friends playing each other their favorite tunes, to hosting some of the worlds biggest DJs, Beirut In the Mix has become a Lebanese institution. BITM has built a solid reputation on its ability to stay one step ahead of the game; from modest 2006 beginnings in random venues scattered around Beirut partially ravaged landscape, the events soon picked up a healthy following and, due to popular demand, the successful monthly parties eventually spurned their own radio show - with now well over 400 episodes under its belt - airing Saturdays 8pm (Beirut time) on Mix FM 104.4 and cementing it's place as the pre-party warm up for Beirut's underground.
9 year deep, Beirut In the Mix continues to deliver on its musical promises, creating consistently exciting parties, podcasts and radio shows for Beirut increasingly prominent underground music scene.
