Run by some of the team behind the London-based DIY station 199radio, Threads will look to curate a “unique selection of underground, cutting-edge music, while providing a platform for a range of socially and politically-focused talk-based content.” Listeners to the new station can expect to hear music from the likes of Chaos Theory, Timothy J. Fairplay, Jerome Hill, Liquid Ritual, Loose Lips, Graham Dunning, Ireen Amnes, Faux Naïf, Rommek, and Sisu, among others. The station will also feature a second stream, Threads*, which will play host to a sister studio situated in Berlin, alongside an array of content from across the world.
At launch, listeners can expect to hear music from the likes of Chaos Theory, Timothy J. Fairplay, Jerome Hill, Liquid Ritual, Loose Lips, Graham Dunning, Ireen Amnes, Faux Naïf, Rommek and Sisu – alongside a raft of new and exciting talent. But music isn’t everything, and the station will have equal focus on incredible and important things happening in the community at large. The Hospice Biographers charity relays the stories of people in palliative care; the INSPIRE!
Show features the perspectives of young people outside of mainstream education; and the Bubble Club music show run by people with learning difficulties and autism, to name a few.
The station also features a second stream Threads* which will play host to a sister studio situated in Berlin, alongside an array of content from across the world. As with the Tottenham arm, Threads* will actively engage and participate in the issues facing the communities it streams from. It will identify international collaborations by the specific district of its contributors, rather than the city, for example Threads*Moabit (a district in Berlin) or Threads*Vinohrady (a district in Prague). A global station with a local focus.
The Threads launch party will take place at The Cause on the evening of Thursday 24th January, with an array of talent ranging from live experimental electronics through to spoken word, punk, stand-up comedy, and some of the station’s cutting edge DJs… not forgetting some amazing South Indian-inspired food from Dosa Dons.
Launch Event Line-Up: Ariadne’s Labyrinth, Colder Tech Support, Daniel John, Fiscal Cliff, Gareth Main, Human Pet, Interrupt feat. MC Natty Campbell, Kyle Monologue, LKF b2b Medallion Man, Marie Malarie, Repeat Beat Poet, and Timothy J. Fairplay
As part of pop up events hosted by Threads, a 15 hour streaming/live event will be held on 2nd March this year in Skopje so stay tuned for more information.
