Tropical soundwall madness from the global niches
Simon Grab has been playing as a DJ for the dancefloor and for radio shows. As a member of the Norient Collective and the Motherland Soundsystem, he mostly focuses on urban beat and bass music from the global niches: Kuduro, Kwaito, Gqom, Electro Chaabi, Afrohouse, Cumbia Electronica, etc. Coming from a rather dubby background he passes his mixes through his set of sound effects, mixing and mashing it up with experimental noise sounds, glueing together the whole madness to a tropical soundwall.
When being asked to do selections for radio shows Grab likes to go beyond his usual dancefloor selection, adding an eclectic mix of historic recordings from musique concrete, early noise releases, to weird electronics, dark metal and what- and whoever he crosses on his own musical path.
