DISCOVERY SARDINIA RADIO
My ultimate vinyl dj set with jazzy house tracks and some breakbeats made with two decks and a valve rotary mixer. My name is Marco Cabras and I was born in Cagliari, Sardinia in 1974. My approach to music has always been, from early adolescence, as a simple music lover. I started DJing at parties at about twenty years old, offering funk, soul, latin jazz and much more. At the same time I have always followed the house and techno scene, especially from Chicago and Detroit but also the European one. In my latest mixes performed with the latest records I have tried to propose classics of the past with more recent tracks.

Amicably greeting goodbye to the Summer, an off-centering summer indeed, the summer of the post-lockdown nonetheless quite a momentous summer for me. The summer of a few but essential ethical evenings spent with friends-artists-DJs and record collectors. A summer almost completely savoured thanks to the bubbly- jazzy ‘made in Italy’ music scene and crucially, the happening exception for me, of meeting the astounding Fatoumata Diawara when I was asked to open for her at the LOCUS festival where she played live in the beautiful setting of a typical Apulian agriturismo country farm accompanied by uber talented ‘Snarky Puppy’ leaders, multi-instrumentalists Michael League and Bill Laurance and the Orchestra della Magna Grecia. OpenUP # 5 is a heartfelt mix born reflecting on the distant beauty of two shooting stars spotted on San Lorenzo’s night after a magical Salento evening in music (respect, love and gratitude to La Restuccia UrbanMasseria https://www.facebook.com/larestuccia/). OpenUP#5 is a kinetic selection made without great pretensions other than re-creating moments and sensations of collectively active joy: the energising unexpected cosmic connection found in the rhythms and the dynamics of upbeat music selected from ‘old and new’ from all over the world sent across to everyone worldwide. Just vitally […]

Ongoing Via Trinità 161 there is a difficult definition. The most correct is perhaps that of community: of spaces, precisely, of projects, a community that has a precise idea about the city. We have a seat, not by chance, in the historic center of Sassari, overlooking the historic walls and the Rosello Valley: we could not escape the vitality of a beautiful and abused area. We are so many and well-intentioned, and that is why we do so many things.

Ritual was born from the dream and the genius of Andres Flore, officially opened August 6, 1970, immediately becomes a reference point for the island’s nightlife. A granite castle rises on a hill just outside of Baja Sardinia. An extraordinary work of art in harmony with the surrounding nature; Flore preferred to define its Ritual a scene and did not like to talk about architectural work, but as not to admit of being in front of a perfect example of organic architecture. Landscape and human work naturally appear interconnected, the Ritual seems, in fact, arise spontaneously from the rock and the surrounding vegetation. The construction scheme Spiral selected by Andres, charging his “baby” with meaning and symbolism esoteric. Every part of the room has been studied specifically in close relation to its position in relation to the landscape and the stars.
