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. The Ritual, was one of the first restaurants in the world to move from his DJ booth isolated the focus of disco console.

Søndae Records Radioshow is back with Quincy Jointz and a double feature show. This month we present you 2 delicious guestmixes full of funky grooves: first mix comes by Berlin-based Grandmoflash, second one by The Fritz from Cornwall (UK). GRANDMOFLASH has been floating around in the musical sphere for 30 years now, leaving little untouched and tried out. The journey began in the late 80s with Hip Hop, Disco, Funk and experimental instrumental music like the one Jean Michelle Jarre. The fascination of music and what you can do with it, or with it, has persisted to this day. Having grown up in the graffiti scene in Hamburg, it was just a little step to get into DJing. The playing field was shaped by the hip hop sound of the 90s through the instrumental version of the sound of Ninja Tunes and MoWax expanded and found its climax (mid to late 90s) in drum and bass. As a pure club and party DJ, Grandmoflash made a name for himself in his home town of Hamburg and around. But playing alone wasn’t enough and so he formed a sound system to manifest a German-speaking reggae dancehall bashment sound and toured all […]

This month my selection is dedicated to celebrate the life and legacy of legendary drummer-percussionist Airto Moreira who was 80 on August 5th. Pointless to introduce how quintessential Airto’s presence has been so far for working as a musician for about 60 years. Airto’s unique style has influenced the direction of modern jazz around the world. His impact was so powerful that Downbeat magazine added the category of percussion to its readers and critics polls which he has won over twenty times since 1973 … the rest is history and with this selection, I wish Airto Moreira many happy returns and many more years of life celebrations to come. Bravissimo Airto – Happy 80th birthday !

One word: ENERGY. It encapsulates the spirit of Filippo Tazzer. Whether it’s Soul, funky or soulful, boogie or disco, the charge it sends is always hot and engaging. Black is another custom made dress for him. Almost all that comes from “black” music ends up in its repertoire and then in its shelves. Polyphonic Dj, Filippo Tazzer is also a major catalyst for ideas. It is in fact the deus ex machina of Time to play, a party that from Vicenza’s province has become famous everywhere thanks to guests of the likes of Antal, Ge-ology, Volcov, Twice, Native, Ksoul, Luca Trevisi and Grasso brothers. Musicand passion of a man, SoulTaz, who finds energy in living in music.
