BAMM.tv Team Playlists – Wirjo Hardjono, Communications Administrator

Posted on: No Comments

Friday means only one thing at BAMM.tv (well, actually, Friday means a lot of things, but for the purposes of this blog entry, let’s all just play along) – time to unveil another one of our BAMM.tv Team Playlists, in which one of our esteemed BAMMers shares their top five tunes of the moment.

This week: Wirjo Hardjono, Communications Administrator …

“Switch (The Science Project)” (Fahrenheit 1/15, Part 2: Revenge of the Nerds, 2006) – Lupe Fiasco

After making a great first impression on me with “Kick Push”, Lupe Fiasco now takes us on a tour through different rap styles and subjects, showing off his knowledge and the depth of rap.

“Made You Die – Trayvon Martin Tribute” (n/a, 2012) – Yasiin Bey, Dead Prez, and mikeflo

Politics of rap: after the death of Trayvon Martin, Dead Prez, Mikeflo and Yasiin Bey pick up the microphone to let the world hear where they are coming from, representing the thoughts and feelings of many living that life. Perhaps the most ‘real’ and most important use of the art form?

“Hands On The Wheel” (Feat. A$AP Rocky) (Habits & Contradictions, 2012) – ScHoolboy Q

The smooth sound and smooth flow of A$AP Rocky and ScHoolboy Q. Part of the new hip hop generation taking it back to the streets. Honest, personal hip-hop with a dark atmosphere.

“Big Spender (Feat. A$AP Rocky)” (n/a, 2012) – Theophilus London

A$AP Rocky returns in Big Spender rapping over one of the best hip hop beats I’ve heard in some time. Big, powerful, pure perfection.

“Hot Cheetos & Takis” (n/a, 2012) – Y.N.RichKids

Pure fun, go big or go home. It’s all about the hot Cheetos and Takis.

If you’ve been avidly watching all the great performances we’ve unveiled from our BAMM.tv Global Scene Live sessions in Amsterdam (and if not, why not?) you’ll probably want to know more about the bands who produce such great music. Well, because we’re just so darn good to you sometimes, we also filmed a series of exclusive interviews with each and every one of them.

Koffie’s unique brand of Afrobeat-jazz-funk was a particular highlight, exemplified in the form of ‘There Is A Catch’ among others. But what about the guys behind the beats? Take a look at the video above …

Hidden: BAMM.tv presents Jungle By Night from BAMM.tv on Vimeo.

We’ve been throwing all sorts of great music your way with our ‘Global Scene Live: Amsterdam’ season, and we have even more exciting dispatches from Amsterdam’s legendary Desmet Studios waiting in the wings. In the meantime, though (and sticking around the Netherlands) we have something very, very special indeed.

Jungle By Night are one of the most exciting up-and-coming bands in the world right now. Infact, we were so impressed with this Amsterdam-based Afrobeat collective that we followed them during the build-up to the release of their superb new album ‘Hidden.’ The result? The above documentary, which ranks as one of the most ambitious things BAMM.tv has ever done. You’re going to love it.

Aaaaaand one more thing – if you’re an Amsterdam native (or just happen to be in the city on Saturday November 24) then head to the Melkweg cinema for a big-screen viewing of the documentary! Flyer below, more info here
