Planetarium: Josh Dunn and Kohwi

Every Thursday evening, we clear the floor between our speakers and invite folks over for a hi-fi listening session. Our resident selectors and special guests play everything from ambient and electronic music to pre-war blues and psychedelic rock, and often live performances are woven throughout.

At this installment, Planetarium resident Josh Dunn shares the turntables with Berlin’s Kohwi. Kohwi is a DJ and producer whose musical interests swing wide: Brazilian styles like bossa nova and MPB are as likely to influence his work as are electronic flavors like broken beat and IDM. He’s got a collaborative album due out early next year on Ways Inner Pass, and, in the meantime, we highly recommend getting acquainted with his spellbinding mix for Blowing Up the Workshop.

Feel free to bring pillows, blankets, sleeping bags — whatever you like to get comfortable. Also, we’ve found the night works best when everyone keeps their voice down, so please remain silent inside the main speaker area. Outside of that space, be sure to speak quietly enough that only the person you’re talking to can hear you.

We look forward to getting lost in music with you.
