Mutamassik - After This Podcast

11pm Saturday - a special one hour mix "After This" by Mutamassik, made on 2 turntables, a CD walkman for original tracks, and a broken mixer. Featuring tracks from the upcoming 2012, vinyl-only release "Rekkez" on ini.itu records.

Here are her views:
"After revolutions, what do you put in place?
Destruction is easy.  Construction is a b**ch.
Also, 1st world protests--*****--if you are not willing to step
down your standard of living, there can be no revolution.  Period."
"I completely lost the illusion that metropolis like New York, London and
Tokyo are the ultimate hubs of activity, power points on maps, the
epicenters of life.  The irony and truth is that their very breath depends
on an enormous, rhizomatic, artificial life-support system that trucks,
ships, flies in provisions from all kinds of unfashionable places to
sustain it's millions.  A city cannot produce enough food for even a
fraction of its population.  If people do not eat, they die..."

Wishik--"your face".  My mother sings an old Egyptian song, "Min ellak
teskoun fe Haretna", the words of which were intended as a love song, but
double paradoxically well as a resistance poem:  
"How dare you come and live in our street
You are occupying us and you're cramping our style
We don't have any more comfort.
Find a solution for our situation,
Otherwise leave this place
And go somewhere else."
