Free Lab Radio This Week: Guest Producer IsaGT (#2)

There are many ways to be an eccentric. Previous Free Lab Radio guest DJ, IsaGT is continually exploring this sacred arena of freedoms and flexing her creative muscles. Her slightly off vocals, raw features, her vibrant and varied style all speak of GT's Colombian background, East London’s electronic music scene and her influences such as Cumbia, house, Baltimore, Champeta, Baile funk, Kuduro.

For the 2nd time singer and producer IsaGT guest DJs on Free Lab Radio. Bringing together tracks which act as windows to different places - cities, the club, travels and distant locales - IsaGT's Columbian roots and base in London come to the fore in this mix.

Isa considers her work Latin music. In this capacity she has performed guest vocals for and co-production with musicians such as: Toy Selectah, Joao Brasil, Dutch Rhythm Combo, Crookers and toured with M.I.A. several festivals shows. However there's an experimental side to her work that defies genre and allows her to straddle the whatever cliches it is we expect of Latin as a genre, and music that boldly starts out by being free of all expectation. 

Her website states:
With a large audience open to Latin music (and growing) but only a small number of labels and outlets available to put out this new generation of Latin music, Isa started her own label- Etoro. One year in Isa has released her own 5-track ep, alongside 6 other releases of original music and remixes in the form of a compilation and Eps by three Latin American artists.

Isa continues connecting with new forms of Latin music released on Etoro label, and collaborates on radio playlists regularly as a presenter on Pulse radio, and occasionally as a guest on Monocle, and the BBC.
 Broadcasts Saturday 7th February 2015, repeats Thursday 2am on 104.4FM, listen on air in London, on the radio player online.
