A poly-rhythmic paradise of liquid harmonics to be poured into the ears. jahcoozi's music is as original as the phonetic imagination of their name.

those behind this creative alliance are song-writer /mc/singer/stage-animal sasha perera (london/sri lanka), beat-freak producer robot koch (germany) and the bass-embodying sound-tech fetishist oren gerlitz (tel aviv, israel). both musically and culturally speaking, jahcoozi are a mash up operation who have consistently managed to deliver their very own mongrel style of electronic pop music.

the band have just finished off their 3rd album which will come out on 19th april 2010 on ellen alien's berlin label bpitch control. Bpitch

Think your daily Starbucks run isn’t having an effect on the planet? Think again. In just one year alone, over 58 billion disposable coffee cups are tossed into landfills.

To address the problem of disposable coffee cups, the betacup challenge was founded in 2009 as a way to encourage innovators to brainstorm creative solutions for the environment.

This year, betacup is offering a contest to design the best sustainable coffee cup. The contest is open to the public and the winner will receive a $10,000 prize. Causecast

It's been a full year since Will Oldham was in Rock Island for this encore taping. It was St. Patrick's Day circa 2009. There was a parade happening nearby, with all kinds of non-Irish folk wearing green hats covered with sparkly glitter and shamrocks. It was relatively warm, under a sunny sky and we had burritos and specially ordered coffees and teas waiting for the Bonnie Prince Billy and his band. Oldham had been here about three years prior to this visit and to this day, we are still eternally grateful for his generosity and the kind words he's spoken to others about what Daytrotter is. He was here and gave us a shot when we were nothing and we couldn't be more honored than to have had this modern master as a repeat offender.
