Learn more about our residents and listen back to their latest shows!




Deeply involved in visual world building, Ayla Hibri captures her colourful, textural, and tactile cosmos through photography, drawings and paintings. In the sonic macrocosm, guide signs are spread all along her Scenic Route show, which embodies a journey through the stream of lively memories and sonic dwellings. The warm and eclectic dreamscapes of the Beirut-born, Amman-based jack of all trades will soften your ear canal and veil any form of existence under a melodic bloom. Delicately infused with splashes of percussions creeping from below a creatures’ land, intimate murmurs of poetry, and free floating nebulous rhythms, Ayla’s pensive compositions come close to anyone’s heartbeat.



Alexandra Marr’s mixes defy easy categorization. Exploratory and composed with exceptional sensibility for harmony and ambience, they consistently bring seemingly disparate musical styles into an intimate dialogue. Marr’s trademark is her unique ability to straddle the divide between the uplifting and melancholic, the stripped-down and the embellished, always looking for soulfulness in places where few other might expect to find it.



Ani Phoebe's worlds are many but firmly rooted in a never-ending magnetic groove that leads through streams of nuanced synth-echoing whispers from the past. It's never the same destination when she's on diving duties - whether the Hong-Kong based navigator is dipping deep into ecstatic balearic bubbles, dripping disco saunas, or touching peculiar sides of blazing hip-hop, dub icebergs, and electronic strikes, she knows when to brake and when to break a dancefloor's atmosphere. Impossible to place within a definite space or time, Ani Phoebe's open-eared world will flourish TNP with an irresistible twist of coastal cliff dancing eccentricities.





Charmaine radiates good vibes through her broad smile and any soundsystem. Her mixes are always more soulful than purgatory and range from easy listening to hard-hitting, depending on the setting and the soundsystem. Of course the purgatory simile falls flat when examining Charmaine’s sets; the joyous and colourful atmospheres she shapes have saved many a soul from eternal damnation. Her base of operations is Rotterdam, where she works as a Clone Records employee and as an Operator radio programmer. This constant exposure to music is reflected in the depth of her performances.



Dancing while flipping sides of hot-as-blazing tunes fires up anyone around. With Coco Maria, every radioshow is a carnival on airwaves, whether you’re swaying in your office chair, shaking your butt while chopping carrots or banging the steering wheel of your car on Samba rhythms and tambourine beats. Always with energetic narratives and a one-way ticket to the tropics, Coco Maria can warm up your day even in the breeziest weather. Invoking the sun on various radio stations, she knows the place to all hot-and-sweaty celebrations and the secret to full body experiences of ankle-breaking rarities — are you ready to rock steady?




Daniel Jahn, or sometimes unhappybirthday is the ideal companion for drifting bodiless into rainforests of sensitive depths. He is also a resident at our NTS colleagues and the driving force behind the Hamburg based indie label Bureau B, hiding under a dusty collection of unheard musics and jarring echoes without a trace. Caught into the sheer intensity of dark things we tell each other, Daniel strikes a balance between stasis and dislocation, tinting the environment with midnight melancholia, misty delirium and iridescent visions. His sets reveal exactly what his sonic theatre is about - a play of uncanny wonders and suspenseful oddities. A direct invitation to sinking into a placid shining dark listening reverie, stripped of edge and clarity.



Spinning around in a daze across splinters of crisp new beat, freaky acid breaks, or hard hitting electro explosions, Dazion packs all kinds of influences in his smoothly blended groove boxes. Ready anytime to transform your room into a fluid dancefloor, his weirdly rhythmic, sometimes emotional and relentless picks intertwine under a frisky cosmic soundscape. Rocking the club scene in high demand with his Dazion moniker, Cris Kuhlen counts many of his signature releases on renowned labels such as Safe Trip, Second Circle, and Animals Dancing. Straight outta The Hague, the sounds of Dazion travel at light-speed and move in slow-motion towards an alien utterance that echoes in his radio odyssey.



Extraordinary and hypernormal; Dean High goes above, beyond and outside. The Serbian-Dutchman — who hosts the bi-monthly show ‘Hypernormal radio’ — employs an analytic ear in his productions and selections, in which he manages to strike a perfect balance between consistency and unpredictability. This all results in music that sucks the listeners in, bites their necks and touches them with cold fingers, leaving them in an auditory chokehold fashioned from heavy sub action, tight drum sounds and unexpected grooves. Said programmed rhythm sections are coloured in by unpredictable, cavernous and haunting tonal content which results in an experience which transcends the total sum of its parts.



Deboleena has a clear interest in rhythm, contrast, ratio, dynamics and harmony in both buildings and music. Her approach to her two main interests, music and architecture, can perhaps be explained from her upbringing in which she was exposed to many different sonic and architectural environments. She was raised across three continents while digesting Indian Classical, Jazz, and the golden era of Timbaland productions. These influences lead to picks with unexpected progressions, unpredictable structures and beautiful production and soundscapes. Bluntly put; ‘For the heads’.



Derozan leaves impressively few stones unturned. When he lifts a stone, the musical millipedes lurking beneath them scatter to seek shelter in his music library. The feeling felt by these startled insects is not unlike the delighted confusion created by Derozan on the dancefloor- a fabrication of wonder which is also present in his bi-monthly show, ‘Swallowtail town’. The main difference between his club sets and his radio appearances would be the introspective nature of his show — a quest through imaginative mangroves and along glimmering patches of moss to relieve the mind of the often overwhelming impermanence of the world outside of our imagination.



In her sets, discourse (moniker of Katayoun Arian) seeks to meditate on different sonic lineages and traditions by way of aural storytelling. In 2017, she initiated a musical archival project that focuses on female-identifying musicians and performers from 20th-century Iran. With shows titled ‘Female Vocalists from Iran and Beyond’, she has recontextualised music from Iran and beyond placing an emphasis on the question of what musical archives can do in rethinking our sonic culture. In doing so, she draws connections between different musical traditions, exploring ways in which archives, their meaning, and function can change by way of a different activation and rearrangement.



The bromance behind Duo Penossi is always seen together in their store on the Zeedijk. Their store, Platypus Records, is a walhalla for those looking for the perfect break, loop or record. It’s no wonder that famous beat smiths such as the Alchemist frequent their store. Their TNP show is always centered around a region’s music which they deliver with a uniquely nonchalant flair and are a testament to their broad and deep knowledge. The first reissue on their label Penossi Records, Werk in Uitvoering’s Dosis, contains all elements to their alchemy — novel, funny and allround great.




Elise Kravets’ sets can be described as levees during floods; a refuge which can be very comforting while being surrounded by a hectic and devastating stream. It’s mainly insatiable and curious minds that find comfort in Elise’s sets. However, her sets are exploratory, colorful and escapistic. Elise’s music practice can be linked to her lifelong fascination with pointillism — track per track, dot per dot, the image grows ever clearer. These warm, earthy and cinematic dots are not quite like the pictures she paints in club settings — although her atmospheric sensibilities translate to this setting she prefers hard-hitting 2-step beats of the jungle and d&b variety.




Rarely seen wielding a USB, Fabio Fontanelli lets the processes which deposit records into record bins guide his DJ practice. As such, his DJ sets often included often-overlooked pearls. It is not only the auditory world that fascinates Fabio — it’s the bridge that connects it to the material world which is equally as important to him. This fascination also led to his mix cassette series — the VIAVIA tapes — after which he also named his show. VIAVIA was the name of a boogie project from his hometown Maastricht — a record which perfectly encapsulates the quirky European twists on familiar genres that often find their way into his projects.  



Hailing from America’s sunny side, Father Hickey’s selections ooze sunshine. Perfectly encapsulating the easygoing Venice beach vibes from his hometown Los Angeles, the lightheartedness with which this part time DJ, part time youtube archivist, lighting director and photographer presents his music just feels nice. Light, sun, happy, chill - all keywords for his work in selecting soulful treasures from the overseas record presses. His show name, Big Nice World, and his label’s name, Big Nice, give off the same innocent, soothing and happy vibes as his music.




A face of many musical personas, Jermaine Boasman inherited a versatile background and far-reaching influences in all kinds of musics revealed by his own father. One laptop and a seat was all he needed to make him stand up, hit the buttons and embark into a long and gratifying exploration of electronic music. Now a skillful DJ and bold producer, you can spot him behind club and radio decks under aliases like GENEEVRE and GENE SHEIKAH, dropping self-produced seismic beats of basement hiphop and experimental intricacies.



She knows a place and you can’t say no. Once Giu Nunez invites you somewhere, it cannot be anything but simply a celebration. A sonar for feverish atmospherics and uptempo rides, Giu always has the right directions never lacking in groove guidelines. Be it percussive rhythms that sync with pulses of desire or strings that carry kilometers of sensations, it’s a constantly thrilling and truly absorbing scape, and Giu knows it by heart. Still in doubt? Then what are you waiting for? Come To Brazil!



The DIY-powerhouse that is Good Block has been making waves for a few years now. With their idiosyncratic approach to producing, handling every aspect of the record themselves, it’s hard not to be charmed by the Best Block out of London. The tight drum programming of their own production and the variations in atmospheres surrounding their beats over the years give a good indication of what they play as DJ’s; Expect B-side aesthetics, deep hazy dubs, left-field sounds and crispy synths for both home listening and dance-floors alike.



Trying to reach Gustavo Keno? Then it’s time for a quick ride through the depths of history and music - places where his knowledge can span from the most rarefied (re)discoveries to the most politically and socially bold material ever heard under the discoball. The brainforce behind Ilê Discos and YouTube admin of Juntos Com Certeza, Gustavo splits between what he listens to, what he researches, and what he dances to, bridging gaps between education and entertainment, and marching towards a decolonization of the dancefloor. An active contributor, Gustavo is always to be found on the scene of worldwide collectives and events, such as Selvagem, Urbeck's Festival, Planet Trip, Rinse France, and more. He travels to share, teach and dance, and once in a while, you can catch a glimpse into a body of music that he has now collected under Eu Não Sou Seu Negro every two months and invites you to explore.






Edit-smith and bringer of soul from Seoul, Jaezae (also known as Tucan Discos) is one of those DJ’s that takes you on a musical expedition. His style focuses around hard and groovy bass sounds from the 80s and 90s without ever veering into the doom-driven, instead colouring his mixes with elements from the rich musical traditions found across the globe. This Tucan is unlike the rest of his species a migratory specimen - and very much appreciated worldwide for his positive demeanor and friendly attitude. His show name, ‘Imaginary Friends’, should be taken with a grain of salt - as it seems like he has no need to imagine them.



Turn The World On is Jenst his outlet to record trippy mixes for trippy trips, ranging from low-key to high energy. Turn on, tune in, drop out, drown down, hang low, get low. Get turned on or turn the world on with his arousing turntable talk, Jenst the night away with all Jenst on deck. With Jenst on the decks, since his show started at Red Light Radio, a fun, indie, poppy but hypnotic 2000s atmosphere is often created, consisting of picks that speak to his encyclopedic knowledge of music. His knowledge is never expressed snobbily; it is always a joyful opportunity for him to share.



John Agesilas is a guru in several disciplines — positivity, dancing, and all things house music. The man with the infectious smile has had a decades long career — working with Donna Summer and Earth, Wind & Fire as a dancer and co-producing with Kerri Chandler and Atjazz. John is also a formative force for Night Owls, Djoon and Summer Dance Forever. Luckily for us, John is far from greedy with his acquired knowledge and is often found educating people in house culture, dance and life in general. His didactic attitude can be summed up in one of his often said nuggets of wisdom: “Always be a student of life”.



Joss & Flo Selecting are selectors in the original meaning of the word. The word derives from the member of the Jamaican soundsystem who chose the riddims on which the DJ spat lyrics. Within the realm of the original ‘selectors’ they operate, playing various styles of reggae — dub, lover’s rock, roots and rocksteady. While their preferred riddims are as strong and steady as rock, their favorite lyrics can be uplifting, sweet and positive. The riddims and vocals are the vehicle — the goal is good vibes and love.



Kimchi Radio never settles for one menu. Rather than being stuck on certain ingredients, our kimchi-enthusiast stirs and shakes a myriad of organic sounds and fresh melodies. His eclectic musical plates are fairly full-flavoured. From seasoned jazz-funk, spicy downtempo, and bitter indie pop to sour folk, salty breaks, and sweet synth-pop, Kimchi’s taste is as diverse as it can get. Soundtracking your lust and sorrow, his monthly picks are slowly cooked and served in a matter of seconds. His blends boil with plot abundance — funky grooves merge with symphonic rock, and Algerian folk tunes throw the main course dinner chairs aside. Kimchi Radio has no traditional recipe, but an unexpected fusion of goodies.


Hummingbird songs in frosty mornings, church choirs and bells ringing, euphoric vocals, crying guitars, and swelling synths — that’s what Kleingeld’s dreams are made of. Brimming over with gloomy echoes and intricate percussion, her candle illuminated shows can induce anyone into a posthypnotic amnesia. DJ by day, didgeridoo by night, the empress of reverb plays with haunted airwaves embodied by her listeners’ breaths — all in a strange but fun parade, destination unknown, fragile, and uncertain sonic fields. Feeling uneasy or confused? Just relax, Kleingeld whispers, “I will count sheep for you, rest easy now. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven — give in… eight, nine, ten….”




Not only an emblematic radio veteran, but also a pioneering digger, Loma Doom traverses aural dimensions and picks arcane formulas for her sonic treatments. Curiosity is what straddles her artistic practice and sonic experiences. In the dungeon of her bi-monthly show, Helter Skelter, she moves in a non-linear manner around dubby rhythmic patterns and rich textured arrangements, and seeks to explore the darkest corners of electronic experimentalism. Guided by instinct, Loma is not afraid to operate with a surgical precision around psychedelic and hardcore punk, freak folk, ritualistic percussions and howls, and spellbinding drones. Stitching together radio and archives as her main media, her approach revolves around various notions of listening and how listening is a call to action. Apart from being a sonic surgeon, Femke is also an active artistic researcher, curator and educator of contemporary arts.




What’s an architect to do better than building his own Salon de Musique? Collecting, DJing and architecting in and around Marseille, Marwan picks and flips listening material for all kinds of atmospheres and temperatures. There’s certainly not a maximum of square meters when it comes to his taste - once you’re in, the salon keeper will walk you through so many disparate musical styles and shades that are not without recalling a state of being breezy, easy and free. Marwan’s house rules are simple: step into his highly intimate, dreamy gestalt, and take a seat inside what’s soft and comfortable for the ear. Get ready for that pillow-listening.




A sonic time-traveller and fantasy architect, Norm collects relics and puts them together in Faking Jazz Together. He builds up radiant and delicate worlds in which harmony and emotion prevail over anything else. Diffracted into multiple histories and genres, Norm’s music recreates an ambiance of hazy fusion jazz, hypnotizing psychedelic rock & pop, mellow bossa, and many other rhythmic boogies. Each show is a process of becoming for Norm — an opportunity to refresh and augment his inspiration which has been paved on a strong foundation represented by Connan Mockasin’s psychedelia. Once you tune in, you slip down in a mellifluous and vivid dream.




Suddenly the circle starts moving in a slipstream of sounds and words, a whole rhythmic story gets going. She collects and keeps, she cuts and blends, an all kinds explorer and sound archeologist, Laura OdL entrenches herself in assemblages of abstracted realities with field recordings, analogue tape machines, and other DIY instruments. To all that’s rarefied and clandestine, Laura opens a window into the unexposed craft of artists and collectives and frames their compositions in a playful and bizarre collage steering. When she’s not a noise receptor, she’s a groove effector on dancefloors. Outside the field, inside the booth, Laura becomes Ondula and her sonic patches become even more experimentally intricate, this time swirling under disco balls of Sameheads, Braille Satellite, Polyhymnia, and more. But no matter where she is, always when en route, she takes out and brings about peculiar cut-ups and arrangements which can only enlarge and echo her trimonthly Animal Circle. 






Timeless music can never flourish anywhere and no one can argue against Robob here. Delivering an instant appreciation for soulful delights, wizardry synths, disco heatwaves, sometimes caught in an electronic vortex, Robob is the one you want to soundtrack your road trips. Without overcommitting to any specific genre or mood, he knows how to carry the momentum of his episodes forward. Undoubtedly, Anthems Are Forever and a little bit of digging Robob’s musical archives and collaged sensibilities will most likely strike as a reminder. Are you the kind who easily forgets? Robob has you covered!



Roelien abandons conventional soundworlds and transcends time and space with a keen ear for slow electronic tripped-out oddities. Her bountiful musical output aligns with strong commitment to the creation of immersive atmospherics in which the listening experience is parsed into ecstatic fragments. Ready to blast off? Rhythmic pulses, powerful beats and mutant transitions are likely to wear down less venturous listeners. Roelien’s spacecraft orbits around bouncing tracks and floats over obscure dubby sounds from beneath. Her sets are here to ooze from an electrifying dusk, dissolve the territory and abolish any protocols. So… let’s lift off!




Saar & Claar share similarly sounding nicknames and similarly sounding music. Their journey starts in Milan, where they met in art school and bonded over a shared interest in music — a shared passion which only seems to have intensified over the subsequent 8 years. They blend sounds from genres like Belgian New Wave, IDM and New Age — walking the tightrope between listening music and dancing music. This philosophy was also present in the ‘chill out’ rooms in 90s clubs which have since disappeared. They revive and expand this chill-out culture, shaped by the likes of Mixmaster Morris and the KLF, with their bi-monthly show called ‘Chill-out Room’.



Satoshi Yamamura who ran the music blog Okonkole Y Trompa, unearths hardly known and wonderfully bizarre pieces. Constantly packing and unpacking unfamiliar artists and dusty grooves nearly lost to the world, Satoshi’s collection is stored somewhere behind the portcullis of a fortified castle. Once it slides down, you are entrapped in an abstract sonic space as vast as the universe — an oasis of rare releases or a haunted translation of his inner monologue into mystical arrangements. Probably a genre-agnostic, Satoshi is not afraid to journey through the unknown and ecstatic realms of glacial new wave, ghostly synth-pop, fragile ambient, psychedelic jazz fusion, and many other punchy frequencies. His garden of unearthly rhythms is an entangled landscape: you won’t know how you got there, but it was worth it.



As busy as two bees, Camille Maria and Pietro Ferrari are in a constant mood for creation and growth. Creators of ambitious projects, the body-twisting duo is the sonic force behind Siena Ovest Worldwide and rulers of the Dusty Cabinets series. Camille and Pietro have been at it for 10 years and have successfully taken the western part of Siena, their hometown, to the world. Their ‘Dusty Cabinets’ events series hosts a diffusion of dub-related artists, such as Donna Leake and John T. Gast, whose woofer-wizardry undoubtedly disperses the dust from atop the cabinets into the air. The same dust-distributing-dub can be heard on their Radio TNP show.



Munich based DJ Sophie Pschorr works at the internationally revered institute Public Possession — a record label and store. She deals with synthesizer sounds from current and past times — often including echoing vocals, gritty instruments and originating in German musical history. She constantly moves between contrasts and finds her own connections, which takes her past a myriad of atmospheres of the new wave, dub, EBM and experimental variety. She’s a resident at Radio 80000 and at Radio Tempo Não Pára. With her series for Radio Tempo Não Pára, “Stratus”, she focuses more on softer and calmer sounds.




Tember’s tempestuous timbres, which he slings into the aether through his TNP-show ‘Unlikely Animal Friends’ and ‘Club Hits Differently’, can be referred to as postmodern. The visual language in the world of Tember is delightfully campy and drenched in irony. The combination of songs he reproduces could be classified as ‘random’ compared to (past) club standards. There is definite philosophy and method behind the madness, however; Tember’s approach is purposefully anti-elitist and deliberately unorthodox. Without friction, there’s no shine — without experimentation, there is no innovation.



Intriguing dancer, first-class clubber, and part of our family since the very beginning, Tosh stands tall in both music and the real world. He can reach the highest altitudes with his musical taste and access any dimension of sonic serenity through fictive and vivid sounds. Tosh’s Sonic Fiction shows are filled with much coveted unknown jams that revolve around a multivalent exploration of what music across genres and eras can bring in terms of calmth, texture and warmth. It’s true, the dancefloor is his second home, but in his shows, you’ll only encounter an occasional kick drum that will enter your ear canal.



Blending a contagious fever of electro bleeps and dub zappers with a strong spirited presence behind decks and an erratic approach to mixing it, DYKEHAUS aka Emme and DJ Shahmaran aka Arjîn advance together in an everlasting reckless change. Moving frenetically at high speeds around syncopated rhythms of cheeky ghetto breakers, the duo enters a boundless evolutionary trajectory in which things flicker and worlds collide. Turn on your pulsometer and enter the void of Transience — you’ll learn how to accept and navigate growth.





Being well-versed in all things dubby, Vandorta knows how to enchant the bass cult like no other. Having played at the TNP-event Durma Dans Et solidified this notion. Lighting the dancefloor on fire by suddenly dropping the tempo down at peak time - playing monstrous dub - ensured one thing; Vandorta mastered the concept of soundsystem energy. Her palette is untethered by genres but feels consistent, spanning from Rocksteady and Funk to Post-Punk and Mutant Disco - a holistic approach which was likely shaled by her time behind the counter of the record store Sounds of the Universe - a record store which is nothing short of an institute to her native London and beyond.



Veering off into the unknown, Vuur combines minimal electronics with deeply hypnotic clicky techno, gradually immersive ambient, blitz psychy breakers and gauzy downtempo. Always involved in discovering new sonics and making new friends, Vuur won’t navigate the synthetic land of intergalactic electronic miniatures alone. Among the co-pilots of his flights there is a mix of talented friends, established and upcoming artists. Following their traces of melodic space dust, Vuur builds up, co-evolves and expands on the brain-melting, head-scratching at times, or dream-laced structures of dronesque forces and rhythmic ambiances.




Having released on the Ugandan Hakuna Kalula imprint is an accolade that speaks volumes of this upcoming, boundary shattering artist. Untethered by any location or notions of nationality, his music can be described as combining beautifully distorted sounds with the modern African body music typical of the Kampala scene, WULFFLUW XCIV seeks to go further - to be totally indescribable, while simultaneously encompassing everything - like the darkest black; containing all colours, but also the colour of the void.
