Carhartt WIP Radio January 2021: PAN Radio Show



For the first Carhartt WIP Radio show of the new year, we welcome @pan_hq, the multifaceted Berlin label founded in 2008 by DJ, producer and artist Bill Kouligas. Forward-thinking and conceptually fluid since its inception, the label’s output includes music by zeitgeist-defining artists such as German “klang” architect Rashad Becker, British musician and DJ Lee Gamble, his compatriot and former Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey, American experimental music producer Yves Tumor, and Chinese artist and musician Pan Daijing. In recent months, PAN has released ambitious, timely records by the likes of German artist Anne Imhof, Berlin-based, Finnish electronic music duo Amnesia Scanner, Venezuelan multihyphenate Arca, New York-based performance artist Eartheater and UK producer Beatrice Dillon, whose debut album “Workaround” was one of the most stunningly unique, rhythmic experiments in 2020.

Stylistically the output covers experimental drone sounds, sonic collages, futuristic takes on club music, and mesmerizing forward-thinking electronics. In addition, PAN has garnered a reputation for its striking, conceptual artworks that accompany each release, created by Kouligas himself and creatives like German photographer Daniel Sannwald, the cloud-based design and research cluster PWR Studio, and the iconic German photographer Thomas Ruff.

For Carhartt WIP Radio Bill Kouligas put together a show that spans almost two hours. Exploring almost twelve years of PAN music, it unites older tunes by the likes of Afrikan Sciences or Spectre with more recent music by Elysia Crampton or Crystallmess.

As our upcoming RELEVANT PARTIES podcast, released on January 15th, will feature Bill Kouligas speaking to British journalist Chal Ravens about PAN’s history and more, we skipped the typical in-depth interview with our host and simply asked Kouligas five quick questions on how he selected the music for his Carhartt WIP Radio show, PAN’s future plans, when he feels most at peace.
