6 September 2019 at 9am

ep.11 Public Radio: Beatie Wolfe interviews Ale Cohen, director of dublab, about twenty years dedicated to the growth of music, arts and culture. Listen to this dublab radio show that takes you from Recoleta to dublab HQ via a smashed up record.

Orange Juice for the Ears with “musical weirdo and visionary” (Vice) Beatie Wolfe explores the power of music across Space, Science, Art, Health, Film & Technology by talking to the leading luminaries in each field from Nobel Prize winners to multi-platinum producers and hearing the music that has most impacted them, their “Orange Juice for the Ears”. Beatie Wolfe is an artist who has beamed her music into space, been appointed a UN Women role model for innovation and held an acclaimed solo exhibition at the V&A Museum.

Alejandro Cohen’s Orange Juice for the Ears

  • First song that imprinted? “0303456” by Raffaella Carrà

  • First album that shaped who you are? Love and Rockets by Love and Rockets - track played “I Feel Speed”

  • The music you would send into Space? “Money, Money” from the 1972 film version of Cabaret

  • The song you would have at your memorial? “Wheel of the Law” by Kendra Smith

  • The album you would pass onto your kids? La Conferencia Secreta del Toto's Bar by Los Shakers - track played “Mas Largo Que El Ciruela”


The show opens with “This is How We Walk on the Moon” by Arthur Russell, which reminds Beatie Wolfe of Ale because of his band's performance at an Arthur Russell tribute night and because it was the reference track for a Beatie Wolfe x Laraaji collab track to commemorate dublab's 20th.
