(AUDIO INTERVIEW + MIX)
Note: although the show is presented in Romanian, the interview with CBL is in English and can be heard starting at minute 2:14 in the podcast.
I came back from Dakini Festival 2019 with new impressions, beautiful memories and some interviews that will be the subjects of the following "Journeys to the Infinite" episodes. Regarding the music, Dakini 3rd edition has proved again to be the best Psy Festival in Romania, the only event that manages to bring here the most important artists of the genre. Year after year, the line-up proposed by the organizers is stellar. Dakiniland consists of three dedicated scenes: Akasha (Chill, Live), Ishtar (Psy-trance) and Molecular (atmospheric techno). Headlining the festival were Gaudi, Deep Forest, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Sync24, Aes Dana, Eat Static, Suduaya, The Spy from Cairo, Ajja, Avalon, Filteria and Captain Hook. The event took place on the Romanian shore of the Black Sea, on Tuzla beach in Constanta. Of course, for me, the experience was a journalistic opportunity, a chance to have direct meetings and recorded conversations with the artists.
We open the Dakini series of interviews with the Swedish duo Carbon Based Lifeforms (CBL). We will find out from Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Vadestrid how they manage to work so well after 28 years of activity, about their hobbies, we will advance an estimated date for the new CBL album, will discover the differences between CBL and SYNC24 (the solo project of Daniel) and other details from the sonic laboratory of one of the most beloved projects in the history of ambient music.
