After a brief pause, Satellite music series returns to Bar Laika with two events! 

Join us on Thursday, July 28 for a Radio AlHara takeover, in-person at Bar Laika, and online through Radio AlHara (streaming here), with DJ sets by Yousef AnastasFelonious FunkKoba Maru, and Dekalb Works.

Radio AlHara is an online radio station based in Bethlehem, Ramallah, and Amman that was launched by a collective of artists during the pandemic lockdown. The radio streams music, recordings, conversation, and discussions in Arabic, French, and English. Inclusivity is at the core of the platform identity as they actively invite people from the community to submit shows, blurring the line between producer and listener. 

For the second event, on Wednesday, August 24, Bar Laika will host a PTP special with live performances by Anysia Kym and King Vision Ultra, and a DJ set by Sanna.

King Vision Ultra is a project by Manhattan-born and Queens-based DJ, producer, and artist GENG PTP. King Vision Ultra debuted in 2017 after a chain of life events led to their further considering the importance of memory and voice as they relate to remembrance and spirit—while also recalling one’s own archival practices, primarily through cassette tape. Much of King Vision Ultra’s world addresses memory, the archive, self-actualization, and trauma. GENG PTP founded the artist collective Purple Tape Pedigree (PTP). Some of the artists affiliated with PTP are Dreamcrusher, Dis Fig, H31R, Amani, and YATTA. PTP has released music and publications (in physical and digital format), and held a variety of communal gatherings as an initiative toward local actions (i.e. fundraising for those incarcerated and book and coat drives). In 2019, Pitchfork described PTP’s mission as “to annihilate genre boundaries and revel in the brilliant debris.

Anysia Kym is a Bronx-born, Brooklyn-based drummer and music producer who materializes original musical ideas by use of self-produced and arranged compositions, samples, drum sets, or all of the aforementioned. Though she doesn’t consider herself exclusively a hip-hop artist, to know her work is to understand the music that raised her—“[a]side from a heavy percussive element, my production almost always involves sampling. Sampling as an art form has deep roots in Black musical practices, most popularly in hip-hop.” She incorporates notes of blues, funk, breakbeats, and 7/4 time signatures, to name a few technical themes. 

Sanna is a Baghdad-born DJ and curator based in NYC. She is one of the first residents who joined the Lot Radio and has been doing a monthly show there for the past six years. Her show features an eclectic mix of dance and experimental electronic music, as well as music from her Arab origins. In 2019, she founded the music platform 3AFAK with Bergsonist. They’ve released mixes and a music compilation, DJed under the moniker, and hosted many events together. Sanna is the music curator at e-flux and this is the first time she will be DJing at Laika!
