As a radio passionate from the early 00s, this sentence has often sounded weird, but sacred to me.

From FM to online radio

Rise of the podcasts

While Benoit Curdy and Michael from the UZIC crew published their first tech podcast (Niptech) in 2009, I became a podcaster of my own only much later: after Michael’s initiative, Nip$ales podcast went live in 2014 and, at the same time, Nipconf conference, both ending up in 2017 (the podcast after 60 episodes, the conference after 3 venues) ; Nipmédite, the French-speaking podcast about Mindfulness, took place in 2016 ; Airccelerate podcast hosts since 2017 a monthly entrepreneur interview thanks to the support of Jérémie Wagner ; last, but not least, Nipcraft tastes Craft beers from all over the world since last year and provides experience based clues about brewing, or selling beers.

Meanwhile, online platforms raised as well: from Facebook (2004), YouTube (2005), Spotify (2006) or Soundcloud (2007), to the most recent ones such as Musical.ly (2014), Anchor (2015) or TikTok (2016).

Back to audio experiments

Welcome to the 2. live act of the techno artist SickSpud, as it is an exclusive music podcast of Odiolab.

Click on the above-mentioned episode of Odiolab and you will hear the techno live-act performed by the Swiss artist SickSpud. This exclusive session was broadcasted in premiere on 22. May 2020 to celebrate the end of containment in Europe… or at least the very beginning of the end (?!)

By the way, do you remember Spud ? The jerk from the memorable film Trainspotting released in 1996. He actually inspired the artist SickSpud in more than a way: he started as a DJ in the early 2000’s, playing his pumping music in the most alternative clubs of Switzerland at that time (i.e. Love Zoo or Markthalle). By then, he has been always more involved in studio creation.

Looking for artists, not stars

We will keep up with the good vibes.
