Influential online radio station and arts platform OpenLab announces a weekly show from The Black Madonna – We Still Believe. Broadcasting every Friday at 10pm CET from July 12th, the expertly curated headline show will mark the official start to the weekend amongst the station’s wider evening program.

One of the world’s most exciting turntablists, The Black Madonna (real name Marea Stamper), is a famously eclectic selector who brings a wide perspective to dance music; blending, techno, disco, house and plenty in between with deep knowledge and unbridled passion.

The Black Madonna’s new one hour radio show for comes off the back of a successful run of hosting BBC shows, including a year long residency at Radio 1 and cover shows for the legendary Gilles Peterson, Pete Tong and Danny Howard, where Stamper brought her own sound and unique personality to the shows.

The new OpenLab show will focus on the best upfront material, with the tastemaker taking you on a journey into all corners of the freshest electronic sounds.

This latest show comes alongside carefully curated music programming, that includes regular shows from the likes of DJ Seinfeld with Young Ethics, B-Traits’ Paciphonic, Fink’s The Alternative and label specials from the likes of Ninja Tune and Stones Throw.

OpenLab’s mission is to offer music programming that makes sense and augments the mood at any time of day. It offers infinite sounds, scenes and styles with a real sense of cohesion and explores ambient, chill-out, techno, IDM, experimental, nu soul, indie electronica, electro-fusion and much more.

Quote I LOVE radio. In fact, I learned to DJ on the air at my college station and all these years later being able to speak to you over the airwaves remains a singularly thrilling experience.

Soooooooo, I am beyond excited to announce the launch of my very own We Still Believe radio show. You’ll hear the latest and greatest discs in dance music and the deepest cuts from the back of the crate all presented by me… and maybe a special guest or two. Listen over the air or online, but whatever you do, don’t turn that dial! x TBM
