We strongly recommend to listen back to six hours of music dedicated by London NTS Radio to the Made To Measure series by Crammed Discs !
Crammed’s legendary Made To Measure series is being reactivated, with the release of new albums and remastered vinyl reissues of several classics. Inaugurated in 1984, it set out to chart a map of some of the most interesting instrumental music of the era. Thirty-five albums came out during the series’ first decade, harbouring a great variety of inventive musical adventures which often weaved aspects of neoclassical/chamber music, ambient, electronica, minimalism, experimental avant-rock, soundscape creation & more.
Artists featured in the series initial run included Hector Zazou, John Lurie (with his soundtracks for Jim Jarmusch's "Stranger Than Paradise" and "Down By Law"), Fred Frith, Arto Lindsay, Zelwer, Steven Brown, Peter Principle, David Cunningham, Benjamin Lew, Daniel Schell, Aksak Maboul, Minimal Compact and more.
Tune into the NTS program now with guest mixes by Yasuaki Shimizu, Matt Werth from RVNG Intl., Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Christina Vantzou & John Also Bennett, Marc Hollander and Stubbleman. Find the link on Crammed Discs Instagram page.
