Brownswood Bubblers Nine // Trio Tekke
December 14, 2012
“Brownswood Bubblers provides a platform for unsung heroes and emerging talent from the Worldwide underground. The series distils the stream of exciting new artists that have become semi-permanent fixtures in Gilles’ playlists and DJ sets of late to create a suite of perfect bumps.” GP
Gilles comes correct yet again with the ninth instalment in the much-loved Bubblers series. Shining a spotlight on under-the-radar talent the world over, Bubblers returns with a line up as diverse and exciting as the record bag from which they came; a musical barometer to gauge the sound and stars of 2013.
We’re profiling the artists featured on the compilation. Next up: Trio Tekke, whose track ‘InDa (Alt. Version – Excerpt)’ features on the comp.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself please. Who are you, where are you from etc.?
Two of us are Cypriots and one is Anglo-Chilean
How would you describe your music?
Err… Acoustic Rebetiko-infused Roots music
Where do you draw your inspiration?
From all good music and from life experiences. We also draw a lot from humour and irony.
Whom do you count amongst your most significant influences when it comes to production?
I guess we have an ear on the old rebetiko recordings (who knows who “produced” them), for the rawness and directness of the sound. We listen to all sorts of music, so its hard to pinpoint influences, but I guess we take a leaf out of other acoustic acts in the world music scene.
What releases / gigs are out there or coming soon?
We’re working on our 3rd album! Very is exciting indeed. At the moment we’re booking gigs for next year, so watch this space. (or one of the websites below)
Do you have a current DJ mix or any tracks that are available for free download right now that we could point folks to?

What are you going to do after this interview?
Having another cup of tea.
