Not How When! has been running for 8 years in Cork city. It is a monthly specialist night where Sonny Emerald, Conor Flukes Fenlon and Jean-Luc Razza select the very best of music from the vaults of boogie,vhouse, jazz-funk, disco, balearic, tropical and more. Anything goes really but there has to be a thread through the night as well so that it all makes sense.

Not How When!s very special guest for Jazz weekend in Cork, Saturday October 29 th is Red Light Records and Music from Memory boss Tako Reyenga. To mark its new Selectors festival and mix series, Dekmantel has produced a short documentary about Amsterdam’s Red Light Radio and Red Light Records. In recent years the Dutch government has tried to reclaim Amsterdam’s red-light district, also the oldest part of town, by encouraging local businesses to open up in former brothel properties. After Orpheo De Jong setup the radio station in a red light window, diggers Tako Reyenga and Abel Nagengast turned a vacant spot in the same building into Red Light Records. This record shop is a diggers dream with outstanding music for sale that you simply do not see in other shops. The film examines how this joint enterprise has become one of the city’s most important creative hubs.
Music From memory:
Tako also runs the amazing Music from Memory label with Abel Nagengast and Jamie Tiller. As anybody who shops in our mighty local record store Plug’d knows, this label has been churning out some super releases for the past few years. Gigi Masin, Michal Turtle, Leon Lowman, The System, Gaussian Curve, the list goes on and on….. Since set up in 2013 their focus has been on compiling music that they believe deserves a wider audience than it received at the time of its release or maybe has never been heard. Sometimes it has been unreleased material which has remained only in the archives of the musicians who made it.
