Disc jockey duo Many Hands (Berlin/UK) have published their playlist for 'Basement Soul' episode 46. Scientific Sound Asia is the Asian electronic music station for expatriates and locals in the region and internationally.

Many Hands is the intellectual property of musically absorbed wide-ranging DJ's Jona J & Kava. Jona real name Jona Jefferies was born in Barcelona and raised in both Spain and the UK, starting out as a disc jockey in the flourishing free party and rave scene in the Southwest of England in the early nineties. After relocating to Ibiza he was enchanted by its Balearic sound and hedonistic style and Jona has frequented the island since then, both as a raver and disc jockey.

After his stint in Ibiza Jona headed over to Bass city, Bristol, being framed by its inner-city frame of mind and Sound System Culture and spent a number of years there honing his art. Jona is a free soul and after being well received in Berlin's growing international musical ensemble and performing at a good spread of venues over the urban sprawl of Berlin he headed back to the United Kingdom, earlier in 2020.

Jona's release ‘Nocturnal’, a collective effort with an old buddy, namely, Stardelta Mastering’s Lewis Hopkin as 'Sapience' for Tom Middleton's 'Sound Of The Cosmos' record label gained notoriety and radio plays by renowned DJs' such as Gilles Peterson, Mala & Laurent Garnier.

Originally raised as a Kiwi, Kava has resided in his new home Berlin for over 10 years. Kavas' musical introduction started on a journey through the melodious Wellington music scene repeatedly doused to frequent injections of Soul, Bashment, Hip Hop, Disco, House, Techno and Drum n Bass. Kava evolved in New Zealand selling vinyl records to the masses of New Zealand and had a good share of radio shows on many radio stations.

After migrating to Berlin, Kava, from the beginning was a resident for a now-defunct monthly radio show with Rodi Kirk of Scratch 22 fame for a considerable time called Float Some and Jet Some on the now extinct Berlin Community Radio as well as performing his art at a good number of venues across the German capital.

Jona and Kava through a close ally met up close by OYE Records in Berlin and the pair immediately knew they possessed a musical pairing and that they had a fusion. This led to Many Hands, an eclectic dance, defrag, and alleviating music session, in a basement (Hence Basement Soul), in the heart of Berlin.

Jona J & Kava perform across the rhythmic and harmonic cultural spectrum. Disco, Soul, Latin and Afrobeat shares hips with MPCs and Drum Machines, Jamaicans in New York, West Africans with Synthesizers and funky Euro-freaks. Sometimes quirky, sometimes bashy, but always for the dancers.

Many Hands are record nerds and music investigators. 80s kids with a solid nocturnal adventuring education, gravitating towards dark basements with heavy sound systems. It's Basement Soul and we're all in this together.

Listen live this Friday 28th of January 2022 8 to 10 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and re-airing Tuesday 8 to 10 AM (ICT).
