Introducing: THE LAKE – New Radio

August 13, 2014 by Rasmus

We are extremely happy to be part of this new radio project.
Please welcome THE LAKE.

I don’t wish to get in your pants
Instead, I wish to be your pants

If you want to hear Peter Broderick recite these lines of his above; or a Bertolt Brecht hörspiel followed by a conversation with Nils Frahm’s piano. Or Andy Warhol on the phone superceded by Burmese street kids singing from the back of a pick-up truck and the voices of a Haitian voodoo ceremony – then come to The Lake -

Broadcasting from Copenhagen to the world, The Lake is on air 24 hours daily at The new radio platform is initiated and curated by Kasper Vang (artist), Jan Høgh Stricker (radio journalist) together with Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg from the band Efterklang (4AD).

The Lake aims to be the anti-thesis of commercial radio. Its function is to serve as a platform for experimental and inspiring music and sounds, without playlists, boundaries or limitations. The carefully curated library spans all decades of recorded audio, crossing geographical borders, languages and genres.

No one knows what The Lake will play next. Randomized playback will make it a unique experience for listeners who can hear everything from the forgotten and underrated to ground-breaking, rare and new pieces.


Once a week The Lake will break with its usual 24 hour programming to broadcast special audio recorded exclusively for the radio station.

The first of these will happen on August 24th and 25th where The Lake will broadcast live from this year’s edition of the MAD Symposium in Copenhagen. MAD was founded in 2011 by Noma chef René Redzepi and this year’s event is co-curated by Brazilian chef Alex Atala. More than twenty talks by some of the world’s greatest culinary pioneers and thinkers will be aired on unedited. More details on the event will be announced soon.

Also coming soon to The Lake, a series of programs from this year’s Roskilde Festival featuring the likes of Julia Holter, The Necks, Arto Lindsay + Paal Nilssen-Love, Fire! Orchestra, King Ayisoba. A series of mixtapes will also be launched this month. The first, entitled Awful Tape from Osaka, will be aired on August 28th.

Please come join us at The
