*** Radio Citizen celebrates the release of their fourth full length album "Silent Guide"  ***

"A musical trip effortlessly guiding you through dark and light atmospheres, Krautrock groove loops, furious free-jazz solos, between Captain-Future-synths, vigorous drums, hushed Rhodes and powerful horn sections.

One can only be very excited about the first live performance of this live recorded Entrückungsmusik, music that carries you away."

(Martin Pfnür, Süddeutsche Zeitung)

Radio Citizen was founded in Berlin early this century by composer, musician and producer Niko Schabel.

After Will Holland aka Quantic wooed the californian label Ubiquity with a demo, it released 2006 the first album "Berlin Serengeti". A wild mixture made out of dub, hiphop, jazz and world music, featuring the singer Bajka.

Not only Gilles Peterson was stoked, countless series like grey´s anatomy or californication and Hollywood movies licenced this unique sound.

For the third album, Niko Schabel teamed up with danish singer Natalie Greffel and signed to Jazzanova´s label Sonar Kollektiv. "The Night & The City" was the critically acclaimed outcome, followed by a remix album featuring a broad pallete of club sounds.


In November 2017 the latest album, "Silent Guide" was released on Berlin label Sonar Kollektiv.

"The trick, though, is that I can talk about the Cuban groove, the bass sound, the horn arrangements-- those freaking saxes!-- but the reason the music works is that it's never any one thing alone making the song go. The music is details upon details, hung meticulously on memorable songs where jazz can casually wave hello to dub as they pass through a pile of drums together. It leaps dozens of genres in a single bound, digs up all those old sounds I love, fits them together, and erects a temple to pop's melting pot." (Joe Tangari, Pitchfork)
