Radio Citizen is the brainchild of Berlin composer, producer, arranger, and multi-instrumentalist Niko Schabel. The first Radio Citizen album, Berlin Serengeti released on Ubiquity in 2006, featured electronic music that employs multiple organic elements, creating a fierce sonic meld of dub, hip-hop, soul-jazz, funk, and world musics. Schabel played reeds and woodwinds, percussion, piano (including Fender Rhodes), and synth, and produced and mixed the recording. His chief collaborator was the Indian-born, Portugal- and South Africa-raised vocalist Bajka, but the album's selections include a large group of instrumentalists and poet Ursula Rucker. Radio Citizen's second offering, Hope and Despair, was also released by Ubiquity in the fall of 2010. ~ Thom Jurek
