Czeching is a music export project powered by Radio Wave dedicated to help progressive and promising Czech bands on their way to reach European listeners and stages.
Each year an international jury selects one band that gets the opportunity to record and release new EP as well as perform at the biggest European showcase festival Eurosonic Noorderslag. Their recordings are also offered to other radio stations through the EBU Music Exchange. Last year the highest score was chalked up by downtempo duo VR/NOBODY. Radio Wave listeners voted for electronic producer Aid Kid.
In 2016 Czeching became a monthly radio show where the topic of music export is further explored All the 2016 nominees and a special foreign guest, the Iranian-Dutch singer Sevdaliza performed at the Czeching Showcase, where the winners were announced.
The overall winners of Czeching 2016 are electronic producers Himalayan Dalai Lama. Their new EP Space was recorded in Czech Radio’s studio Karlin and released on iTunes, Spotify and as limited edition of cassettes. Radio Wave listeners voted for electronic duo Ba:zel.
