Melting Pot

Had a technology plagued but otherwise solid show this Sunday. I’ve spent several hours trying to fix my rather janky recording set-up in order to present the full two hour show. I really shouldn’t complain, virtually all of the music came out perfectly fine and ultimately that’s what’s most important. There’s some brand new stuff from La Sera (fingers-crossed, they should be our guests next week!), remixes of work from Andreya Triana and Bilal (by Tokimonsta and Flying Lotus, respectively), and newish work from Ghostface Killah, Fabienne Del Sol, JayLib and others. The show features a very minor tribute to Bobby Robinson of Enjoy records fame (for a better tribute see Oliver Wang of’s guest podcast here) and a major tribute to Trish Keenan of Broadcast that takes up the last half-hour + of the 2nd Hour. If you just want to hear the tribute mix by itself, I’ve updated my tribute post to Trish to include the set. Next week we’re doing all vinyl with a guest set from Music Man Miles of Breakestra + a performance/interview with La Sera!
