Melting Pot

Can’t believe it’s been 5 weeks since our last “regular” show on Melting Pot, what with the Fundraiser and a couple of special shows, including the tribute to Gil Scott-Heron. I’ve had a lot of new music built up over the last couple months and finally I’ve been able to bring it all out. New music from Seun Kuti, Black Lips, Blueprint, Vieux Farka Toure, Space Invadas feat. Steve Spacek, The Sandwitches, Shabaaz Palaces, The Ladybug Transistor and the Pepper Pots. Also some classic material from Swervedriver (…might be a giveaway soon!), Love from the still unreleased Black Beauty and recently unearthed music from Father’s Children. Enjoy the show!
