#288 – DUMA, Marie Davidson & L’Œil Nu, WaqWaq Kingdom, Luke Abbott, Boldy James & Sterling Toles

Japanese artists by way of Kampala, Tel Aviv, and Berlin dominate this week’s show, as DJ Die Soon produced the mesmerising Sekelembele release on Hakuna Kulala, Yurika vocalises the middle eastern funk of Sababa 5 on London’s Batov label and the inimitable WaqWaq Kingdom return with their exceptional new EP on Phantom Limb.

Elsewhere, there’s jazz-infused hiphop from Detroit’s Boldy James and Sterling Toles, the latest from Luke Abbott, a cut from the phenomenal compilation on Morphine Records in aid of Lebanese charities in the wake of the Beirut explosion, the new one from the brilliant Marie Davidson and much more.
