Bookended by sublime hiphop, this episode of the Independent Music Podcast takes us on a contemplative journey across the genres. From Portuguese pianist Tiago Sousa’s exquisite new modern classical on Discrepant to Livingdog’s tentative spatial folk sounds, there’s a lot to sit back and settle in to.
But we do also have a few tastes of experimental dance floor action too, not least Egyptian producer ZULI’s pneumatic techno on Lee Gamble’s UIQ label and the new record on Rocket Recordings from Goat-affiliated group DJINN.
