If you had access to 39 gigantic bells and wanted to make an exotica record, how would it sound? If you wanted to make an orchestral opus and only had access to synths, how would that sound? Some answers may be enclosed in this week’s podcast.
As well as experimentation with massive bells, we have more modestly produced music that is no less extraordinary. The latest from Thai trap maestro JUU4E is magnificent, the ever-prolific Chester Watson is back, the less prolific but always mesmeric Part Chimp return, and we have new ones from Penelope Trappes, Georgia, Masayoshi Fujita, Slikback and more.
