We go in hard this week, with the consistently dancefloor filling Otim Alpha terrorising us with his high BPM electro Acholi sounds. There are let-ups sprinkled across the pod, with the exquisite new Elena Setien record on Thrill Jockey, and spiritual jazz from Irreversible Entanglements.
Mostly though, we’re going uptempo, with a cracker from Rose Bonica, Gorge sounds from Adam Ondo Martenot, and Niger hip hop from Mamaki Boys, proving massive highlights on the pod.
