#339 – Otim Alpha, Elena Setien, Rose Bonica, Irreversible Entanglements, Galen Tipton, Mildred Maude

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.
