What a start to 2022! Ten new tracks for you that are extraordinary in their variety and invention. From the opening track from Alex Silva and the enigmatic music of Tony Gallardo, through to a blistering collaboration between Slikback and Giant Swan, which is as good as you’d dare to hope from two of electronic music’s great trailblazers.
Elsewhere, we have sublime Finnish jazz from Koma Saxo and Fire! Orchestra’s Sofia Jernberg, the disco-fused latest from YĪN YĪN, metal from Kurokuma, modern classical, UK funky and more.
