#230 – Ajate, Hibushibire, Tomaga, Ben Vince, Padang Food Tigers

#117 – Jeremiah Jae, Austra, YlangYlang, ILL

There are two batches of Canadian synth-pop with Austra and YlangYlang, as well as Indian nu-disco edits from Breakplus, hiphop from Jeremiah Jae, bass much from Kahn & Neek and something indescribable by Èlg Independent Music Podcast
