#199 – Mountain Man, The Oscillation, The Field, Parly B & Mr Benn, Alter Echo & E3 meet Ishan Sound & Rider Shafique

Our last show before we hit the 200 episode milestone starts with us in Israel and the fuzzy sounds of the brilliant Hynom. From there we move into gorgeous accapella music from the much-missed Mountain Man, globe trotting dubstep, groovy psychedelia, dancehall, abstract electronics and techno.

A stunning selection this week, kicking off with the absolutely spectacular Congolese band KoKoKo!. We also have new music from the legendary Aphex Twin alongside new tunes from some of those he has undoubtedly inspired, such as Karen Gwyer. There’s deconstructed drum n bass from Pessimist, space music from Henge, digital dub from Roger Robinson, a beautiful, long piece from Man Forever, something from down under in the shape of Suburban Cracked Collective, thrash punk from Casual Sect, and the latest stunner from the Gqom Oh! label with TLC Fam.
