#206 – Throwing Snow, Káryyn, Free Love, Ecko Bazz, Makaya McCraven

It may feel like we’re playing everything from Uganda’s Hakuna Kulala label, but we’re cherry picking the best music from the uber prolific label. This week it’s the exceptional face off of Kampalans Ecko Bazz and Bigga Yut trading verses over the production of Nihiloxica’s pq.

Elsewhere there’s new music from Throwing Snow’s third LP, two batches of Polish experimentation, synth pop from Free Love’s luxury hits, Finnish pop rock and lots more.
