Equiknoxx

#233 – Ohsees, Equiknoxx, Kefaya & Elaha Soroor, Achwghâ Ney Wodei, Laura Cannell & Polly Wright

After a few weeks of studio upheaval, our first episode in our new space is here – and it’s a bit of an abstract one. With fragmented samples of 78rpm records from a French library to Glaswegian dubstep, via violin experiments and Afghan folk music, we have the whole set of what’s good and great in contemporary independent music.
