They talk about the foundation of Ninja Tune, the role of the label in the 21st century. The role of sub labels (including Big Dada, and Technicolor), their relationship with Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder records, and play a lot of great music.

The third Independent Music Podcast starts off a little more mellow than the first two, with soul, folk and ambient tracks opening the longest one yet.

There’s still plenty to hurt your ears though, with the usual mix of electronics, noise, rock, pop and all the rest from another interesting batch of independent releases
