Some absolute bangers on this week’s podcast, especially the triple threat of Swordman Kitala remixed by Bristol’s K-Lone, alongside vogueing ballroom DJ Delish and the spectacularly named LexLuthorVandross. There’s also neo-classical experiments, London punks, a twisted, beautiful and brilliant cover of Hungry Eyes from Dirty Dancing, and a whole lot more.

#267 – Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Clap! Clap!, Roll The Dice & Glasser, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, JP y Los Marcianos Galácticos

In these strange times, this may be the last ‘proper’ new podcast for some time. We will keep the feed awash with great music, but we’re not 100% sure whether we’ll be able to record new shows in the manner you’ve come accustomed to.

Despite the uncertainty, there’s still a whole lot of new exciting music out there, and – as usual – that’s what we want to focus on. Whether it’s Uruguayan garage, Italian dub techno, or Glaswegian DIY non-jazz, we’ve got the good stuff for you.

If you can, please support bands, artists, record labels, promoters, and venues at this tough time. Without them the world would be a much poorer place.
