#72 – 2015 retrospective (best of) part one

The most wonderful time of the year! Gareth and Anthony dig through a fabulous year of music to bring you three episodes of great, perhaps forgotten music that has come out this year. Did you hear the one with the classically trained Egyptian pianist with two drummers? or the Hungarian afrobeat? or the Rastafarian who has a bad memory and speaks to two Danish producers about it? Well get stuck in to the first of our retrospectives
