Guest show: Spooky-J (Nihiloxica, Spooky Shit, Hot in da Club)

Spooky-J is one-sixth of the mesmerisingly excellent Nihiloxica, whose first LP is coming out in June on Crammed Discs. He is also one-third of the extraordinary fast beats label Spooky Shit and the unrelenting synth dualling trio Hot in da Club.

For this special additional show to keep you occupied in these crazy times, he’s pulled together some outstanding sounds, ranging from raiding French cassette labels, to Italian library music and Greek synthpop, not forgetting to put in some unreleased Spooky-J sounds.

Enjoy this, it’s special.
