#282 – Bo Ningen, Tomaga, Deafkids & Petbrick, Effluvium, Wiley

Astounding posthumous work on this show, firstly from the tragically recently departed Jake Dunwoody, whose Effluvium project produced an utter masterpiece in Vera earlier this year. This record – a collaboration with Moonworshipper co-founder Blood Tower – is another blinder. We also have Sun Ra Arkestra putting out their first release in 20 years, and their version of Sonny’s Seductive Fantasy is utterly exquisite.

Elsewhere we have bouncy sounds from Turkey’s Serkan Eles, grime legend Wiley, the blinding collaboration between Deafkids and Petbrick and loads more.
