#161 – Four Tet, Happy Meals, Danny T & Tradesman, Awate

A mellow opening of synth soundtrack music and the stunning new one from Four Tet belies the fun stuff beneath – from Yorkshire dancehall sounds of Danny T & Tradesman to Glaswegian synth pop with Happy Meals. We also have jazz, dark pop, garage fun, hip hop, soul and field recording of funeral ceremonies from Bali.
