Todays show sees us take a break from rap to bring you some of the more experimental sounds that we have been listening to of late. The new Burial EP is, thankfully, incredible, and we have tracks from Julia Holter, Scuba and The Host in anticipation of their respective new releases. Thanks for listening and enjoy the change in vibe.

There is little doubt that the internet now plays a pivotal role in the careers of new artists by providing a transnational, virtual platform that previous generations could only have dreamt of.

To commemorate what would have been his 50th birthday, two men by the name of Jordyn Bonds and Ryan Walsh have collected material for and created this website; an archive of readings, writings and interviews from DFW. I always find it so inexplicably sad that someone that seemed so tender and aware of the world, and human life, could no longer cope with his own Terrible Master. The mind is a a...

So, after the love has gone, and the Valentines jams have been (just ever so slightly) put back on the shelf for another year, it’s time to get back into it. This week is a real mixed back of Rap, R&B, House and lots of other goodness in between. Black Hippy and A$AP are seriously putting in work; re-igniting a widespread love for new and exciting rap that I haven’t seen for a...

Dear Channel 4, I am writing to you with the hope that you will stop ruining my life. While your obsession with my ethnicity is flattering, it has become somewhat apparent to me that you might have gotten the wrong end of the stick.
