Gregory Porterr smashes up the show right from the off with his incredible track '1960 What?'. and quite frankly soul/jazz just doesn't get much better. Normally we'd shy away from playing a 12.5 minute track in the show as it would take up too much space but this track has to be heard in it's entirety, pity it's not longer. Hip Hop with a twist was then the order of the day with the 'Run Shit' remix from the new Paul White - Rapping With Paul White remix album, remixed by the man himself. More quirky hip hop followed from Stan Smith and 'Disco Technic' another killer from the Boogie Vol. 2 compilation on Tokyo Dawn. Onra & Quetz then went back to the old school with a couple of lovingly crafted soulful  beats from their new Tribute album.

Now we're not usually bothered by new artists trying to sound like the original greats as they so often produce sub standard imitiations but Nick Waterhouse is doing a fine job sounding like he was one of the original R&B greats, watch him blow up next year we reckon. The uncompromising bluesy, country tones and lyrics of Purity Supreme then commanded the airwaves before Loka went all undefinable on the show with 'The Tower' from their forthcoming and equally undefinable Ninja Tune album.

A quick fire selection of some of the more interesting beats around were then the order of the day with new Planet Mu signing Keep Shelly in Athens getting the ball rolling with the chirpiests single from their new EP before Teebs came in with some great new dreamy beats from his new Brainfeeder which showcases a welcome broadening of his sonic palette and marked progression. Mux Mool then upped the tension  but kept the melody before Fulgeance dropped a taster of his new album on MPM. We then dropped another taster of the Julien Dyne album before Darling Farah hit the show with some great spacious, percussively alluring beats from his new Civil Music offering. The more avant garde jazzy vibes of Jac Berrocal, David Fenech and Ghedalia Tazart then helped the show drift off into the ether for another week.
