This week’s show features: folk-soul and Charles Stepney-inspired arrangements (The Stepkids); heavy drum breaks and searing strings (Nino Nardini); Saadiq+Spacek+KWest bringing that 60’s/70’s swaggering soul heat; and big and bashy soundsystem killers (Hudson Mohawke, Mr Williamz, YT, Johnny Osbourne, Major Lazer). Zomby offers up crystalline chords, a booty-shaking creeping bassline and skullsnap snares on ‘Tarantula’ – one for those that know!; there's also some twisted marching South African funk (Mzo Bullet); crazy riotous Baile Funk (Cinidho & Daco, Sanjay Pitbull, Crookers) and Kuduro mashups (Buraka Som Sistema).
We connect jungle to jazz: Serum's sub-destroying version of Papa Lover and heavyweight dread-dub fire (Dub Phizix+Fox) into Marky's bass heavy sunshine-drenched coastal drive; a little samba shakedown, a couple of bona-fide Brazilian classics and a MachineDrum/Jodeci soundclash and some Balkan beats to finish.
