This show was 5th in the global electronica chart and 6th in the global jazz chart.
It took me a while to get into Sun Ra. At first, I hated it to be honest and I guess it's the same for loads of people. But since I got into it, I became more and more fascinated.
This mix features artists influenced by Sun Ra’s music. A journey from Spiritual Jazz to Afrofuturism through Electronica.
I hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed putting it together.
