This show was 15th in the global funk - soul - jazz chart, 16th in the global hip-hop/rap chart and 38th in the global jazz chart.
Afrofuturist mix (sort of). Thanks to @Weird_Jazz for turning me onto the Fire! Orchestra, which kick things off. The opening of Enter! Part One sounds like a lost Dummy-era Portishead track - can't miss.
Next some neo-spacesoul from the very cosmic THEESatisfaction. New album out any day and looks VERY tasty. This morphs (via some David Durrah electronics) into the mighty Can who stir some white boy funk into this early 70s Peel session.
Some apocalyptic commentary and beats lead into the thoroughly amazing, hypnotic afro space jazz monster Evil A.M. by Emanative.
Out the other end via some crazy guitar effects and sped-up beats from Buckethead and into a rap section kicked off by a re-edit of Azealias Banks' Wallace. Some serious shit from Saul Williams is balanced with some stupid (yet awesome) shit from Keith.
Exit via some spiritual stuff from Build An Ark and Fhloston Paradigm before finishing with a barnstorming modern modal classic from the late great Steve Reid.
