This month the Summer holidays have kicked in, meaning I’ve arrived home most nights to more than the usual houseful of kids and school friends, filling the place with chaos and laughter. Then next week we fly to Iran, where hospitality is a fine art and an expected pleasure whenever you knock on someone’s door or your own doorbell is ding-donged. So this month I thought I’d fill your ears with the sound of what happens when someone new is welcomed along to proceedings – a new band, another voice, a remixer, someone who changes the dynamic and makes that record and their host somehow different. I’ve tried to steer clear of the usual hip-hop guest emcees, or the standard plethora of featured R’n’B vocalists or house remixers and find more interesting pairings, from different times or backgrounds. So take the door off the latch, put the kettle on and hopefully - much like the writers and artists here - you’ll be happy some strangers came a-knockin’ and soon became friends
