The silkily-voiced Garzon-Montano toured with Lenny Kravitz last year, and Crawl is only one of a slew of songs I've been hitting rewind to from his debut album. Noname has dropped one of the most beautifully subtle soul albums of 2016, but it's only now I've found the the time for a proper listen. Manc hip hop from longtime pal Dubbul O hits hard and pays tribute to Gang Starr with its title. Paul White's beat on Lion's Den is dreamy. Synths abound from Aim, Survive, Mogwai and Onyeabor. Lord Echo provides this episode's title and Jungle Fire are back with their second album, Jambu. Piano soul from Sampha and Joseph Scaturro, crazy funk from Thundercat and pure jump-up South American rhythm from Quantic and Nidia. The theme from one of my favourite films, bass from the Cosmic Bridge stable with a Transformers reference and one from the Havana meets Kingston project. Hope you hear something you like!
