Fuzzbox Phil asks, did Aleister Crowley defeated Hitler? Can employing a wizard improve your musical performance. Who is the Thomas Dolby of Proto Punk and which musical heroes relative have you met at a wedding reception? Plus a tribute to Demis Roussos.
well worth the wait
Desperately trying to keep under an hour is proving difficult, I’m getting there. With a few scattered remixes (because playing remixes make you cool, right?) throughout this show I’ve also pulled out some old school-ish Lil Wayne and Dizzee Rascal – pre skateboarding/Robbie Williams collaborating. Mura Masa’s EP has been on repeat and Lapalux keeps us wanting more.
Charge your phone, Keep hydrated, Wear Earplugs: It’s a marathon not a sprint. Thus ends this year’s tge15 preview show, but before those immortal words are uttered, you’ll hear some stand out tracks from this years eager young artists, making their way to Brighton for this year’s Great Escape Festival.
We’ve got quirky weirdness, slacker indie, grime, a Bon Iver soundalike, a Death Cab soundalike, a Royal Tennenbaums soundalike and this lot:
Mumdance and Novelist
As the days get longer and we approach summer, this month Chris has come up with a deep and dreamy house mix to warm you up for whatever hedonistic hijinks you have planned over the coming months… this isn’t hands in the air fist pumping music, it’s chilled out, toe-tapping beats from the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Fred Everything and a deep house classic from Seth Troxler and two a piece from the recent, rather excellent long player offerings from Ame (Ame) and John Tejada (Signs Under Test)… enjoy and spread the word if you like it…
Jim has been listening to a lot of new music. Not so you don’t have to, just because it’s what he does. This last month he’s been listening to HOOKWORMS, LOWER DENS, EVANS THE DEATH, ALVVAYS and PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING – and he thinks you should too, so there’s a song from each of them in his show.
If you like them he thinks it would be nice if you bought their albums or went to see them perform. There’s also a potential single of the year by GRASSCUT, something vaguely nostalgic by LLOYD COLE and a spot the difference featuring CORNERSHOP.

Back for round 2, keeping this selection whittled down was a tough task – March saw releases from the likes of Drake, Action Bronson and Kendrick Lamar. All that combined with a slew of rediscovered mixtapes, older albums and a handful of attended gigs meant I was spoilt for choice with tunes to select from. With that being said, I enjoyed the challenge of choosing tracks that would sit along side each other in a complimenting way without being too obvious. I’m pretty sure there’s something for everyone.
