Season Two Episode Three: Better Late Than Never

I'm not going to lie, these are getting harder and harder to do and I'm only three episodes in! Maybe November was just crazy - for fuck's sake a racist humanoid tangerine was elected "Leader of the Free World" - but on top of that bullshit, life was just hectic. 2016 has been a harsh mistress all around.

Looking back on the last two episodes of the season thus far, I felt there was a little too much electronic music. It's clearly a love of mine but switching from a live internet radio show to a podcast was supposed to free me up to dig deeper into my musical interests. I think I've cracked the service this episode, you can expect to see a quite a bit more variety in upcoming shows.

Also, I'm happy to have one of my good friends and favourite DJ's Nick Hood supply the guest mix this month! He did a stellar job, if you have ever seen him play live you know he always knocks it out of the park. It's been a while since he has released a mix so I'm honoured to have him break his fast on my show. In fact I wouldn't be upset if you skipped right past my mix and embraced his blend of trapped out chopped and screwed trill phonk head on!

FAWNA: Musical Flora

I stumbled across FAWNA about a year ago whilst on the hunt for Portishead remixes for what eventually became my 2016 Future Forest set, she has a live cover of Glory Box that i must have listed to fifty times. I don't know if its some creepy social media algorithm or The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon but much like the timbre of her voice she seemed to haunt me since that day. 

Her sound, in my humble opinion, exists in a unique place. Elements of R&B, Soul, and Electronica are apparent but if you really want to nerd-out on genres you could add Trip-Hop, Cloud Rap and Future Soul to the mix too. Her Voice and lyrics along with the Production of Loa Gaze is like a soundtrack to a dream, consisting of elements of the past and the future existing concurrently in a purple haze as if you stumbled into a Jazz club on a lunar space station.

I might be waxing poetic, it's the the best way I can describe sound. Take the time to hear for yourself and paint your own picture. She released a new album Vol. 1 just last week and it's a fantastic work, so make sure you buy it on Bandcamp
