Resonance FM 10/9/19

After a short break I'm back for series #17835128457214 of Dig That Treasure on Resonance FM. And nothing's changed! The same clumsy, ill-prepared presenting, and the same eclectic mix of tunes - best you'll hear anywhere. Like every show, this one was packed with amazing tracks: from People Like Us' sample cacophony to the fictional orchestral chatter of Doopees, making stops at Gabon, Afghanistan, the US, and Ethiopia along the way.

Resonance FM 2/7/19

Ten songs across thirty minutes. Four (under 80 seconds each) from Lily & Horn Horse. A dose of steel-pan funk, some Portuguese fado, Guinean pop-folk, a sprinkling of Platonica Erotica and a bit of anime soundtracking. I ended this show with a magnificent, climactic, pitiful, beautiful, hideous, phenomenal, appalling rendition of 'New York, New York' by Ken DeFeudis.

Resonance FM 18/6/19

I kicked off this show with a bonkers collab between Banny Grove and Jennifer Vanilla, before stopping off at Malian kora player Kandia Kouyate (lovely tune!), Ukrainian ambient dark-wave folk artist Svitlana Nianio (also a lovely tune!) and Haruomi Hosono's 'Pleocene' (also also a lovely tune!!). I closed the show with a live version of "Blue" Gene Tyranny's 'Next Time Might Be Your Time'. Oh yeah!
