Resonance FM 9/4/19 (No Hats No Hoods)

This week's guest was Pete who runs No Hats No Hoods, the seminal grime record label. NHNH have previously released iconic records by Tempa T, P Money and Ruff Sqwad and - more recently - young South Londoners like Elf Kid and The Square. The label's latest project takes them out of London and into the Horn of Africa, where they collaborated with Ethiopian musicians who recorded instrumental tracks for UK producers to then play with. The results are fascinating and diverse in style, from Proc Fiskal's abstract boundary-pushing 'Geez Script' to Shudan's more conventionally melodic 'Hyena's of Harar', via a pioneering 3/4 grime beat by Ignorants. Pete was a great guest and gave a lot of insight into the project. Enjoy!

Returned to Slow Dance for a third show. This one had it all - choral music, UK and US rap, great tunes from East and South Africa, an old post-punk oddity, Thai crooning and brand new music from Hogarth and Taylor Skye.

Resonance FM 2/4/19 (Martha Skye Murphy)

Really enjoyable episode, this. My guest Martha Skye Murphy arrived with the intention of playing a few songs of her choosing but, about ten minutes before we went on air, we decided that she would do a live performance! So: the first three tracks are selections of Martha's choosing, and the final song is a brilliant impromptu performance of the Martha's song 'I'm Not Looking'. One of my favourite episodes in a while!
