Summer’s almost over and in the Midwestern U.S. the skies can’t stop crying. This week’s selections reflect those cloudy sentiments with new music from Synkro, Virginia and Different Sleep. There’s also some sunshine peaking through courtesy of DJ Tennis, Bwana and Gelka. Waterproof those headphones and go outside – this downpour is for dancing!

07/09/2016: Tropicalactic

In this hour, the Oracle opens up a limited-time-only space portal to the Galaxy of Infinite Summer. The journey begins with a surprising downtempo number from Komon. New tunes from Fakear, Niki & the Dove and The Natural History Museum assure your arrival on a truly beaching planet! There’s also a long lost treasure from 1980 in the form of New Musik’s “On Islands” – a song that never made it to U.S. shores back when it was released. There’s more fresh future finds to discover in this trip. Enjoy!
