This episode is dedicated to protesters in the U.S. and around the globe. There’s lucid hip hop from Run The Jewels, Saul Williams and Blackalicious. Worldly tracks come in from Bonobo, Tornado Wallace and Ali Renault. There’s a powerful message near the end by the xx. Play this one loud and proud.
The beats continue in our first edition of 2017. Things start with jazz-infused Future Music from Jeff Parker and Yussef Kamaal and then flow into some heavy beats from DJ Swagger, Nathan Fake, and Miagma. Newer releases from Vermont and Prince of Denmark create a hypnotic period of atmospheric vibes, before Fluxion closes with his classic dub-techno talents. There is a lot to explore within – join us for another journey into the ever-expanding universe of Future Music.
The third and final installment of our 2016 retrospective is here and for this one Kenny assembles some of his favorite music from the year.
