The Show: Prepare now. Official information and instruction will be given over the wireless…

A little bit of a synth overload on the show today. Vintage, retro, lo-fi, vaporwave and a bit of the coldwave. Plus there’s a sludgy, doomy sneak preview of the new Shit and Shine album to round things off proper.

Speaking of synths, we couldn’t quite fit The Dewaele Brothers aka Soulwax into the show today but if you like rare equipment then their recent project with the legendary EMS Synthi 100 will have you fizzing:

By the way, the show title today is courtesy of Analogue Electronic Whatever‘s newish single “Hole”. Cracking video too!

And on with the show…
