The Show: Witney, Granby, Rochdale, Preston

 – Witney, because of its community-run bus service; Granby, in Liverpool, for its resident-directed housing; Rochdale, the birthplace of England’s co-operative movement; and Preston, where the city council is breaking with a failed economic system. This becomes the chorus: “Witney, Granby, Rochdale, Preston.”

You can, kind of, lose yourself in it…

The holidays have been a good time to catch up on the overlooked releases of 2016 as well as enjoy the first fruits of 2017. Even then we could only squeeze in a small selection.

Today we’ve got the dark beats from the likes of MIXHELL (see video above for a 2017 remix of a late 2016 track), Tolouse Low Trax, Marie Davidson, Dread Monochrome, ‘duets’ from Islet and The xx, beautiful noise from The Trendees and MANNEQUIN PUSSY.

We also finally catch up with local hip hop label SEASIDE’s back catalogue. Have a listen to them on Bandcamp or hit the buttons below.
