The Show: Every time we meet we play hide and seek

It’s taken a little over 11 months but The Herb Whisperer has finally managed to watch his first complete film of 2020 – Steve McQueen’s “Lovers Rock”. Admittedly, it’s only 70 minutes long so it wasn’t much of a stretch.  Plus 10 of those 70 minutes were comprised of just one song, the extended (then a cappella) version of Janet Kay’s “Silly Games” that closes today’s show

And on with the show…

The Show: Get Smartr

Now that the Stormzy – Wiley feud seems to have ground to a halt we offer you a review of all the sends (5 in total) in today’s mix. Head across to niche website Grime Beef for more details. We ran out of time to include the black midi and Afghan Dan additions to the canon.

The spoken word clips are from the Luminary podcast Smartr. First two episodes are free to download / stream but the remaining eight require a subscription. This makes things slightly awkward because Luminary is not available in New Zealand.

Closing track is the 15 minute “Word Wall 2”, featuring Elena Poulou and taken off the first vinyl release from Salford club The White Hotel. The club might not look promising from the outside but inside, well, just check out their gig guide for starters.

And on with the show…
