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…

The Show: Taite Gallery

Happy birthday Aotearoa. Happy birthday Bob Marley. And most importantly, happy birthday Neil Swiggs, Esq.

Going way back to 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand, legendary music journalist Dylan Taite interviewed legendary rastaman Bob Marley, an interview secured via the well worn journalist’s route of “having a kick-around.”

And here’s the playlist (not quite) in full… we’re missing a few minutes where we played the Melvin van Peebles song. Apologies. That’s what hot weather and power cuts does to broadcasting equipment.
