Melodicablog 120430 This episode we’re celebrating the global phenomenon that is Record Store Day by, um, playing some records. Plus there’s the new Chris Coco single and some fine post dubstep stuff. All the shows are archived on the Chris Coco page at Mixcloud. There’s a new Melodica chart on Juno Download: here. Follow Chris Coco on MixcloudTHAT FUZZY FEELING: BEPU N’GALI – I TRAVEL TO YOU Bepu N’Gali is a musician from Botswana, discovered by International Feel after a chance encounter with a mate at a flea market in Buenos Aires and a bit of telephone detective work based only on a phone number scrawled on the back of a cassette containing a brilliant song. The result of this story is a fine debut single of Afro beat style Balearica with great remixes from Todd Terje, Rune Lindbaek and Tim ‘Love’ Lee. It’s coming on two slabs of high quality vinyl in May. RECORD STORE DAY Check the Record Store Day blog for more. APOLLO RENAISSANCE The re-launched Apollo Records, originally the ambient offshoot of electronic pioneers R&S, continues to impress with this EP from Jack Dixon.
