Melodica 25.10.10

London : New York : Lagos. This episode is all about an urban electronic dance feel from Africa to the USA all filtered through the crazy mixed up melting pot of my home city, London. Or, to put it another way, I’ve been listening to the new Radioclit compilation, reading about legendary New York club The Loft. Or to put it another way: new music from Caribou. DJ Shadow, Aloe Blacc and the fabulous Planet Mu label and classics from Talking Heads and Manu Dibango. it’s all here.
