“This week we have a mix from Bristol residents Malachai with their ‘Herbal Elixir’ mixtape. With an album out on Domino, we get to hear a selection of their tracks and plenty more that have influenced the duo. Erykah Badu, J Dilla and Gonjasufi all feature alongside music from ESG, Gary Numan and the sublime ‘Soul Vibration’ by Dorothy Ashby. DK begins proceedings in hour 2 with some current House grooves, although a couple lean more towards 1988, in a good way. Julio Bashmore is back with another stormer, Wiley is remixed by Toddska, there’s unreleased music from HaHaHa and we finish with NDV on the excellent Botanika label.
Albert continues the second hour in a dubstep vein, more textured beats than gut wrenching bass. We hear more tracks from his EP on Studio Rockers that has already had spins on the show, plus tracks from Jack Sparrow, Subreachers and Root.”
