Alice Russell drops by to talk about her new single and pick faves from 15 years of Tru Thoughts records. Detroit MC Ahk chats about his new concept record, we rock out with Bloods and Luke Sweeney, plus peek at Ninja Tune's fall lineup, including new tracks by Bonobo, Machine Drum, and Dorian Concept.
Japan’s Dub Store record label releases previous unavailable rare rocksteady, ska, dancehall and roots reggae cuts on vinyl and as downloads, too. How did a little shop in Tokyo bring dozens of out-of-print records from King Jammy$, Derrick Harriott, King Tubby and more back into existence?

This EP was recently recommended for a Knighthood, for services to my ears.
Like listening to the Cocteau Twins on steroids. Very very sparkly.
