Really pleased that Touch Sensitive has provided well crafted selection’s for us this week. Label boss Mark says ‘On re-listening, it seems this selection of tunes was heavily influenced by the wet, grey and melancholy BT4 day that it soundtracked. Thanks to Passerby for the shout.’

Touch Sensitive is a Belfast based record label that deals in both new and archival releases. Our catalogue includes work with David Holmes, Cherrystones, Documenta, Barry Lynn, Group Zero, Black Bones, Autumns, Maya, Ai Messiah and Gross Net.

Sorry we’re a bit late this week; we played at Rye Wax on Tuesday and went to see Fatima last night, who was great. This week’s show has a couple of covers by Song Sung and CFCF and ends with William Onyeabor’s ‘Ride on Baby’ and a lovely tune by Abdel Aziz el Mubarak. Cheers

After a break over the holidays, our first selections of 2019 are for an old friend Luke who passed away a few years ago. As a teenager he was constantly playing everything from Antipop Consortium to Nick Drake, Vincent Gallo to Low End Theory. His curiosity for sounds and life in general was and still is infectious.

More tunes this week that are maybe suited to darker nights and colder weather (in the U.K that is). Mostly jazz from classic artists Bill Evans and Charles Mingus and onto more avant-garde artists Albert Heath and Michael Garrick Sextet, the music finishes with The Electric Prunes ‘Holy Are You’ produced by David Axelrod and a Sonny Sharrock tune called ‘Who does she hope to be’. Cheers iTunes

Music from countries such as Sudan, Ethiopia and Brazil. There is a live track from the brilliant London based band The Scorpios, an experimental one from Derek Bailey and Cyro Baptista, Samba from Jose Prates and finishing with dance floor friendly remixes by Daphni and Medlar. Thanks

A largely mellow assortment for this week. The selection opens Dr John's 'Did She Mention My Name?' includes the low key funk of Cymande's 'One More' and closes with Herbie Mann's 'Guinnevere', which features nice guitar work from the great Sonny Sharrock.
