This Island Earth
Sunday July 24th, 2016 with PeterB
Shape shifting from minimalism, to unusual fusions, to pan-Atlantic, to Afro-beat!

Today's mis-adventure takes us from more deep-diving on minimalist musics, to some unusual worldly fusions and collaborations, more of some great new stuff, and HOT Afro-beat too! Mostly just lots of long sets, and long tracks today. How we like it. Hope y'all can join the fun. And, please hit us up on the Interactive Thingy (over there ==>). We'd love to hear from you!!
