It was great to be back in the studio after a six-week hiatus due to all the traveling I’ve been doing lately. Such pauses are always great because there’s an embarrassment of new music to play; the vast majority of this week’s show was new stuff – at least new to me.
So many tracks, but two deserve special mention: Ipacuba, by Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura Band, and this track, The Melody, by classical pianist Francesco Tristano remixed by Detroit techno god Carl Craig. This video is excellent, btw.
The setlist for the show is here as a Google Documents spreadsheet.
