Pre-Hand In Post

Hand in of my dissertation tomorrow for like 30% of my degree or something. Good news for you lot, cos you don't have to hear me moan about it no more, and I get more free time to lavish you with audio. So here we go with some old favourites.

Sigmar Polke -B-Mode (1987)

Long time music bud of mine Nightmares On Wax with perhaps the shortest tune he's ever done. Clocking in at just under a minute I have to loop it every time it comes up because it's just so sweet. Check out the full album, Smokers Delight for more of this vibe.

Before I go diving more into UNKLE's discogs I've been revisitng the debut LP and more importantly the tune that got me to revisit them in the first place. Enjoy the brilliance of when DJ Shadow & James Lavelle give trip hop a go.

Speaking of revisiting stuff, MTB's been back in my rotation after a lengthy absence. First heard her on Tricky's debut LP Maxinquaye before deciding to look into her other work after her guest bit on All Alone from Gorillaz's Demon Days. A real treat and really underrated, here's my favourite of hers.
