This week on the show my guest was Sam from Troumaca. They are a band from Birmingham signed to Gilles Peterson's label Brownswood Recordings.
The Grace LP was released on August 29th and is fab. I think of their sound as an exotic mix of bass, dub, synths, beats and harmonies in one big fat cosmic party bag. Sam joined me to chat about what they have been up to and to pick a song for our listening pleasure. He went for The Roots featuring Cody Chesnut with The Seed (2.0) (a huge tune). Listen back:
Each week I also make a mix of old and new tracks on the dance tip. It's music I'm playing out and some unearthed remixes that I think might go down well on Xfm. This week I threw in a re-working of one of the Mercury 2013 nominees, a couple of newbies from Breach and Stanton Warriors and a bootleg remix of one of my tracks of the summer from the Daft Punk album Random Access Memories. Listen below:
Laura Mvula - She (MJ Cole Remix)
Everything Everything - MY KZ UR BF (Clock Opera Remix)
Breach - Everything You Never Had (We Had It All) feat Andreya Triana
Stanton Warriors - Cut Me Up (Cause & Affect remix)
Daft Punk - Instant Crush feat Julian Casablancas (Heartik Filterwork remix)
