Chet Faker: Melbourne Marvels

More excellent radio from Red Bull. Chet Faker playing some of his favourite tunes - and favourite artists - all from his hometown Melbourne. Some really cool tracks in here from artists I'd never heard of, and a couple I had - I've had my ear on Thrupence for a while, looking to hear more from him! I lived in Melbourne for a while a few years back and really loved it, and it's cool to hear someone talk so fondly about it and hear what's going on over there musically now. Which is a lot, apparently!

2 All I Could Do - Oscar Key Sung
3 Tornado Never Dies  -Tornado Wallace
4 Take Higher Ground - I’lls
5 Flemington - Tom Day
6 Kiss Before The Fall - HTRK

Midnight Magic Mix by Soul Clap

Been listening to lots of Midnight Magic lately; I played the No Regular Play remix of 'Night Flight' on the latest Tiny Choons show, there was a 2014 rework of their tune 'Psycho For Your Love' on the latest Last Gas Station compilation, and I've had their Midnight Creepers album on repeat since. And lo and behold Swooner faves Soul Clap have put together a Midnight Magic Mix for Thump as part of a series LA venue The Well has started. Beautiful, dreamy cosmic spacey vibes for an hour. And it's downloadable. What else do you need?!

Posted a couple of amazing radio shows Soul Clap did over in Ibiza, check them out here. And for more cosmic space vibes check out this Kubrick Space Funk Mixtape by Marc DL.
