The New Arts Desk Radio Show 4

Peter and Joe with the best in Glasgow Afrobeat, Welsh rap-folktronica and Cambodian psychedelia

Raf & O - Bowie fans

Back on the air for their best show yet, Peter and Joe are here to take you round the world, and occasionally further afield still.

In the first half they focus on the groove, with Cambodian and Mexican-Peruvian psychedelia, Brazilian rap beats, French dubstep, Polish trip-hop, Glasgow Afrobeat and Welsh rap-folktronica among others; in Part 2 they go altogether deeper, with Saharan radio recordings, Maghrebi musicians digging Stravinsky, a Japanese electronica monk and unearthed cyborg gay porn soundtracks. Enjoy the trip!  Full tracklist is below.
