Is there any other show where you’d find the funky sass of Bo Diddley cosying up to the minimal 4/4 of Fulgeance? Or the funkiest version of the William Tell Overture ever recorded alongside the XXX-rated mutant dancehall of Major Lazer? Of course not – and hell, those are just Trick’s selections. On his part, Tom brings the entrancing Techno Twins to open with, the tighter-than-tight vocal harmonies of The Jihad, the proto-tabism of Death Comet Crew and even the new one from Stone’s Throw’s soul sensation Mayer Hawthorne. So much to enjoy, so get stuck in!
