The Beatbox Saboteurs Show - January 2020
We start 2020 fully focused on bringing you the best in new music with stunningly good tracks from Salty Greyhound, Coda Chroma, El Lago, In/Animate and Made In Minsk.
Elizabeth Joan Kelly is back with an excellent cut from her "Farewell, Doomed Planet" album and we have a spiffing remix of a Diane Marie Kloba tune. From just up the road in Brighton, we have Ditz and Brighton Strangler, then further afield we have Rational Youth and The 1865 adding the cherry on top.
That's one hour of music and sherry-infused presentation, featuring the cream of underground sounds, like a trifle ready to be spooned into your ears!

Leo Gilbert - January 2020
Two shows from Leo this month. This is because, despite planning to use his first show of 2020 to look back at the delights that came his way throughout 2019 – replaying some of his favourites and airing some of the tracks that were squeezed out as he made painful editing decisions – Leo found himself unable to resist the slew of new music that landed in his virtual inbox in the last month or two of the year.
In the first show - a major late-year discovery for Leo (probably years after everybody else) was Danish group Efterklang, and he just had to start his show with a track from their new EP "Lyset", a companion piece to the recent album, "Altid Sammen".
Syrian artist Omar Souleyman also features, with a track from his new album "Shlon", and broody new tunes from Daniel Knox and Sarah Mary Chadwick are particular highlights.
There are also two versions of a new song by Seb Rochford's Pulled By Magnets and Max Richter appears twice with a pair from his soundtrack to the film Ad Astra.
There is also a slew of fabulous music from around the world: Corridor from Montreal, Yamaneko from Japan and Makoto Holmberg from Italy. Closer to UK home, Leo has Zonae, Low End Activist, slowthai and dgoHn.
And there is so much more besides, crammed into 120 minutes.
The second of Leo's two two-hour shows for January continues the Chinese theme of his December show, with two tunes from China, one by Beijing-based Gong Gong and the other by the hard-to-trace Yao Shisan from the Guizhou Province.
He also has his first tune from Northern Uganda in the form of Rwot Moo, another from Danish new-favourites Efterklang and a couple from New Zealand in the form of Sarah Mary Chadwick and Nadia Reid.
Intriguing collaborations come courtesy of Elizabeth Fraser, ex of the Cocteau Twins, guesting on a new Sam Lee single, Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood working with cellist Oliver Coates on a fascinating eleven-minute track and Flaming Lips combining with Deap Valley to make Hope Hell High.
Also up is a debut tune from techno stalwart Benjamin Damage recording as BDB, Tygapaw's contribution to a Brooklyn compilation, Holy Fuck's continuing return to form, Samo DJ, Karel and a fourth track from Daniel Knox's wonderful recent EP.
All that and more await you...

Mark Cunliffe - January 2020
New year and yet more to look forward to. When you look beyond the commonplace there is a wealth of talent bubbling away. What of January then?
Habibi have a new track out ahead of their album release in February and one of my favourites, Onipa have some new material out and it's banging as always.
The enigmatic Sleeparchive released and unreleased a banger and then promptly put it back in it's box. Fortunately I grabbed it before it disappeared again.
My old mates, Seas Of Mirth are back with a new album that got physical from a kickstarter and I'm playing a track off it.
There seems to be a plethora of bassline in the show, not something I really intended but I'm happy it's happened. There is a featured EP from Mister Cheli who deals in all things moombahton and a featured album from none other than JME who sneaked in a December release that is one of the albums of 2019 in my opinion. No digital release at all either, only vinyl and CD and it never will be digital either. Big up JME, always doing it differently and after pretty much giving up on grime for a time too ...

Mark Whitby - January 2020
A lot of great releases are scheduled for the early months of 2020 including new albums by Islet, Cornershop, Squarepusher and Gums among others, plus a glimpse of what Skullfuck Jackson and Dementio13 have gone planned for us in 2020.
We also find room for a few releases that came out at the back end of 2019 and simply can't be ignored: these include fine EPs from Eekum Seekum, Monster Surprise and The Scottish Enlightenment and a cracking Somalian compilation.
Our featured compilation is out this month, though, and it's yet another in the remarkable series of releases from Thomas Imposter.
Meanwhile, Peel Back... features highlights from the Festive Fifty of 1999 and we speculate, rather uselessly, on what might have been in the festive fifty had such a thing existed fifty years ago.

Rocker - January 2020
A two hour show from Rocker this month, packed with new music for the new decade, including an exclusive debut session from The Lovely Basement, and tracks from Jetstream Pony; Stars On Fire; The Flatmates; Beat Hotel; Subway Sect; Humphrey Milles; Nylex; The Pistachio Kid; The Science Of Words; The Bitter Springs; and Comet Gain.
This month's electronica has a Germanic feel including tracks from Oliver Huntemann remixed by Hidden Empire; Microtrauma; North Collective remixed by Dominik Marz and a couple of Spanish-based producers, Edu Imbernon and Raxon, whose record is nevertheless on a German label.
This month's Educating Elizabeth record is a classic instrumental from 1960; while this month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is a 1949 example of Western Swing.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Subway Sect's new single 'How High The Walls?' was inspired by the hopeless situations found in the books of Albert Camus, as read by a young Vic Godard.

Sean Hocking - January 2020
I do enjoy putting together a beginning of the year show as it allows me to play you some of the tracks that may have not made the cut on previous shows over the past year and also feature oldies that are new to me and I hope, to you also.
That said, this show starts with a great collaboration between the mighty Jason Williamson and the International Teachers of Pop, a rather domestic little number about a pair of plimsols. Nice just to hear the word plimsols these days rather than the bog standard sneakers or trainers reference.
Sunny Sydney Christmas turned into a satanic like dystopian smoke engulfed nightmare this year and we document this in the show with our namesake song by Johnny Cash, Arthur Brown's Fire and the classic Australian heat song, "Too Hot to Move" by The Triffids. Unfortunately the only people who haven't been moving in the heat are the politicians, many others have had to as the choice has been lose you home or life. At the time this show was recorded over 800 homes have been destroyed and the fire season only officially started a few weeks back. The fires have been so awful that they have killed entire Koala populations putting this little bear close to extinction, this year our xmas money went to
Our favourites of 2019 that missed shows the first time round include Rian Treanor's track, "Good News". Really looking forward to new music by this producer in 2020. He might not be so in your face as the might Giant Swan but that same sense of dread disgust and anger are to be found in his compositions and they'll sit perfectly in the year coming where we'll all have to suffer the next US presidential election, we've left the last song of the show as a reminder of that particular fact. Also included are songs from newbies Meagher Benefits, The Soft Walls, Mush & Autarkic. We hope to hear more from them this year
On the slightly crazed side we've included a DJ Bus Replacement favourite by Michael Forshaw, 'I Love Horses'. Also a Hindi version of Donna Summer's , "Love to Love You Baby", The Fall covering a Sun Records Gem , "F-oldin Money $" and Klaus Blatter's "(I Find Myself Surrounded By) The Lunatics of Acid House" in which he manages a couplet rhyming house and spouse!
Favourite band names of the month are The Steve McQueens & Gabber Modus Operandi.

Thomas Blatchford - January 2020
Thomas is back with the 2019 hangover edition of the Dandelion wingding, meaning there's some of the best singles of the past 12 months from Hinds, Baker Boy, The Pink Tiles and Alice Skye, bits off albums of the year by Danny Brown, Minimal Violence and Autumns, plus a glimpse at piping hot reissues of The Prissteens and Vox Populi! (they added that exclamation mark themselves).
Also, there's a Daphne & Celeste remix we weren't expecting, a Courtney Barnett rework that sounded amazing on MTV Unplugged, and a brief detour down Memory Boulevard to visit a couple of Festive Fifty entrants of the 1990s.
