Hannah Peel vs Kamikaze ‘Space Mix’ for BBC 6Music

Something nice to kick the year off here. Last season’s Dead Albatross winnerHannah Peel, stepped in to session with Dead Albatross creator Paul Ackroyd aka Kamikaze for a twenty minute mix from space. Put together for Tom Ravenscroft’s show on BBC Radio 6 it was originally broadcast last Friday on his show, leaving you about 26 days to listen to it before it disappears.

On a side note, we should try and get Tom Ravenscroft in as prime minsiter. The man’s an absolute gent, who not only played our records across the airwaves when we were releasing but always took time for a chat and to receive the plates in person that we’d hand him in the reception of BBC an hour or so before before he went on air. Long may he reign as the champion of unheard music.

Featuring a few from Ras G, Sun Ra, Death Comet Crew and of course something from the Irish songstress herself it’s a heady listen that you should feel free to blaze to. Full mix is embedded below with track list underneath it again.
