NTS Awkward Movements Show – 31.7.14

Big show from Paul Ackroyd aka Kamikaze last week for Awkward Movements on NTS. Archive’s now gone up, and posted below for stream along with full track listing underneath it. As always, get in touch for download link.

Loads of cuts we hadn’t heard yet, including a welcome introduction Shabazz Palaces (pictured above), appearing twice in the two-hour session with cuts form their new record on Sub Pop. A wicked run of house and techno early on including a visit to one of our favourite all time plates in the form of Urban Tribe, and then some live instrumentation and experimental bits in the back hour, stopping off in hip-hop territory for a throwback to Blackalicious (remember Blazing Arrow?) slotting in perfectly.

Hadn’t even heard of Mauritania as a country but throughout the world musical endeavours Paul brings us something really special on the Glitterbeat label, from Noura Mint Semali, before bringing it back to deep electronics, closing it off with new Deepchord. Really enjoyed listening to this one, as always when he’s on decks.

Out to everyone who locked in as always, and those now checking out archive. Yours truly back in session next Wednesday / Thursday midnight UK time. No idea what we’ll turn up but definitely looking forward to it.
