Paul Ackroyd aka Kamikaze ‘End Of Year’ Shows – 12 Hours Of The Best

As usual, the Awkward Movements charts for the year will be with us on the 1st of January ( ie we’re still hustling to get it off everybody) but the annual occasion of Paul Ackroyd aka Kamikaze doing his radio countdown to recap the year we just left behind is far more interesting.

Taking over a space of time that our radio home at NTS had going between Christmas and New Year’s, Paul recorded twelve hours of radio recapping the twelve months preceding it. Broken up in to quarters and organised chronologically, it’s a total of 143 stand out tracks to be absorbed.

Forget your record store or hype online-mag countdowns, this is the real thing from the man’s own record collection, tracks listened to and processed.

Stream the four shows below direct from the Kamikaze Mixcloud, track listing’s underneath that. Click it on and kick back, or get in touch to request downloads and we’ll chase it for your transportation listening needs.
