In hour 2 we welcome Joe Muggs, long time music writer onto the show with a mix inspired by the refreshing zippiness of footworking beats to make a mix of jittery jit, high voltage electro, hyperspeed garage and full-tilt acid grime...First stop Chicago with DJ Diamond and we continue with Patrice & Friends, Kidkanevil and the excellent Pinch on Deep Medi Muzik. MIA and Roni Size both get a relick and we return to Planet Mu with DJ Earl to close.
Blue Daisy steps up to end the show with a mix of completely unreleased music straight off the hardrive. This talented producer veers off the straight and narrow into rich textures, often dark and atmospheric. We suggests donning the headphones, sit back and sink into the lush sounds of Blue Daisy.
