Nick Luscombe presents an eclectic selection of sounds from around the globe including Afro Colombian champeta from the 1970s, electronica from Manchester's Illum Sphere, a live recording by British bassist Dave Holland and a new album of remixes by Japanese producer Cornelius.

Radio and club DJ Nick Luscombe begins a two week stint in the Late Junction studio, kicking off tonight with West African music from Cheikh Lo and Toumani Diabate, contemporary British jazz from Neil Cowley and Dave Holland, and electronic sounds new and old, from Bernard Parmegiani's 1975 Etude Elastique to the latest dubstep-influenced electronica from Manchester's Illum Spehere and American producer Lorn. From the archive we have a 1976 classic from Brazilian maverick Tom Ze and vintage champeta from the Northern coasts of Colombia, a recent compilation from Miles Cleret's Soundway label. We'll also be hearing tracks this week from the new album of remixes by Japanese producer Cornelius beginning tonight with his take on "I'd Rather Dance With You" by Kings of Convenience.
