2 hours
First broadcast:

Mysterious Cardiff band Islet perform their bonkers but brilliant electro psychedelia live. Huw's Label of Love is indie/folk haven Dirty Hit Records, home to the likes of Benjamin Francis Leftwich & General Fiasco. Huw also has the brand new Little Comets single to play from the roster! Plus there's a cameo from, er, 1xtra's DJ Cameo, who pops in to chat about his MC competition to find the next Lyrical Master.
