Perfume Genius and Club Cheval!

2 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 07 July 2012

Seattle-based Mike Hadreas, aka Perfume Genius, popped into Maida Vale to record Rob a very delicate and divine session of choral and piano-lead 21st century R'n'B.

Also the four Frenchmen of the dance-floor apocalypse aka Canblaster, Sam Tiba, Myd and Panteros666, aka Club Cheval of Bromance Records, provide a guest mix of up-front banging beats. And Robby heralds the arrival of a brand new day with the twittering of the birds and a sublime track for The Dawn Chorus.

The usual two hours of eclectic music from the UK and beyond with Radio 1's resident ponytail: Rob da Bank!
