Nick Luscombe

Nick Luscombe with tracks including a powerful new remix by London-based producer DVA [Hi:Emotions] - aka Leon Smart - who brings a darker, experimental flavour to Canadian songwriter Jessy Lanza's music. Plus, a tribute to the late Nigerian synth-funk pioneer William Onyeabor, early-80s post-punk ingenuity from Germany's Plaza Hotel and a new piece from Parisian composer Quentin Sirjacq, combining ambient influences and tuned percussion with the piano that's at the music's heart.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.
