The Don's selections cross time, space and genre and include Crucial Vinyl from The Orb.

Each week, as well as blending his favourite new music with classics from the UK, USA, Jamaica, Africa and way beyond, Don highlights a piece of Crucial Vinyl - a cherished album from his own collection. He explains why it means so much to him, and features three key tracks. This week it's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld, released by the Orb in 1991.

Don says, "This electronic collective, led by Dr. Alex Paterson were certified by the late John Peel, for whom they recorded several radio sessions. Their debut full-length release is a two-hour bass-heavy psychedelic journey via a seamless mix of different genre, studio techniques, vocal samples and sound effects. It's a non-stop trip from beginning to end.".
