Tom is joined in the studio by Jockstrap, and has a guest mix from Steve Spacek

Tom is joined by Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye AKA London band Jockstrap in the studio, and has a guest mix from Steve Spacek.

Tom presents his own unique blend of music, and is joined by Georgia Ellery and Taylor Skye AKA London band Jockstrap. These guys are only 20 years old and their debut mini-album 'Love Is The Key To The City' really pricked our ears up when we heard it last year. From singing-in-the-shower samples to lush strings to idiosyncratic, scratchy weirdness and detuned vocals. If it’s not in your collections yet, then why not? Taylor says on meeting Georgia: “I thought she was uber cool. Her coolness was at its highest when she had a raffle at her birthday party. I won an iron.”

We also have a very special mix to play out for you from Beat Spacek AKA Steve Spacek. The Ninja Tune and Eglo Records (Floating Points) stalwart released his second album Natural Sci-Fi December last year which was 13 years in the making. He’s collaborated with the likes of J Dilla and Oddissee, transforms into Beat Spacek for the Ninja Tune label, dances around everything from Broken Beat to Soul to Hip-Hop. To be honest he needs no introduction. But we gave him one anyway.
