Electronic Explorations

Nick Luscombe hunts down the latest experimental electronic sounds plus sound art, Japanese folk and Caribbean rhythms.

Nick Luscombe tunes his specialist ear to the latest experimental electronic sounds. Featuring emerging Irish producer mcconville, tight edits and bouncy beats from Matmos’ new album devoted to our plastic consumption habit and Stefan Goldmann deconstructs the core parameters of techno.

Breaking up the beats are tracks by British sound artist Viv Corringham who explores people's special relationship with familiar places and traditional Japanese folk meets Caribbean rhythms in the Tokyo based collective Minyo Crusaders.
