Mornings with Darkfloor – November 30, 2023

As the sun shone into the studio it felt like a good time to play some house – beginning with Pépé Bradock, we rolled into Mark Broom’s Kingpin Cartel, before settling on Larry Heard’s Mr. Fingers.

From there, the jazz fusion of Al Di Meola, Victor Wooten, bassist for Béla Fleck and the Flecktones, and the tale of Tubby the Tuba. We go deep with Leftfield, Kareem Ali, and Steve von Till, before playing the full 12 minutes of Rufige Kru’s Hornet 127.

Following a brief detour via The Fall, the rest of the show orbits around indie folk, pop, electronica, and Cuban sounds. With music from Destroyer, Lp Giobbi, Panda Bear, Ry Cooder, Skullcrusher, Smalltown Supersound, and Beth Orton. Before closing with one of my favourite tracks by Killing Joke. RIP Geordie Walker.
