Kate Hutchinson with Nicola Cruz

First broadcast date: 15 June 2018

Monthly show from Kate Hutchinson, Guardian music and culture journalist, broadcaster and DJ from London. She is also the former Clubbing Editor at Time Out and is still waiting impatiently for the fidget-house revival.

This month, Kate’s show has an air of the mystical as she is joined by Andean techno producer Nicola Cruz, whose music invokes the landscapes and rituals of his homeland, Ecuador. Cruz brings in some folk influences, old and new – as well as what’s in his record bag right now and some unreleased music of his own – and discusses his journey from electronic unknown to smashing over 5m views on Boiler Room. Plus Kate plays field recordings by surrealist film-maker Maya Deren and philosopher Ursula K. Le Guin from around the world, alongside new music on a Brazilian boogie, dubby disco, Afro-electro, Aborigine reissue and ambient house tip.
