    Ep 200 pt.2 w/ Madame Zhou

    Ep 200 pt.2 w/ Madame Zhou

    Mancunian maestro Madame Zhou helps run INDEX:Records, a Berlin-based label with strong ties to the New Zealand dance underground. This advocacy includes their recent NZ Electro 2020 compilation, and an upcoming EP by Ike Zwanniken. We hear a paean to a clublife, with a mix recorded just before the UK got shut down.

    About the mix:

    "This mixtape was recorded in Manchester towards the beginning of the Coronavirus lockdown in the U.K. which, happened to coincide with loads of my upcoming DJ gigs and parties that we were hosting being cancelled. So I wanted to recapture the sounds of the club, mainly as a nod to all of those hefty sound systems that are (temporarily) laying dormant all over the world, and to invoke lucid daydreams about the positive energy and spirit of the parties that will inevitably occur once this is all fully over"

    Ep 199 pt.1 w/ Totems

    Auckland sound architect Totems has been doing things on his own terms for a long time. His Kerosene Comic Book imprint provided a refuge for wayward beatmakers a decade ago (check the recently reissued compilations via Melb imprint Legacy Records). More recently, he has come back into the spotlight with a double A-side via M***O SKATO's Buzzy Point, the first in a string of releases due this year. Reuben goes fever pitch for 80 minutes with a journey through all of his touchstones.

    Ep 197 pt.2 w/ Excelle (AU/NZ)

    Excelle is a long-time friend of the FP crew, dating back to when she ran things at Samurai Music in Wellington (RIP). Nat's bold and considered style carries from her visual work, including our much loved hugging-cats, to her DJ sets. Now based in Melbourne, you can catch her soundtracking life at Black Cat and other haunts across the city when they re-open. Her mix is a paean to blue skies and open hearts.
