A journey into sound – presented by Jesse Yuen 

Re-stream the show here (select 3 Dec 2017)

UPDATE Feb 2019 from our man in the UK Jesse Yuen – still closer than ever.

“Pretty sure you’ll never top the lateness this master tapes mix is sorry everyone but glad I got back to it! This show had a bunch of long songs in it which I decided to keep in nearly full length in the no-talking mix so it’s pretty long.  I opened this particular radio show with a snippet of Mei Saraswati’s field recording release ‘sky-and-below’ and in this mix decided to pop nearly the whole thing at the end to! This is certainly a case of the ‘patient listener getting the reward’ as after the extended field recording outro I snuck in a  hidden track of sorts that wasn’t in the original radio show just for kicks. The ‘secret tracks are called Lloop – Bulbbs 1 and Lloop – Bulbbs 2″.
