Winter’s creeping in, and it’s time for a new mix. We Real Cool is on Mixcloud now.
With thanks to Gwendolyn Brooks for the title and the reading. She real cool.
There’s been some great new music in 2021, so I thought I’d smush it together with some stone cold classics and see where we got to. I don’t know if this is party music, jazz or IDM, but I love it all, which was the justification for it fitting together. Warp Records and Ninja Tune put out the bulk of the records here, so as always a big nod to them both.
The final track is from the forthcoming Coldcut album, @0 which already sounds amazing, so be sure to check that when it hits.
This show was 1st in the global idm chart, 1st in the global experimental chart, 2nd in the global trip hop chart, 4th in the global downtempo chart and 37th in the global edm chart.
