Another Angle -- Meatskull

Lyndon Pike hosts a radio show in Sydney on 2ser , 107.3 on your fm dial. I've never listened to it, or heard anything from that radio station at all. But I do listen to the stuff that he uploads to his blog.

One mixtape that I love is his "Another Angle" series. A lot of the time, it's a recording of his radio show, or at the least a sample of the tunes he played during the show. Other times, it's a collection of tracks he's listening to and would like us to listen to as well.

The music is low-tempo, introspective, Sunday arvo on the couch with a good book and an hour to kill. Put on your headphones, pour a large Pimms, stare out the window kinda stuff. Sometimes there's some wobbly beats, some dubby sub-step, some reggae. Other times it's edits and dub excursions. Mostly, it's sonic textural soundscapes.

Details of his radio show can be found here

Have a listen to my favourite "Another Angle" episode, Volume 47

Where else are you gonna find dub, detroit deep house, slanted beats, inspired mash ups, Indian pop, and Tina Turner covering a Massive Attack classic? Nowhere, that’s where. Hop onboard the Meatskull express as the Another Angle series grows and grows.
