BEST OF 2015 selections, including CYGNUS, DEMDIKE STARE, FLOATING POINTS, FORT ROMEAU, GEORGE FITZGERALD, IPMAN, JAMIE XX, KERRIER DISTRICT, LAPALUX, SPECIAL REQUEST + more, are featured on this special end of the year double episode. over 4 hours, co-hosts CHRIS WIDMAN, HENRY SELF + MR. JOSHUA mix through their favorite future music from 2015. as in 2014, if there was a defining characteristic of the year’s electronic and dj music, it was a penchant for mining elements of past styles–electro, uk hardcore (breakbeat), jazz funk + psychedelic pop–and recombining them into new forms. no surprise, 3 of our exclusive interview subjects from 2015–JAGA JAZZIST, HOWLING + WOOLFY VS PROJECTIONS–are among the top picks. [aired 3 december 2015 + 10 december 2015 on WLUW 88.7fm chicago]
