Thys came into Radio Ninja's radar by collaborating with Amon Tobin on the "Ithaca" EP as well as the "Charlatan" single with Two Fingers, an Amon Tobin project. I look forward to watching Thys' career in 2021! Amon Tobin's project "Figueroa" is included on the Mixcloud extended version of this mix, out soon here: mixcloud.com/radioninja
This EP was too good. Thanks to my DJ fren, "DABU" of the Green Program on #WZBC for bringing it to my attention. How have you been able to reach out to your frens in #quarantimes , ninja? There's a double dose of this EP in the Mixcloud mix!
In recent years, I've been naming one album as "album of the year" and played more than one song off said album for the "Meaning of Life" mix. This year, there are so many great albums and if I feel moved to share an extra song, I'm adding it to the Mixcloud version (think if it like buying the director's cut DVD with all that nerdy extra content). Well folx, this is the album of the year. Puja kinda broke my brain. Earworms for days. This track, Hanuman, was on repeat as well as "Ravana". Let me know what you think!
Ok, I know Panic Blooms is from 2018 but this one popped up in the form of a recurring earworm which got me through some hard times while I was waiting for the meds to kick in. Thanks, #BMSR <3 #panicblooms indeed.
