    Because I live in London, whenever I get a chance to visit home in Turkey, I try to buy as much Turkish records (mostly 45's) as I can. And this time was no exception.

    Feride ‎– Dam Üstüne Çul Serer
    Deniz Erkanat ‎– Bu Aşkı Sen Yaşa
    Selçuk Alagöz ‎– Malabadi Köprüsü

    I also use Mixcloud a lot. There's a huge range of stuff, and many many archived radio programmes.

    SoundCloud can be good, but you need to heavily curate your feed. They get very good at recommending stuff after using it for a while, and the weekly suggested playlists nearly always have something I haven't heard of before.

    And I have whittled away hours on Radio Garden listening to random stations around the world.

    I'd hazard a guess that a significant number of those employees are "content moderation/anti evil operations/community management/legal compliance" type people.

    First off, thanks for taking the time to do this. I have one minor niggle though. Why is the United States at the top of the country list when all others are in alphabetical order? Or is that done...

    First off, thanks for taking the time to do this.

    I have one minor niggle though. Why is the United States at the top of the country list when all others are in alphabetical order? Or is that done through location data? My VPN is currently set to a US server.

    Ed: I just saw @shredderZX said the same thing. Sorry for repeating.

    The new Burna Boy album caught my attention. Some nice collaborations on it with people like Stormzy, Naughty By Nature and Youssou N'Dour. One of the standout tracks for me is Monsters You Made...

    One of the standout tracks for me is Monsters You Made (feat. Chris Martin) and yes, that's the Coldplay Chris Martin.

  7. Comment on The Food Programme: Food and the legacy of slavery in ~food

    Jaega Wise and Dan Saladino investigate the hidden story of slavery in our food. Between the 17th century and into the 19th, twelve million enslaved Africans were transported to the Caribbean and into the rest of the Americas. Their work transformed industries, including tobacco and cotton, but it was their agricultural labour that made the biggest impact on the world. The modern food system as we know it would not exist without the centuries of the brutal slavery put in place by European powers. The food we eat today, our palates and even the shapes of our bodies, are all a part of the legacy of slavery.
    Jaega and Dan tell this story with the help of James Walvin, a writer and academic who has spent fifty years researching the role of slavery in making the modern world. Walvin argues that we still haven't acknowledged this fact, and to move forward we will need to come to terms with this history.

    I have no idea how to tag this, so any ideas are welcome

    The Dwarfs of East Agouza are back with « The Green Dogs of Dashur » ! Once again, the prolific American-Egyptian trio composed of Alan Bishop (Acoustic Guitar-Bass/Alto Sax), Sam Shalabi (Electric Guitar) and Maurice Louca (Organ/Synthesizers/Beats) breaks off all constraints and reveals a resolutely free album offering an improvised trance to the listener. The hot embossed metallic double-headed dog designed by the Lebanese artist Lynne Zakhour perfectly illustrates this album that blurs the boundaries of rock and jazz. A new album that will certainly delight fans of the Sun City Girls or the Land Of Kushes.
