Time for the obligatory year-end review and what a year for music it has been. This show could easily have been 2 or 3 hours long but after much deliberation and procrastination I managed to whittle it down to an hour.
I chose not to limit myself to new music but also to include my favourite rereleases and compilations.
I'm pleased to say that these include a number of releases from Glasgow Labels and bands.
Compilation of the year goes to 'Miracle Steps' on 'Optimo Music', an amazing exploration 4th world music.
New 12" of the year goes to 'Komodo Kolektif' with their track Djakarta 3001, a psychedelic and futuristic journey through Gamelan & Electronic Music courtesy of Invisible Inc.
Edit of the year goes to Orange Tree Edits Vol 3 with Cove Cove.
New Album of the year goes to 'Golden Teacher' with their LP ' No Luscious Life' on Golden Teacher Records.
Picture disc of the year goes to 'Coil' Cold Cell In Bangkok' on Optimo Music - obviously the music is sublime too!.
Album artwork of the year is an all Glasgow affair and no decision could be made here 'Miracle Steps', 'Golden Teacher' & 'Komodo Kolektif' earning joint honours.
Over the past year we've opened up the back catalogues of 15 imprints in our Label Focus feature, including the likes of Ostgut Ton, Greco Roman, Planet E Communications & Studio Barnhus. For the final show of the year we're selecting our top picks unearthed through all the digging in a very special, very eclectic Best of mix.
Residents Barrientos & DVRS have filled their stockings with some of their hottest cuts of 2017. Critically-acclaimed albums, dancefloor destroyers, underground gems and everything in-between are all coming together in two 40 minute live mixes from Glasgow's finest!
TONIGHT at 8 pm we are bringing you, as per usual, a selection of electronic music from Scotland as well as a production mix from Nova Scotia, an upcoming Glasgow-based producer (who is also a part of a curatorial collective Where People Sleep). Check her facebook page out! ----> https://www.facebook.com/novascotiathetruth/
For the last 20 mins of the show we are playing a little teaser mix for our FUSE night...announcement coming soon! ;)
CHUST SUBLIME all vinyl eclectic show presents a cool yuletide special. ANDREW BASTOW, the Edinburgh graphic novelist, DJ and all round good guy presents TWO HOURS of interesting, mixed and possibly wild choices from his vast record collection.There will also be 2 most excellent choices from the ENGINEER'S ARCHIVES. They are always worth a listen and are getting great reviews on line. SO TUNE IN AND BOLSTER YOUR HOLIDAY HAPPINESS WITH THIS FESTIVE PERIOD SHOW.

Horreurscopes Up first, reading the stars, is Horreurscopes. Saying no to chin-stroking electronic staidness: Horreurscopes is serious about spotlighting marginalised creators, overlooked underground productions and new releases. ♈
Babestation Not the Babestation you're probably thinking of... 😉 This Babestation are your two favourite Glasgow-based glamour girls b2b. They'll be playing music created exclusively by femmes and LGBT+ musicians, mixing sexy R&B with smooth electronica, as well as the occasional pop banger thrown in for good measure.
Trainwreck Headlining for one night only is Chicago-based legend Jakey Witz aka ATZ, playing his Scottish debut.
