My Double J show Fat Planet started on FBi Radio back in August 2003, showcasing new music from around the world, such as Scandinavian folk, Japanese dubstep and Chilean post-punk and flash-in-the-pan micro-genres like Euro-crunk and Digital Cumbia. The tracks that defined the show in its early incarnation can be found on the ‘Fat Planet – The 00s’ Spotify playlist, including M.I.A., Cansei De Ser Sexy, Konono No.1, Cornelius, Bonde Do Role, Shantel, Peter Bjorn & John, M83, Rachid Taha and more.

My program ‘Out From Under’ on London’s Resonance FM pushes Australian underground and experimental music further into the ether – and 2019 was a phenomenal year for wayward and warped local sounds.
The ‘Out From Under’ Albums Of 2019 playlist is up on Spotify, and features (in no particular order) tracks from this collective of artists, all shredding conventionalism in some form or another.
I’ve been digging deep for the Freak Wave podcast ‘Albums of 2019’ list, featuring warped, mutant music from around the world, and you can find them all gathered together on a new Spotify playlist. If you haven’t yet caught the podcast, this is the perfect jumping on point – and if you dig this, the full archive of Freak Wave episodes can be found wherever you get your podcasts.
