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.

In this episode, we take in radical and divergent sounds from Greece, Turkey, Colombia, Tunisia, Tanzania, Japan, Ukraine and more. We kick off with a true contender for my album of the year ‘Ofiodaimon’ – the psych-folk & synth collaboration from the Greek producer Anatolian Weapons and folk musician Seirios Savvaidis.
It’s 100% new Australian experimental and exploratory music on this week’s Out From Under. We’ll be listening to: new sound works from both musician and composer Rosalind Hall and Sydney’s Alexandra Spence; the Melbourne duo of Tarquin Manek & Ying-Li Hooi on a celebratory compilation from Altered State Tapes; minimal electronics meets exquisite vocals in new work from Allume and Eitanr; plus new music from Logic 1000, Automating, J Campbell and the deliciously named Little Songs Of The Mutilated.
