Spotify’s Track ID is an exciting concept aimed at demystifying every song from every DJ. It’s Shazam meets Google, as it’s aimed at sharing music provenance and getting in deep with DJs and their influences. P.S. Jamie xx delivers. Too loud?

If we can, we will. We are out supporting our hospitality friends and their friends by booking tables at Shannon Martinez’s Lona Misa.

And finally, with open minds and hearts, we explore A Miracle Constantly Repeated by Patrica Piccinini.
