Botanika label artists, Polar Pair are our first guests in hour 2 and continue where we left off in the first hour with Universal Robot Band and into a couple of their own productions, the Sinden remix for Elizabeth Rose and L-Vis 1990. Then it's an accapella from Zombie Zombie, Deft and Django Django, with a little help from Tim Maia.
Our second guest is Kidsuke, the collaboration of Kidkanevil and Daisuke Tanabe, stripping it down with Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto, through electronic delights from Yosi Korikawa, Balam Acab and an instrumental from the excellent SpaceGhostPurrp.
