This edition of Crimes Against Pop sees Paul and Carolyn spinning new music from Sunflower Bean and an Avalanches song that sounds nothing like The Avalanches but does feature Denzel Curry and Tricky. There are also geographical challenges courtesy of Sir Chloe, a track from SAULT’s second album this year, and The Nude Party’s new record, which definitely doesn’t sound exactly like The Velvet Underground.

Crimes Against Pop – aka Paul Haswell and Carolyn Wright – have been DJing together since 2003, when they launched their eponymous monthly residency at the Buffalo Bar in London.

As well as hosting their own regular sold out nights in London, Haswell and Wright appeared regularly at Rob Da Bank's Bestival festival on the Isle of Wight, before moving to Hong Kong in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Since then, Crimes Against Pop have brought their eclectic mix of pop, hip-hop, r’n'b and electronica to major events such as Clockenflap and the Rugby Sevens, while earning a reputation for packing the dancefloor at bars and clubs across the city. They’re also known for getting Sunday mornings off to the perfect start with their Pop Fugitives radio show on RTHK3.
