CRIMES AGAINST POP – 011

Paul and Carolyn turn it up to 11 this week with an electronica-tinged track from The Shins, the fabulous return of Royal Blood, a discussion of whether A. Swayze of A. Swayze & the Ghosts is related to Patrick Swayze, and new music from the always-intriguing tUnE-yArDs. There’s also a track from Fleet Foxes’ beautiful new album and some unexpected sauna discussions courtesy of Pom Poko.

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.
