In this episode of Crimes Against Pop Paul and Carolyn look at Fraser T Smith’s new project Future Utopia, with a concept album asking artists to address one of twelve important questions facing the world today. There’s also brand new music from Chet Faker and A$AP Ferg, a solo release from Romy of The XX, and Hot Chip try their hand at remixing a classic record from OMD. There’s also an odd discussion about licorice which we can thank Jonsi and Robyn for.

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.
