CRIMES AGAINST POP – 016

Paul and Carolyn consider how busy Conor Oberst must be as he releases a collaboration between Bright Eyes and Phoebe Bridgers, and whether anyone is as busy as Tim Burgess, who has a new EP out on top of everything else he’s been doing this year. There’s also brand new music from Nubiyan Twist, Songhoy Blues and Tkay Maidza, plus a new discovery in the form of Donny Benet and a collaboration between hiphop legends Busta Rhymes and Kendrick Lamar.

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.
