There’s plenty of new discoveries in this episode with new tracks from Smoothboi Ezra, Claud (the latest signing to Phoebe Bridger’s label), Romero and Katy Kirby. There’s also a track from a great new hip hop album from UK-Australian hip hop supergroup Quakers and some raging funk from Joel Culpepper. Also, Paul and Carolyn are very amused by a throwback 90s inspired slice rap purely because it heavily features the word “Bozo”.

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.
