Going from one extreme to the other, on this episode of Crimes Against Pop Paul and Carolyn play through some sweet jangly indie courtesy of The Reds, Pinks & Purples and Silver Synthetic as well as some rather rude hip hop from CupcakKe and a moving new track from BERWYN. There’s also brand new post punk from Sorry, some soul from Fana Hues, and a collaboration between Du Blonde and Andy Bell. Plus a new record from Belly (not the Belly perhaps you are expecting…).

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.
