The brilliant new single from Self Esteem, the return of Courtney Barnett and the latest from Liz Lawrence feature on this episode of Crimes Against Pop, along with a poppy new track from Aurora and a collaboration from Dave & Stomzy, the Simon and Garfunkel of grime. All that plus a rather dark cover of Laura Branigan’s “Gloria”, a club-focused track from Amen Dunes and Sleaford Mods, and a warning relating to Powerpoint presentations from moa moa.

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.
