Various Artists Flo-Motion Volume 2
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: Kudos
Need more proof about the sorry state of commercial radio in the States? Spin Flo-Motion Volume 2, the second mix of representative tracks from DJ Nick Luscombe‘s satellite XFM radio program. Luscombe‘s program specializes in downtempo, but don‘t expect an hour of limp n-th generation trip-hop dregs here: he opens with Jonny Trunk‘s gorgeous, filmic "Zeus," eases us into HKB Finn‘s unhurried rap "Confession (I Am)," and later transitions from the deep tech-dub of One Deck And Popular‘s "Inner Space" to Nathan Fake‘s epic bleep house number "Dinamo." Perhaps we can get radio this good over that newfangled internet!
