FEATURING Arpan somani

Today's episode features our friend Arpan Somani at the table. Arpan works in brand partnerships at SoundCloud, co-runs the Brooklyn-based independent newspaper Hands, as well as manages Jachary, whose music was previously featured on the show.

Arpan introduces us to the lush melodies of two New York newcomers: Bathe & Rum.Gold.

We introduce an electrifying, genre-blending offering from Berlin’s Tuftyhead, a raw, nostalgic track from Ojerime, as well as a menacing and yet playful delivery from Chicago’s Nina Tech.
