On NOT 97's debut episode, we meet at the Only NY shop to discuss the context and potential of budding, untapped talent from around the globe.

A wide range of music is brought to the table: from Melbourne's tight and ambitious seven-piece The Cactus Channel, to a young and unknown LA-based RnB artist with an uncanny resemblance to nostalgia, ULTRA-era Frank.

01 "Do You" by Naji
02 "Do It For Nothing" The Cactus Channel & Sam Cromack
03 "No Good" by Alcordo
04 "Goodnight" by Philip Owusu
05 "Co-Pilot" by Chidi Himself
06 "I Still Care" by vōx
