For the latest episode, Rook Record's welcomes Bay Area regular DJ Platurn into the fold. I guess the best way is to let the man introduce the mix himself:
"For this live mix I pulled some of my favourite 7s from my travels throughout Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Japan, China, New Zealand, and more. Choice 45s selections across this particular diaspora, but with no particular focus. Just amazing music via everyone's favourite format. Enjoy it for what it is -- excellent music that rarely sees the light of day. Finally, fuck the orange shitbag for insisting on holding on to his racist notions of everything not amerikkkan. Believe in science, believe in humanity, believe in education and have faith in the goodness of us all."
And with that said, let's check out the music!
