Listen to our favourite music this month, in the latest VF Soho Radio show



Two hours of Bollywood samples, Japanese air conditioner soundtracks, 303-filled acidic anthems and more.

VF’s Gabriela Helfet took to Soho Radio this week for the latest instalment of our monthly show, playing a curated selection of new releases, reissues and interesting records that have made waves in the office over the last four weeks.

There’s new music from Anderson .Paak, Tirzah, Poppy Ajudha and Essaie Pas, a 1987 Japanese score for luxury air-conditioners, futuristic hip-hop meets Bollywood sampling, a funky 1983 number from Norway via French Polynesia, a trip to the Cult of Bass and more.

Listen in and check out the track list below. (NB: Helfet bears a striking resemblance to VF Editor Anton Spice in the photo.)
