Fresh Soup 138: Hilfingerz, eUROpURO

Engurland, Engurland, Engurland ... your Royal duty as a St George cross-bearing, sunburn-sporting, pint of Carling-swilling, monobloc polypropylene chair-chucking, international King of the louts is upon you. Let batty old Liz swear you into the court of chaos, say your oath to the spirit of Captain Tom, spit on the Marxist cult of BLM and shag a poppy. Your time is now, your country needs you. Or actually, just get in the sea you fascist fucks. Capturing the contradictory spirit of our...


Fresh Soup 137: Pierre a Soif

If you were in danger of having a lazy weekend, collapsing into your easy chair and tuning into Kenny Rogers, then fear not, our very own hero in a half shell is back to save your Saturday. With a familiar Soup session of squelching electronica and throbbing club-ready beats, the bandana-clad martial arts expert lures you from the sofa into his sewer. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 136: Simon Howlett

Deep and delicious, Simon Howlett's mixes are made for sweltering late nights and balmy evenings as the sun sets on a city skyline. Dropping in another Soup session of house music inflected by gospel, soul, disco and more, this one's to the start of the summer we all deserve but probably won't get.

Fresh Soup 135: Øhm Sweet Øhm presents Pool Beats

Summer is peaking through the clouds of Covid and threatening the status quo with the promise of fun. Remember that? To celebrate the return of sunburnt noses and sweaty briefs, our very own Øhm Dawg has cracked open a tinny and is luring us to his pool party with a session of future beats, lo-fi hip hop, neo soul and contemporary r&b. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 134: DJ Simm, Marcus Intalex Remembered

Active from 1991 until his untimely death in 2017, Marcus Intalex was a true pioneer of drum and bass in the north west of England, and a force our Simm considered one of the very best their was. Also producing house and techno music under the pseudonym Trevino, this tribute to a prolific game-changer in dance music takes us from Intalex's frenetic and soulful d&b back down to the slower but no less intense sounds of his four-to-the-floor alter ego; Simm marking the anniversary of his...


Fresh Soup 133: JBdeQ

With a record bag capable of slaying a dancefloor at a rate more rapid than care home occupants were slain by a failed herd immunity policy, JBdeQ returns with another hour packed to the rafters with pitched up vocals, breakbeats, acid lines and booty-shaking beats and bleeps; working your inner hedonist into quite the stupor. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 132: Matthew Egginton

Corona and conflict, corruption and climate, uncertain times call for a measure of calm. Who ya gonna call? If global confusion were a ghost, our Matthew Egginton would be the embodiment of Bill Murray and his phantom bashing pals. Fanning out the noise with another session of soothing spiritual house music, lose yourself in the blissful beats of our very own bedlam buster. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 131: Pete Carvell

The management would like to issue Mr Pete Carvell a formal double apology. Firstly, the blighter keeps making topical statements in his episodes: we are aware this is posted on the wrong day. Secondly, after finally making a date with a beautician, he asked us not to include this photo of his lockdown monobrow ... Actually, have just been informed neither of these devilishly handsome men are actually Mr Carvell, but they are in a pub, which keeps us inline with topical statements....


Fresh Soup 130: Mark Kovich

Dishing up a Soup serving with another selection of lush house sounds more contagious than the Indian variant, big Mark Kovich is back behind our boogie box to take your weekend to the next level. Deep and dreamy, dandy and discoey, lose yourself in the hypnotic groove of house goodness. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 129: Simon Howlett

Is it ending? Is it time to dance? Whilst the pandemic is far from over, the shift into summer has brought with it a renewed sense of hope; vaccines on both sides of the pond they call the Atlantic being pumped out faster than Michael Gove can hoover up a line of bugle. Whilst the third summer of love may be on ice until 2022, we can still revel in a little positivity, and who better to soundtrack it than our resident Portland-based disco chugger, Simon Howlett? Nobody, that's who. See...


Fresh Soup 128: Pete Carvell, Unlucky 13

Superstition is a load of bullshit, right? Wrong. Having just realised this was his unlucky thirteenth mix, our Pete promptly severed his toe on a picture frame. Bloody hell. Literally. Thankfully the curse didn't extend to this Soup session itself, Mr Carvell pumping out a typically rollicking affair that contains new music from Boys Noize, Perel, and Who Made Who, as well as a Frrrrresh drop from the elusive Burial which is as absolutely bonkers as it is brilliant.

Fresh Soup 127: DJ Simm, Can I Get a Rewind?

What do you call it, garage? What do you call it, urban? What do you call it, 2-step? At the end of the 1990s, skipped garage beats were forming a new evolution of sound in urban dance music; flooding dancefloors from East London to Ayia Napa with good vibes, attitude and eccentric MCs. Taking the 'speed garage' that Americans Todd Edwards and Armand van Helden had pioneered to a new audience and setting forth a transition that would go on to form UKG and dubstep, this hedonistic...


Fresh Soup 126: Buck Houston

From pop to post punk and back again, Buck delves deep into his mixed bag for another session of sounds from the nether regions. More colourful than a set of Downing Street curtains, but much less shady, let Mr Houston take your hand and help you frolic through our late stage capitalism dystopia with gay abandon. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 125: JBdeQ

Piling up the bangers higher than the stack of bodies Boris Johnson would rather have seen than another lockdown, JBdeQ is back with another hour of clubby, urban-edged house, electro and breaks. Soundtracking the sort of party we're all itching to get our bags out for, crank up the volume, piss off the neighbours, and lose yourself in the moment. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 124: Matthew Egginton

Inspired in part by Mr Rycroft's recent 'house awakening' Soup session, our very own Duke of Drifty Synths, Matthew Egginton, calls on some of his favourites from "back in the day" for an hour of progressive house that reaches right into the scene's roots; a world of atmospheric arpeggios, of early trance and Renaissance-inspired euphoria. See for privacy and opt-out information.


Fresh Soup 123: Øhm Sweet Øhm presents Gigolography

When you call yourself DJ Hell, it's obvious you want to let your listeners know what to expect. Sure, you could be plundering the Coldplay back catalogue, but you know whatever you're getting yourself into, it's not going to be easy listening. Thankfully, Helmut Geier doesn't seem keen on Chris Martin and his merry band of Tories, his brand of Hell is one of chaotic, punk-laced electronica; and his label, International DeeJay Gigolo Records, is a perfect expression of his sound. Founded in...


Fresh Soup 122: DJ Simm, 'Ardcore '94

In the 12 months where fun got banned, nostalgia for packed dancefloors, lasers and big fish little fish dance moves has peaked; the sound of British hardcore being reproduced by kids who weren't even a glint in their parents' massively enlarged pupils, and hipster Instagram accounts ramping up the likes with crackly VHS footage. It's easy to forget, though, that there was huge prejudice at the time toward these raves and their music; and from the dance music community itself. They say time...


Fresh Soup 121: Mark Kovich

Our overlords have spoken and the doors are opening for a summer free from Covid restrictions, the prospect of being as one united under a groove looming ever closer. With sets frequently deeper than a certain German-Greek reptilian will be on Saturday afternoon, Mark Kovich is the man for this moment, his latest Soup session locking in electro, expansive house music, understated synths and squelching melodies fit to soundtrack our pending reunion. See for privacy and...


Fresh Soup 120: Hilfingerz, GTFU

If Hilfingerz' last Fresh Soup session was a moment of contemplation and calm, his latest is the storm it preceded; Tom saying no to shamanic mindfulness and a big yes to ass-grindin' mindlessness. GTFU (you can work out the acronym yourself) is a very Hilfingerz celebration of Britain's gateway to bad behaviour finally opening its doors; the next Manchester Renaissance painting as close as it has felt since the sorry shitshow began. From pricks in the arms to pricks in the bars, our...


Fresh Soup 119: Pierre a Soif

He's got an obsession with Messrs‎ Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo; he's eternally thirsty; and he loves a throbbing banger of a tune. It's the one and only, Pierre a Soif, back to rock you out of your socks with another dose of club-orientated nu-school electronica. See for privacy and opt-out information.
