Monolith Cocktail - M.A.K.U. Soundsystem

Welcome to the second of our 2016 quarterly playlists; a chance to catch up on the last three months of posts and features on the Monolith Cocktail. We got everything, from polygenesis New York sass and funk, done Columbian style by the M.A.K.U. Soundsystem, to the return of the menacing augers of doom Radiohead. There’s Afro-Haitian vibes from Tony Allen and the Hispaniola Island’s best musicians alongside the all the best new Hip-hop cuts from Mr. Lif, Apathy and Danny Brown, and a wealth of folk, progressive, psychedelic, Krautrock, jazz and troubadour magic from Melt Yourself Down, Raf and O, Vukovar, Cate Le Bon, Spain and Mick Harvey.
