It was two hours of strictly new music for this week's Stylin. But the sort of new music that recalls and respects the old. So we had Makoto putting Nina Simone (and a piano riff which I can't quite place - can you help?) into drum & bass, Build an Ark covering Pharoah Sanders, the return of Tribe Records jazz legend Doug Hammond, Daddy G remixing 4 Hero in vintage Massive Attack style and 80s acid housers the Moody Boyz back doing dubstep.

Albums to check: the drum & bass meets classical of Phoneheads with the Dusseldorf Symphonic Orchestra, the J-League hip hop of Median's 'Median's Relief', Build an Ark's second spiritual jazz album 'Dawn' and the Rza-affiliated soul of Stone Mecca.

Next week: interviews with Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek.

Stylin broadcasts live each Friday on Australia's best known community station, 3RRR-FM Melbourne.
