This latest Motion playlist dates back to late summer, with the tempo dropping accordingly into machine soul, trip hop and finally post-disco and techno.

Anthony Shakir – Tracks For My Father

September 30, 2018

Over in the space of twenty-five minutes, this four track EP hits you like a vintage soul album in miniature (albeit shot through with a healthy dose of Future Shock).

June 29, 2018

August 3, 2016

Each of these records is a chapter in the story of music's dalliance with the cosmos, tracing a fascination with the stars through the 20th and beyond.
