This week we celebrate the posthumous Circles album by Mac Miller who was a big KCRW fan.  Circles finds the rapper transition into his Randy Newman (and sadly final) phase of journey with assistance from Jon Brion. Elsewhere Amsterdam’s Full Crate has a new single featuring Naomi Sharon plus Chassol out of Paris, Monsune, BK’s Theophilus London, Common gets remixed by Tom Misch and a new heater from Gothenberg’s sir WAS. We also highlight the sounds and connections between the recent passing of Jimmy Heath and NAS + DJ SHADOW. Enjoy!
