King Britt’s latest dispatch finds indigenous sounds from around the world with a common thread, proving rhythm is a universal language.

Globetrotting DJs and musicians are in-the-field musicologists, bringing together sonic cultures from various contexts. With his show Transmissions, King Britt reaches out into the ether, curating a mix of field recordings and obscure releases from labels such as FolkWays, RecRec, and Blackest Forest Ever from deep in his archives. This month’s show takes us on a beautiful sonic journey: Channel the spirits of the Yoruba in Nigeria, break out the hammer with Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, sing along with a Pakistani Oushtu love song, and rock with King Britt’s remix of Tony Scott’s Hare Krishna. It’s an earful of field recordings and remixes for your soul.
