Feast Your Ears on These Upcoming Guest Playlists On The Illicit Grooves Radio Show

Since joining Starpoint Radio in 2016 The Illicit Grooves Radio Show has invited DJs and Producers to curate and mix their own guest playlists to broadcast on the show.

We are so chuffed that for June we have a number of musicians and artists who will be contributing their curated playlists of music that has influenced, inspired and had some significance to them.

It is with a real sense of pleasure and anticipation that we welcome confirmed guest playlists from Azhaar Saffar, Arema Arega, Born74 and Ricky Reid from The James L’Estraunge Orchestra.

Azhaar Saffar is riding high at the moment with her album Original Love including the Snowboy produced title track. With tracks written on a beach in Nicaragua and being inspired by her poet uncle and by seeing Dayme Arocena live this album is a treat.

Arema Arega, who featured on Gilles Peterson’s Havana Cultura Band album in 2017, is the wonderful voice, co-writer and co-producer on Born74’s new release Blue Bossa-My Feeling.  Both Arema and Born74 will be curating their own playlists for the show.

Our fourth confirmed guest playlist for June comes from Ricky Reid from The James L’Estraunge Orchestra.  After the success of last year’s debut album, See You Tonight on BBE Music, the track We Rise has been released as an EP of remixes on the same label.
