414 – Kasra vs Foreign Concept
What do you get if you cross the sounds of Critical Music boss Kasra and label affiliate Foreign Concept? Well apart from an over excited Data Transmission office, a stonker of a podcast would be our answer as the two D&B dons have joined forces to provide this weeks exclusive mix for your listening pleasures.
It’s Kasra’s second appearance on our podcast series having previously wowed us with a solo outing back in 2010 and comes ahead of this years much anticipated #CriticalSound Christmas party which sees Kasra and co. return to London for a very special one off even on December 20. With Kasra, going back to back with Foreign Concept, Mefjus teaming up with emperor with further support from man like Marcus Intalex and Spectrasoul we thought we’d give you a taste of things to come by having the aforementioned Kasra and Foreign Concept work their magic for us this Christmas.
