MBE Aug. 17: Hot tunes and tix to Jamie XX, Wet Leg, and more

Hosted by and

Hit play for a show chock-full of favorites, including a timeless jam from 2015 titled “Loud Places” (which samples Idris Muhammed’s 1977 “Could Heaven Ever Be Like This”) from euphoric dance producer and remixer Jamie XX. Then go to kcrw.com/giveaways for your chance to catch him up close and in style in a box at the Hollywood Bowl on September 30. 

Irreverent post-punk duo Wet Leg are back in the chat with their big strutter track “Wet Dream.” Released earlier this year, it’s Today’s Top Tune, so get your free download on and enter for your chance to win tix to see them live at This Ain’t No Picnic Festival in Pasadena on August 27 and 28, alongside Mac Demarco and Jungle, who also make appearances in our set. 

Plus, we’ve got the new self-produced track from serpentwithfeat, who brings his Baltimore club sounds, some mellow introspection on Nick Hakim’s latest, and ANOTHER GIVEAWAY. This one’s to see Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Adrian Younge, Brian Jackson, Doug Carn, Henry Franklin and Katalyst at the Lodge Room as part of Jazz is Dead Tour on Sunday, Aug. 28.
