We're pretty hyped about Elaquent coming to vibe with us this Thursday, so we've picked out a few of our favourite tracks of his and stuck them together.
Also, this episode has the first listen to a few tracks off of the next cassette tape, plus some old gems and new jams that we've been feeling.
This one's short and sweet.

hw&w records special
On this episode of Handpicked we're delving deep into the back catalogue of one of our favourite record labels of the moment, Huh What and Where.
Started out of a college dorm, HW&W is a collective of like-minded musical souls who put out some of the most forward thinking electronic funk in the world right now. Their past releases boast inspiring names such as Ta-ku, Elaquent and Bahwee, over a variety of mediums, encapsulating the music in vinyl, CD, and even good old fashioned MP3's.
This is a selection of our favourite tracks from the label, as well as some bits and bobs from their artists that have been released elsewhere.

cassette launch // cheeky forty
With less than a week to go until our first cassette tape drops we thought it'd be suited to give you listeners a little insight as to what the artists on the release get up to in their own time.
This episode also features a bold selection of tracks from Cheeky Forty, plus the first chance to listen to all of the beats on the tape.

jetsam/konchis showcase : cassette preview
A selection of tracks by Jetsam, a producer rapidly gaining a lot of peoples attention, and with a release earlier this year on Phuturelabs and upcoming albums with Gasp and Physiks it doesn't look like he's going to be slowing down at all.
Part of Scotland's notorious hip hop crew The Being, Jetsam also writes lyrics and goes under the moniker Konchis, churning out everything from boom bap hip hop to club-directed bangers.
We'll also be giving you the first listen to a couple of tracks from the forthcoming Handpicked Cassette, available 12th January 2013.
Did we mention we're throwing a party?
