# H N D P C K D
Handpicked is a compact cassette label based in Glasgow, Scotland.
We put out a range of music, from golden era hip hop to future beats and back, our only aim is to push new music that excites and inspires us to an audience that otherwise might not have known it to exist.
CASSETTES & EVERYTHING ELSE -
January blues have never sounded so smooth.
On this episode we'll be playing out a slew of new cassette releases that we've foraged through the winter from the likes of Khryo & SNKA, the latest BROKE/ tape on brrwd and a couple of tracks off the Nekubi / Hajino that just came out on Late Lake Audio - all this alongside fresh selects and guest appearances from the Handpicked familia.

This Boxing Day we're throwing a 14 hour party across two venues, kicking off at The Arlington Bar with a FREE All Day Party, which will feature a live jam over various machines and microphones, as well as DJ's keeping the vibe right throughout the day. We're then heading over to one of Glasgow's finest institutions, The Art School, to end the night with a soundtrack selected by some of the cities most renowned turntablists.
We've invited a selection of the artists performing throughout the day down to the studio for a pre-festive jam.
