Back after a week off and raring to go!

Tis the 1st of December and Modern Highlife brings you the first of several fantabulous shows to accompany your weather woes. So why not emulate those of your parents and ancestors....turn off the lights, huddle up and turn on the wireless (or in this case laptop).

Tonights show features plenty of beastly bumps in the form of those lads from Berlin; Brandt Brauer Frick, a brand new Joy Orbison cut which takes us to Detroit and back. And speaking of Detroit watch out for a Carl Craig of Ramadanman that is Biiiiiiiig!

Favour your music at a slower pace? Try some eccentric UK hiphop from Jai Paul...or some electric/swing/folksyness from Gruff Rhys (very nice!). All that, much more and a vintage Roy Ayers track! What more could you want!
