Chapter Forty-Nine: International Blight

East meets West on this month’s chapter, where we open the show with some great industrial acts from Japan like Schaft, Mad Capsule Markets, and Schwarz Stein. Then we head west and spin some tracks from Poland’s C.H.District, German artist Paul van Dyk, and the UK’s London After Midnight, plus more! We hope you enjoy this global selection of fantastic music.
