In this episode of Machina I’m joined by my lovely partner the beautiful Saucy Miso as we review our favourite music of 2012.  It’s been one hell of a great year for underground electronic music, the result;  we produced a casual show that highlights the most memorable album releases, new shows and things that just plain impressed us.  Everything from the awesome Kinetik Music Festival, to the pile of amazing new releases, interviews, club nights, live shows etc.  This was one tough job due solely to the fact that so much great music was released in 2012.  There’s no real rhyme or reason and the picks are listed below on the playlist.

This release of Machina also marks my personal resolution to breathe new life into our weekly podcast.  Many of you have demanded it! Therefore it’s go time for delivery!
