Music from the end of the world.

Midnight Looms 039 – ZAHRA HABIB & MF DOOM TRIBUTE – January 19 2021

Tonight, we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of this this weekly JOURNEY-BY-DJ FOR LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS, and we couldn’t have a more fitting person to spend this anniversary with because she’s such an important part of the show. ZAHRA HABIB is the Program Director at RADIO WESTERN. She’s also the LONDON MUSIC AWARDS 2020 DJ OF THE YEAR, and tonight, she showcases those award winning skills with an MF DOOM TRIBUTE SET, focusing on songs sampled in DOOM’s productions. London’s favourite DJ paying homage to one of the greatest legends of HIP HOP on our birthday? What an honour! What a show!!

Our host, GOBS, gets you warmed up for Zahra’s good vibes with some smooth NEW Hip Hop from THE AVALANCHES, BUSTA RHYMES & KENDRICK LAMAR, ELI ESCOBAR, a STONER JAM from NYC’s HERBAL TEA PODCAST and even a lil’ bit of JAZZ from IBRAHIM MAALOUF. After Zahra’s MF Doom sample throw-down, Gobs puts the needle on a bootleg VINYL MASHUP of MOS DEF and DANCEHALL LEGEND, EEK-A-MOUSE, before drawing this birthday to a close with local URBAN goodness by FAIZA & JIMMY BRICKZ, HAVIAH MIGHTY, SAVERIA, and the pride of our hometown, London, Canada, SHAD (ft. KAYTRANADA).

Rest In Power MF DOOM. Happy Birthday MIDNIGHT LOOMS. Too many feels right now.
