Andy Mcclusky And Paul Humphries20100531

In the latest edition of the show, Mark turns his attention to synth pop, playing classic tracks from Depeche Mode, Soft Cell and John Foxx alongside future synth stars Hurts, Fenech Soler and Delphic.

In the second hour of the show, Mark is joined by Andy McClusky and Paul Humphries of seminal Liverpool based electro group OMD, who had a string of hits in the 1980s such as 'Enola Gay' and 'Electricity'.

Mark talks to them about their rise to fame and the impact their music had on the charts, and talks to them about the music which inspired them to get involved with electronic instruments.

In the final hour there's a very special guest mix from hot new Producer, Grum.

Grum - aka Leeds based producer Graeme Shepherd - set the blogs alight last year with his tune 'Heartbeats', and his album of the same name fuses the sound of 1980s keyboards with throbbing twenty first century electro.

In this mix he plays retro electro which inspired him alongside a collection of his current favourites.

Blancmange And Mirrors20110116

Record company boss and electronic music enthusiast Mark Jones continues his series exploring synthesised music past and present.

On the latest show, Mark talks to 80s keyboard duo Blancmange.

Described by Mute Records' Daniel Miller as the "maiden aunts of electronic music," Blancmange shot to fame in the early 1980s with a string of top 10 hits including 'Living On the Ceiling', 'Blind Vision' and 'Don't Tell Me'.

Having been cited as influences by bands including La Roux and Faithless - who recently collaborated with vocalist Neil Arthur on their album 'The Dance' - the band release a new album in March after a 25 year break.

The duo join Mark to talk about the music which inspired them to pick up electronic instruments, why they've decided to reunite after a quarter of a century apart and what they've been up to in the intervening years.

In the last half hour of the show, there's a guest mix from new Brighton-based electro band Mirrors.

Having toured Europe with OMD at the tail end of last year, the band play a mix of the 'synthfluences' which have informed their debut album 'Lights And Offerings', due out in February.
