R$N Presents: The Noonday Underground Mix With Kay Suzuki


General Public & Ransom Note bring you the Noonday Underground.

A term coined to capture the bizarre energy of Sunday, day Northern Soul dancers in the late 70's, now a monthly live mix series come Sunday social.

We champion acts that bubble away just bellow the surface giving opportunity to the lesser known Dj's as well as giving praise to the more established artists on the underground dance music scene.

Each selector has an hour (ish) slot to record. That mix is then released for your listening pleasure on a weekly basis for the following month on the Ransom Note website.

Next up is Kay Suzuki…
