KarenP (Folded Wing) x Southend
Southend born, London based KarenP is hands down the most prolific and pioneering face of radio in the UK. Founding her company Folded Wing seven years ago, having produced Gilles Peterson’s much loved ‘Worldwide’ show through its heyday, today her company stands as the torch bearer for the burgeoning independent scene. Oh and she also hooked-up Mulatu Astatke with The Heliocentrics for her mould breaking Broad Casting night, from which classics such as ‘Masenqo’ were born. The rest is history as they say.
Inspired by her trips back home along the A13, KarenP gifts us a 120 From® ‘In Transit’ playlist of personal tracks that remind her of her days growing up in this lively coastal town. From Southend homeboy Danny Break’s ‘The Jellyfish’, through to the mid 90s classic ‘Atliens’ from OutKast. We arrive at our destination richer, warmer, having had a glimpse through her much to be admired record collection.
