This week om Radio M: The Featured Album.

This month it's the latest in a series of musical pairings titled Inspiration Information. The series, according to the Strut label is to bring "together modern artists and producers with their musical heroes." On the third installment-Inspiration Information 3- Ethiopian legend Mulatu Astatke plays with the musically eclectic UK collective The Heliocentrics.

The result is a mix of the eerie pentatonic Ethiopian musical scale with some electronic noodling and Sun Ra inspired sonic exploration.
