This week on The Progressive Underground, I drop a ton of new music with exclusive releases from Detroiters Boog Brown and Leaf Erikson, and former P-Funk alum Paul Hill.

Plus, new tracks from Swim Surreal, UK duo Edy Forey, New Zealand music ensemble Hiatus Kaiyote and Brooklyn-based acts 79.5 and Helado Negro.

Classic tracks from Shuggie Otis, Donna Summers and Sly & The Family Stone are also showcased.

It’s a multi-genre trek of future soul, deep house nu-jazz, and rare grooves. See the playlist below and listen to the episode on-demand for two weeks after it airs using the player above.
