For those who couldn’t tune into BBC 6 Music last Sunday (May 8) to hear the latest in Mark Jones’ occasional series of 6 Mixes exploring synthesised music past and present, for which he was joined by Europe’s foremost electronic pop diva and former Propaganda frontwoman Claudia Brücken, the show is available to listen to here for a limited time.
