AbstractRadio session - november 2017

Greetings music fans!

Have you got your dancing shoes on?
Ready for some blisters?

Heading straight to the heart of the matter this time:
Here’s some proper sweaty clubbed-up housey hoo-ha for y’all.
No mucking about on this one - every tune’s a belter.
Guaranteed - big, meaty and bouncy, and firing on all cylinders.

Just mind the walls, will you?
We’ve just had them painted.

AbstractRadio session - october 2017

Dear Abstractionados,

Once again, we're clearing the dex ...

Something for every soul,
New 'n old.
Soul & funk, latin, dub & blues, drum & bass,
Funky grooves, afro sounds, broken beats & just a spot of german oom-pah.
All in all, a veritable feast of multi-cultural misappropriation
Distinctly unhinged in parts, in a typically AbRad stylee.

Hopefully, you get the idea.

Peas and love,

The Abrad Team

AbstractRadio session - dirtydiscodubs III - may 2017

Back by popular demand!

Before you all drift away on a summer reverie, here's another booty-shakin' bottom-heavy bonanza of disco noodlings and dirty dubbiness, fresh from the AbRad crypts.

Featuring a languid meleé of reworks of, among others, the O'Jays, Marvin Gaye, Roy Ayers, Bill Withers and Al Green, it's all jolly fine fare for long, lazy, sun-drenched afternoons.

Love, bees, birds and flowers,

The AbRad team

AbstractRadio session - april 2017

Welcome back friends, to the show that never ends - we apologise for our prolonged absence and, yes, we missed you madly.

To make up for it, we've knocked up a veritable feast of cracking little house numbers for you this time 'round, covering the whole schmeer: from funky disco to soulful us garage, deep house to bass-bin breaking barnstormers, even a little bit of old school. Plus there's a brand new tune of the week thrown in - honestly, it's hard to imagine anything more life-affirming than this.

Full of fulsome-frolicking-fun, frankly, every track's a belter - so, go on, turn it up, and bop til you drop!

[we will endeavour to make the next session's blurb cliché-free]

Love, peace and armadillos,


The AbRad team

Tune of the Week - No.10 - 05.04.17

With so much wonderful music knocking around here in the Abstract studio, we thought we'd take the opportunity to showcase a few very special items that are close to our hearts. Our choices for Tune of the Week may be fresh through the door, or decades old - our aim is that they will always epitomise the ethos of AbstractRadio...

It's been a long time, but boy has it been worth the wait...

Jill Scott & Terry Hunter - I'm Coming To You - House N' HD Terry Hunter & Mike Dunn Soulfrica Mix -
T's Box Records TB060

Show some appreciation:→

Released in mid 2016, and stuffed away on the backside of a digital-only remix package, this slice of joy almost slipped under the radar. And what a loss that would be, as it's easily the best thing we've heard in donks.

Crafted by Terry Hunter [and what a fine job he does], full of delicate rising chords, sublime backing voices, crisp yet slightly off-kilter beats and the powerful vocal talents of Ms Scott, this uplifting little ditty has been an end-of-night drop since someone left it at the draw-bridge here at AbRad Towers.

Unfortunately, it's a wonder if this will ever get the airplay and recognition it deserves. For instance, despite being an absolutely glorious anthem, it's not currently on y-tube [at time of writing].

But, fear not, dear listener, for we are here to rectify such catastrophic errors - well, as much as humanly possible.

And thus, we declare...

"I'm almost there!"

What a gem.

Sorry, there is no video.
Yes, it is a disgrace.

AbstractRadio - for you listening pleasure....
