AbstractRadio session - tribal riddims 2018

And now...

More large-scale cultural misappropriation from the world's number one abstract radio station

Adhering to a vaguely afrocentric tip, the AbRad elves have delved deep into the world of tribal rhythms, serving up a pile of fresh stuff, plus a few oldies thrown in just for kicks.

So, close the curtains, turn the lights down, take your shoes off & turn up the sound.

As ever, we'd like to mention those who helped in the making of this rather splendid session, but at the moment we're having problems finding the door.

Love & djembes,


The Abrad Team

AbstractRadio session - joey negro 2018

Dave Lee aka Joey Negro aka … well … he’s enough aliases you begin to wonder whether he’s on an Interpol list.

Regarded by many as a national treasure, clearly deserving of a knighthood, plus a fine wearer of hats, Dave’s definitely worth making a song and dance about, so we did just that.

With the highest of hi-hats, lush strings, soaring vocals and disco sweeps aplenty, here’s some proper all-time gems from the vaults - at least six never leave “the bag”.

Sound quality’s not perfect as there’s a fair amount of battered old vinyl in the mix but hopefully you’ll forgive us.

Love and glittery disco-balls,


The AbRad team
