AbstractRadio session - december 2018

"Do you like music?"

Just when you imagined things couldn't get more messy, the AbRad elves have emerged from their yurt with the second half - the "main event" - of our back-to-back end of year sessions.

With a passing nod to the god-like Mr A. Humphries, here's a joyous excursion into the realms of quality house music, featuring the odd old favourite jockeying for position alongside a bunch of fresher dancefloor cuts.

To quote the great Errol Brown, everyone's a winner, and there's too many to mention anywho.

Love and oncillas,

AbstractRadio session - november 2018

Like the veritable bad penny, Abrad's back!

Here's the first half - the "warm-up" - of our back-to-back end of year sessions: a seductive smogasbord of funky soulful jazzy disco house, with something old, something new & the occasional thing "blue".
Nowt too deep, nowt too noodly, with stand-out tracks from Loop Jacker, Tinrush, Pad Berryl, Selace and David Penn.

Not to say that everything else isn't pretty damn fine as well.

As ever, hallelujahs all round to all the artists and labels who keep the underground house vibe alive.

"If you don't love it, you're gonna fail."

Love and pangolins,

AbstractRadio session - sure beatz workin' - october 2018

Dudes and dudettes - once again, it's time to annoy the neighbours!

Following on from the arcane silliness of our "Dem's da Breaks" sesh back in 2016, here's another bumpy ride into the deeply dysfunctional domain of funky breaks and blunted head-nodding:- a tightly packed selection of trick tunes and suchlike, with guest appearances from otis redding, james brown, the beatles, candi staton, sly stone, lionel richie, kate bush and gwen mcrae - sounds like a cracking dinner party guest list, if nowt else.

Love and manatees,

AbstractRadio - not without a little bit of drama here and there.

AbstractRadio session - august 2018

Welcome back and all that.

Here's the second stint of this year's AbRad back-to-back summer sessions, where we find those deligent AbRad elves slipping deeper into club mode, providing all you fine citizens with a heavier, more rinsed out affair, suitable for all your dancing needs.
Culled from a crate of recent ass-shakers, this session leads on directly from the previous [sesh. 26], and features stonkers from the likes of the Cube Guys, Mambo Bros and Funkatron, along with an instant classic from Beth Ditto and a generous helping of old-school club reworks.

You lucky beggars.

AbstractRadio session - july 2018


This, the first of a couple of back-to-back summer sessions for the year, brings you a not-too-heavy-on-the-ear, voice-drenched round-up of some recent goodies to warm y'selves up with. The results? A veritable panoply of top tunage with gems from, amongst others: Doug Willis, David Penn, Sophie Lloyd and Roland Clark, plus a fair few reworkings of some belting club classics from yesteryear.

Finally succumbed to the irresistible charms of AbstractRadio?

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
