AbstractRadio session - november 2019

Hail noble Abstractionistas!

Here lies seven decades of musical shizz, mashed down into just under three hours of mellow fruitiness.

Suitable for all environments, including kitchens, bathrooms, dining rooms, long journeys and waiting in queues for basic essentials.

Consider it a marmelised melee of funk, soul, grooves, dub, breaks, jazz, hiphop, trick tunes & blunted beats. There's something for everyone here, unless of course you have an aversion for fine music.

Love and echidnas,

AbstractRadio: for your mind, body and soul.

AbstractRadio session - august 2019

*** aka - the strange case of the unrelenting hi-hat ***

And lo, after many months' absence, the stranger returned from the mountains, laden with an abundance of great tunes.

And the golden ones rejoiced,
For all was good in the land [apart, of course, from all the usual stuff].

Here's the much anticipated, long-awaited and severely overdue companion piece to our last [mar 2019] session.
Consider it as a significantly bigger, badder elder sibling to the other.

Love and marmosets,

AbstractRadio session - march 2019

Welcome back to the groove AbRadders.

Here's our first housed-up offering of 2019 - consider this as a warm-up: a shot-across-the-bows, so to speak, an amuse bouche in anticipation of next month's blockbustering biggie!

Featuring, as ever, a compendium of upfront tunage on a deep and disco/filtered soul tip, with a fair amount of triple-deck [and sometimes quadruple] trickery thrown in to keep your ears toasty.

Love and ferrets,

The AbRad team

Giving the gift of music, whether you want it or not.

AbstractRadio mixtape - harley sounds - january 2019

Once upon a time, in a London far away, long before house music made the whole world jump up and down like lunatics, underground djs played a rarified mix of funk & soul, hip hop & rap called "rare groove".

Strictly for the cogniscenti, supported by a select few clubs & sound-systems such as the Wag and Shake n' Fingerpop, it existed far from the mainstream.
Only a privileged few - a small network of those in-the-know - had access to the djs & rare vinyl that defined the sound.
This was music heard nowhere else.

Good mixtapes were much-cherished & deeply inspirational - copied from friends & fellow music lovers, stretched & worn out through constant listening; some reached almost legendary status, many are now lost to the ravages of time.

One such C90 was "Harley Sounds", made by Dominic Weaver [thanks Paul!] in a flat on Harley Street in 1988/9.
We played it to death, to the extent that our copy is now unlistenable.

So, as a tribute to those halycon days, we've attempted to faithfully recreate it, trying to adhere as close as can be to our battered original.

We hope you enjoy.
