NIGHTMARES ON WAX, MOOR MOTHER, KOKOROKO + CHEZ DAMIER feature on this ABSTRACT SCIENCE episode focusing on black artists in electronic music, hosted by JOSHUA P. FERGUSON + HENRY SELF. JOSHUA heavily favors deep house sounds with some definite Chicago love, switching this up at the halfway mark to explore black artists from across the bass music spectrum. HENRY SELF takes on a diverse global perspective, touching on artists from the UK, South Africa + Detroit while traversing UK Garage, techno, leftfield pop + afrobeat.
