WAAJEED, OVERMONO, RAMZI + STRATEGY top new music selections for this edition of ABSTRACT SCIENCE with hosts JOSHUA P. FERGUSON + HENRY SELF. JOSHUA’s set starts off with a few psych- and jazz-inflected downtempo cuts that lead into deeper house territory with a focus on Chicago and Detroit before landing on leftfield electronics hovering at 100 bpm. HENRY brings the tempo up in the second hour with ravey, broken techno, breakbeats, giving way to dubby ambient, and settling into a mix of deep house and techno.
