New music from DJ POLO + NKC, HIRO, LUSINE, K-LONE, GLUME + PHOSSA, SLOWDIVE + more, in this extended ABSTRACT SCIENCE podcast (combining episodes 1278 + 1281), hosted by BILL BEARDEN aka WHOA-B + HENRY SELF. BILL begins with a mix of african-inspired UK club + grime. For the second hour, HENRY moves from downtempo into EBM, synth-pop, + house. BILL continues with the uptempo vibe for hour three, with a set of house, garage and breakbeat. HENRY closes out with a bit of shoegaze + psych-rock, before leaning into disco sounds. Another double header that sounds like it was made to go together. [aired 24 August + 19 September 2023 on WLUW-Chicago 88.7FM]
