ROMARE guest mix; new music from PESSIMIST, BONOBO, THE BUNKER NYC, CLOSE UP OF THE SERENE; plus DAVID AXELROD + JAKI LIEBEZEIT in memoriam selections on the latest ABSCI podcast, hosted by CHRIS WIDMAN. WIDMAN begins the program with a favorite DAVID AXELROD composition–the oft sampled composer, arranger + producer passed away a few days before this program was recorded–and a pair of early hip hop/electro classics, picked up from detroit’s PEOPLE’S RECORDS. following this short mix, we have a special dj set from NINJA TUNE recording artist ROMARE, recorded live at smart bar chicago in december 2016. ROMARE is a uk producer + dj, whose cut n’ paste approach–inspired by harlem renaissance artist ROMARE BEARDEN–has garnered critically acclaim, and extends to his handmade album artwork + the collage of soul, funk, disco + house in the mix. WIDMAN continues the program with new music selections + an interlude featuring the influential CAN drummer JAKI LIEBEZEIT, who also passed away in january.[aired 16 february 2017 on WLUW 88.7fm chicago]
