The ABU December Takeover Show - RETRO SPECIAL **TONITE**

It's the last Thursday of the month, it's the last Thursday of the year...... it's only right that we push the boat out and make it an end-of-year-special, no?
Yoink that booze, prepare your comfiest easy chair and strap those headphones to your ears.
As always, the two websites you need to be at by 9pm tonight are of course:

For the audio -

And for the chat -

If you can't make it then hold tight as the download will be up very soon after the show has been broadcast.

Really hope to see you in the chatroom.......

Happy Xmas! / Future Radio Xmas Hip Hop Sessions

I want to wish everyone who visits ABU! a great Christmas and hopefully you'll be getting a least a couple of days rest.
Thanks especially to the following blog-readers and generally nice people....

Agent Finch


Howard G CRAZE

Irish Craig
DJ Just-1
DJ Laz-e

Mex Luthor
Mr Eps
Mr Poindexter
Paranoid Parker
Patti 'A'

Rob L
Ric Flair & The Strictly Business lads

Tommy B
Whirlwind D

And if you think I've forgotten your name, I haven't, 
you are just too cot-damn important for this list x

While I'm on, here's the full 2-hour set from last Tuesday evening that I guested on at Future Radio's Hip Hop Sessions Christmas Special.
Just-1 and Mr Eps did the first hour or so and I did the remaining time. Christmas and hip hop don't traditionally go together so my collection of Crimbo hits is a little sorry to say the least so I apologise. I did burn a cd crammed with Christmas stuff that I was going to use as well but for some reason it played up after I'd dropped my Xmas Intro. Maybe I'd just put too many files on the cd-r? I dunno, I'm not used to Pioneer CDJ's really.

And don't forget that next week is the last Thursday of the month, in fact, of the year so ABU will be dropping the monthly podcast on you. And being that it's that weird time between Xmas and New Year where each day just blurs into the next (or is that just me?) I have prepared a special Retro Special to keep the holiday cheer going.

Thursday 27th December, 9-11pm Disco Scratch Radio.

Merry Christmas everyone and have a Happy New Year.

2012 World Championship B-Boy Battles in Rio - Live Stream

The 2012 World Championship B-Boy Battles are happening today and it is the finals.
Broadcasting directly from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, be sure to check out this page to watch the live stream here on ABU!

Live: Starting at 7:50 p.m. BRST / 4:50 p.m. EST / 1:50 p.m. PST on
In UK terms that means 9:50pm... I think. I'm assuming "BRST" means Brazil Standard Time which is 2 hours behind Britain.

The No Half-Steppin' Xmas Jam 2012

As I've mentioned a few times previously, this month sees the return of the No Half-Steppin' Xmas Jam.
Blasting beats out of Norwich is the Sure Shot Productions crew on 15th December at a free event in The Rumsey Wells in the heart of the city.
Doors open at 6pm and they will rock and don't stop - well, until midnight anyway.

Here's some shots of last year's event:

Live acts performing are ORIGINAL ONE (aka Def J), Solid 'n' Mind's own MC WHIRLWIND D (with Chrome on the wheels) as well as CHROME & ILLINSPIRED.
Resident dj's JUST-1 and CHROME provide some beat-bombs with support from MR EPS and REPO.
Remember that No Half-Steppin' only drops the classic hip hop steez so 'waiting for the good joints' is not an option.
And like all NHS nights, it's completely free.
See you there!


The November ABU Takeover Show

Slackness alert.
The show went out last Thursday but I realised I hadn't posted the link up yet (although the Facebook crew will already have it). Oops.

2 hours of freshness, boogie beats, ill drops, some comedy turns from The Jerky Boys and Micky Flanagan as well as yours truly in the mix. There's even a hint of Christmas about this month's session as well. Gobble, gobble.

Oh yeah, I realised my mistake about Jan Hammer's past musical endeavours when it was too late. Blame old age for that ;-)

Tracklisting as always is in the comments below.
