About 5 years ago I did a show with my son. He was about 13 roughly. I got him to play 3 tunes and I gave my opinions, then I played him 3 and he gave me mine (we played them alternately). I had a lot of great feedback about that show, as it’s about the passing of the mantle between generations. Now let me introduce you to my daughter…
She’s currently 13 and over the past year has got into trap/drill, but also in a wider sense, rap. And from that, Eminem, some of the other rappers that are more widely available (Drake, Kanye etc). But, she has also developed an ear for stuff that I like. There have been certain tracks that I have played that she has gotten into and one of those is played in the show tonight.
So we had a laugh for the first 40 minutes (this was recorded Sunday), then I was live to the world last night. Chatroom was in effect, views at 10 (and I went DEEP this week!), played some brand new cuts from the UK & US (special shout to B Line Recordings SPECIFIK with his new LP)
Then we had a couple of tracks, 1 including Haynesy, then went into the chatroom selection… Loving the fact I have now got the stream back to being reliable and this will be on the regular now! So, spread the word, leave a comment if you like this, or not, share, repost as you see fit, salute!

Being as Blade is now on social media I replayed this interview as he is writing some great posts on FB at the moment. Between myself and a couple of others we will be helping Blade get a proper website up and running with all the great pictures, videos and stories. He was in the chat room when this show was played, so when I say it’s worth getting in the chat, it really is!
More guests to come soon and all the usual downloads below…
Last night the first Disco Scratch Radio of the year aired and featured all tracks released in 2018 (except one which is coming out in 2019, but created in 2018!), all selected by members of the ABU FaceBook group. 20 tracks in total, I won’t flap on too much in here, just get your listening gear round the file below. As usual, all links below.
I’m hoping to be working locally for at least the next 2 to 3 months so should be back to regular live shows on a Thursday night from now on! The full tracklist with the names of the ABU members that selected the cuts is in the comments at the bottom of the post. Thanks to all the contributors, see you next week!

Streamed live on Thursday 20th December, accompanied by a couple of snifters of a little suttin’ suttin’, I sat with my elf hat on and partially open paisley dressing gown and got filled in with Christmas spirit courtesy the old boy Repo Claus… We always try to get as many people in the chatroom as possible… trying to get the balance right with a little bit of promo without tagging everyone and cramming it down your holiday road!
Repo & I like to think that if ABU! is your cup of tea, that you would seek it out yourself without us doing too much, however it’s always a little disappointing when we don’t get many live listeners… we have supported many people and websites, radio shows, music releases, events and so on over the years, yet for reasons unknown to us it doesn’t seem to be reciprocated.
Somehow, this post bringing you Christmas cheer has turned into a bit of an end of year moan! Oh well, take that brandy bottle by the neck, take a slug and sneak into your mum & dads room where you know they’ve hidden your Christmas present (like I did at Christmas, I think probably 1983 and completed the game and put it back in the box about a week before Crimbo, then had to look all surprised when I took the wrapping paper off!, shame on me!)
And so here is the actual show that went out live, it is hosted on Repo’s Hearthis page, so for the sake of statistics and keeping everything in one place, here’s the embedded Hearthis player. A download link is included within the player for you to grab it and throw it on your player of choice. Grab some eggnog, some Stölen and tune in… see ya next week for the Disco Scratch Radio end of year show… Tracklist in the comments.
This week I was stuck away working AGAIN with shitty Wifi. I knew I couldn’t broadcast live so I tried to upload this show 4 HOURS before 9pm and after 3 hours it was still only 50% done so I ended up abandoning it. I feel like a got damn stuck record with telling people I couldn’t do a show, however I’m job hunting at the moment and I won’t be working away from home then.
My work situation has in fact messed me up and now I can’t get to the NHS jam next week where I was meant to be DJing for Whirlwind D & Original One. This is a right shitter as it’s really the only jam I go to religiously every year, but real life shit gets in the way… what ya gonna do?
Anyway, hope you enjoy this rave from the grave show, it’ll keep ya going until I can get a live show again, which won’t happen next week as I’ll be driving down the fucking cunting bastarding M1 when I should be on air because of my work schedule, but something will be up on Friday…
Stream/download etc all links below…Details
Bloody hell the knowledge this bloke has is super deep. So we split the interview into 2. Thanks to everyone who joined in live last week for the show. Unfortunately I had a bad problem that arose yesterday that threw everything out the window, so when I should have been streaming I was driving down the M1 trying to get to Margate!
So anyway, here’s the show, back to live next week…
As always you can stream/download the show below, head to the Mediafire site and grab the show (just click the image) and other shows (I am building the vault), or if you prefer stream from Mixcloud / Hearthis. There is also an internet archive page here if you fancy that… til next week.
A member of ABU! Asked me this past week about an interview that I did with No Sleep Nigel. He had found an obscure reference to it on a forum somewhere. After a bit of searching I realised that even though it was broadcast back in 2010 it wasn’t available for download anywhere. I was a bit tight for time last week and despite my best attempts I didn’t think a live show was possible, so I thought it was a good time to reflect on this interview.
Part 2 will be broadcast this week and back to live shows the week after. Download/stream below, or grab from the Internet archive here: https://archive.org/details/DiscoScratchRadio25NoSleepNigelPart1
Or if you want to be a completist, it’s also on mediafire along with several others, you can check that out here:
OK, OK, it’s 5 days after it was broadcast, I had a few things to deal with over the weekend, so here it is… What’s that weird frog? WTF is he going on about? All explained in the show…
Waxy woo brings some new tracks along, has a good rant about “internet speak” that is affecting our beloved English language. Chatroom stuff, “Record reviews”, Ageing B Boys Unite special talking about the best intros to Hip Hop tracks, the usual stuff that sounds like dog diarrhoea being sucked through a sock. Recorded in Wales, streamed from Petersfield…
Wanna stream from these services? Embedded below… Or if not just download from this post… or you can grab from the web archive:
Tonight I’m in Trefeglwys, a tiny village near Newtown in Wales. Renovated Chapel actually, really nice. Got all my gear setup on the dining room table, all working well actually, despite some last minute problems with my shoutcast host disabling the stream, I managed to get a new one sorted and reprogram everything to work in time. Anyway, a pretty standard show, just getting back into the live swing of things after a hiatus, so maybe things will pick up …
You can submit tracks for the show at our new upload page: https://discoscratch.co.uk/upload just make an account and start uploading! We can also include your tracks on the 24/7 live stream, use the contact page or hit me up on twitter for more info.
