Friday Drive
Friday June 12th, 2020 with Trevor Walker
Abstracting

Have a nice mix of various grooves to feature for you on this week's edition of the drive. Exploring different parts of the albums featured on more recent shows as well as continuing the catch up of music accumulating in my "to be featured" pile of music. Keeping it pretty uptempo, moody and conscious with an extra half hour of content available on demand. Hope you enjoy it!

Hey David, It's Amadou Balake remixed by Ben Gomori or it's "J & S - i can't see", in which case I don't know the original song, unfortunately. Thanks for tuning in!

I looked into the bandcamp page for Forest Law. Will give it a listen. Thanks. After your show, i listen to Rickey Vincent on KPFA, the June 5th program. Actuality in sound and motion. All the best.
