Hosted by and

Dig into rare grooves and funk out of Ukraine from Odessa-based DJ, producer, and crate digger CJ Plus — also founder of pioneering Ukrainian BigBeat label Odbeats — as we share cuts from his record “Ukraine in Grooves.” 

Plus, we’ll hear the latest from Jianbo, who hails from South London and comes from the grime rap pirate radio culture. In addition to his unique sound, he celebrates his Chinese and Vietnamese roots with his fascinating wordplay riding the beats. His new single “Mongkok Madness” finds the emcee teaming up with new wave jazz great Kamal Williams for a soothing double time heater perfect for your Thursday.
