Radius Etc. calls Chicago home but he spends more than half the year traveling time and space to share his unique sound. He is the founder of Etc. Records. He gets right to business by adapting to his environment and turning ON! Check his Live PA followed by an interview with the crew!
ABF aka Abstract Butta Fingaz aka Mbela is a long time friend. The Chicago born producer, raised in Cameroon and Nigeria has been out here on the West Coast. He shares a set of his own unique sound in the world of lo-fi, international hip hop making big noise with past releases on his Zypher UNlabel, Bonding Tapes and more. Radius Etc. and Mbela both landed on a recent release with CulturePower45. Automatic Gain Control Vol.3, Mike Styles opens the show, slow and low and Subira ends with a classic hip hop set. Gabe Real, our studio host, joins the conversation.

Producer Max I Million (https://soundcloud.com/max-i-million) has put together an amazing conceptual mix transmitting live and worldwide from Stockholm, Sweden to Pomona, CA. He’s done official remix work for the likes of CL Smooth, Edo G, Planet Asia, Kev Brown, and Masta Ace. “I also worked with Promoe from Looptroop Rockers and ADL, who are about as close you can get to Swedish Hip Hop legends.” Max’s last release was on an instrumental cassette called Beats, Mines & Life, where he shares space with Ayatollah, Khrysis, M-Phazes and Nottz. Look out for his latest drop with Chuck D, Bishop Lamont and Mykill Miers on Counterweight Records. His right hand man Chapee intros the mix on a track the two previously collaborated on. “He’s a real master of ceremony, and I’m usually that cat in the background who speak with my music.”
Mike Styles opens the show with a short mix featuring new music from Makaya McCraven, Co. Fee, Sumohair and SUPERSAN. Gabe Real seals the deal with a dj buffet and a blast from the past when he reunites with a scratch record he pressed and released in the early 2000s.
