Music, Please! is a weekly radio show and sound project curated and performed by DJ Hush. The show has evolved out of Hush’s long history and experience as a DJ, promoter, Music PR and radio maker (having been on Subcity as a regular contributor for almost 10 years). And an out of intense love of music. It strives to be an exploration of musical possibilities, a meditation on themes of identity, politics, semiotics and queer culture, a dimension for the disruption of (some) norms, an introduction to unknown and amazing sounds and artists. Its also an on-going interrogation of what a “'mix' is, or of what a 'DJ' does, or how music might, at times, be differently formulated for listening outside of the club experience. Its always fun, honestly, though maybe that doesn’t sound too fun. The structure of the episodes is created each week through track/sound selection and manipulation along with dialogue fragments, special EFX and pitch variations, beat-mixing and track blending. Or not, it really depends.

"Shoo-do dee dee, Dee de-de bap"
I've never been able to come back because i have never been away. My weekly invocations continue without interruption. Following on from an edition of vocal folk otherness, this weeks episode is a gathering up of leaves in mid-autumn, a drifting day lost through nature of the city, musical poems for the happy expiring of summer.
"Where are the songs of spring? Ay, Where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too," - Keats
A selection of eccentric pop vocal and instrumental fin-de-balèaric sensory gems, spanning 80's crystal-clear pop, heart-beat paced cosmic dubs, dread beat and Japanese fusion, glorious stadium synth-pop, now-sound Glaswegian dream sound, deep electronic ambience, wide-eyed naive italo, bouncing Highlife from Ghana and hypnotic Ju-Ju music from Nigeria.
A mood-swatch of inspirational and relaxation musical delights to cruise through a bright crips day in late October
It is an ear-focused prescription, the perfect prescription. This is a small joy, please take it to your heart.
Love & Light
