Glyn Phillips’s monthly Overflow Show brings you the latest releases and previews forthcoming albums and EP’s from around the globe, covering soul, jazz, funk, fusion, electronica, experimental, future beats, house, latin, roots, reggae, world and more in two hours of non-stop music – perfect whether you’re chilling, working or getting ready to go out!
The Overflow Show airs on Brum Radio approximately the third Monday of the month between 8-10pm.
Immerse yourself in cuts from the latest albums from Cuba’s Daymé Arocena, Germany’s Wanubalé, Canada’s Heather Bambrick, France’s Kateb, Austria’s [dunkelbunt] and Colombia’s Los Pirañas. Balkan grooves come courtesy of Balkan Taksim, Central European fusion from Korjen and Canadian afrobeat from Surefire Sweat.
From the States Scott Kinsey pays tribute to Joe Zawinul and there are new selections from Ray Obiedo’s Carousel, Joel Harrison’s Stil Point: Turning World and Zac Zinger’s Fulfillment.
Glyn takes a listen to the compilation album Oonops Drops Vol 2 – with contributions from 45 aka Swing-O and T Birds and the Breaks – and checks out the return of Natacha Atlas, the posthumous release of Algerian rai rocker Rachid Taha and the welcome reissue of a classic 1979 Congolese album!
And if that ain’t enough, what about the deep-in-the-pocket grooves of Eddie 9V, the Brooklyn Funk Essentials, Jidenna, Raven Salve or the UK’s Da Lata?
Also check out Glyn’s flagship world music show, WorldBeatUK, which goes more in-depth into the music and the backgrounds of artists and genres! WorldBeatUK airs on the first Monday of the month and is repeated thereafter on Mondays at 8pm (unless The Overflow Show is on that week).
