1. Nick Defour presents Tahiti – 10/12/2017

The former frontman of trash-pop outfit Shethar, now causing havoc as prime ringleader in Stakattak, debuted his monthly show on The Word Radio with his signature blend of sweet-toothed provocation and boundary-breaking tracklist (think punk, Turkish psychedelic and spoken word).

2. Asa Moto – 08/12/2017

The Deewee-signed producer duo debuted their monthly slot on The Word Radio in pure style, going from 80s electronic and new beat to new wave and back. Slappy bass lines guaranteed.

3. Roméo Poirier presents Platform 1 – 07/12/2017

Full-time life guard and Brussels-based producer Romeo Poirier went all ambient, aquatic and marine for his debut monthly. An absolute bliss of a session, the perfect companion to getaway plans.

4. Doctor Vinyl presents Decadentia – 06/12/2017

Doctor Vinyl head honcho Geert Sermon treated us to an absolute scorcher of a mix for his debut on #TheWordRadio, taking us on a long-winded journey through the depths of Belgian electronic body music, techno and new beat. The mayor has spoken, and we cannot wait for his January session to drop.

5. Mika Oki presents Waking Life – 05/12/2017

The one mix that got everyone in the office to agree in unison. An absolute gem of a debut, with a tracklist to die for and a smooth, trippy vibe throughout. Essential.
