The Collective

The Collective was first and foremost a group of DJs who have a bi-monthly party at the Lord Clifden in Birmingham.

Now it has now grown into a weekly radio show on Brum Radio, which incorporates the night’s ethos & musical direction.

Join Tom Belte, Steve Thornton, local DJs and guests to explore different music and talk about it. It’s essentially a chilled out show where the music goes from hip hop to Detroit techno, back to disco, sprinkled with funk. In its essence, a crate diggers kind of kick back.

This week we have local hero Rob J to provide the fourth instalment of our ongoing mix series. Rob J is a DJ’s DJ – music lover, vinyl digger, good guy and a well-known face in Birmingham and beyond. He has chosen a 60-minute selection of records ranging from reggae, Boogie, breakbeats and forgotten record store basement finds. Rob also runs Endless Summer at Cafe Artum.

We also have new music from labels NuNorthernSoul, Hellyeah! records and Music From Memory. Tom Belte will be looking after the first hour as per usual with Rob J taking over for the second hour.
