Welcome back to a brand new week and a specially curated Valentine’s Day mixtape special for those of you who don’t feel that love is in the air.
Expect 1972 tear-jerker funk, new woozy Israeli R&B and dreamy Scandi soul to give your heart a good tug.
And for those seeking out love this Valentine’s Day, we are bringing together a family of our most seasoned selectors (Rhythm Section, Atlas, Champagne Funk, Joy in Repetition) for an extra special loved-up party at Kamio in Shoreditch this Friday (February 10th).
Expect smooth R’n’B, rare soul grooves and v-ready emotional techno via tributes to The-Dream and D’Angelo – all-round baby making music. And with seductive lighting and plenty of dark corners for doing dark deeds, you can get frisky and steamy without judgement. PDA is highly encouraged, so bring your other halves, your lovers, your mistresses, your bit on the side. Head here for more info.
This mixtape was curated by Theo Fabunmi-Stone, one half of radio show Champagne Funk.
