Welcome back to a fresh new week and a brand new mixtape to ease you into your morning.
Today we roll through modern classical, 1992 South African choral harmonies to 2014 deep Nigerian soul via a Chicago brass band and melancholic Manchester RnB.
This mixtape was curated by RANGEr, a new project from Alan Abrahams, better known as Portable and Bodycode. Alan releases his debut RANGEr EP on Waella’s Choice, dropping 26th Jan. Pre-order and listen on Bandcamp.
