Slip between 2012 Manchester spiritual jazz, guitar field recordings from Niger and 1993 Brazilian RnB.
Welcome to a new Monday Morning Mixtape to start your week off on the right note. Today’s tape is curated by London DJ Bobby Myseh.
In his own words: “This mix shouts some of the smooth and emotive sounds I’ve come across over the last few years, often on the waves of London’s flourishing online radio platforms. It oscillates between different eras and experiences, way beyond my hometown, but ultimately returns to its grounding tones, calling on some of the voices that I think tell its story best.”
