Welcome back to another edition in our Monday Morning Mixtape series; dissolving those pesky Monday morning blues every week with an hour of delectable golden grooves from around the world.
Today we have an extra special selection courtesy of London-based DJ and party thrower Liam Klimek (aka Celeste London). Situated in the heart of Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel, Klimek’s All My Friends parties have become a staple consumption for groove-addicts and dance-floor divas in London. Line-ups over the last year have included 22a boys Tenderlonious and Reginald Omas Mammode IV, Throwing Shade and Boiler Room head-honcho Thris Tian.
This Friday will be the 11th instalment in the party’s history, celebrating summer’s approach with Soulection‘s Hannah Faith, NTS host and general vibe-smith Hector Plimmer, as well host Celeste London bringing those warm vibes to the dance floor.
In light of the upcoming knees-up, Celeste London has put together this morning’s mixtape in a similar vein to Friday’s golden beat affair; coasting through dusty 1970s soul, 1950s West Coast cool jazz, hip-hop from both sides of the Atlantic and some uncovered electronic gems to devour. Expect sounds from Andrew Ashong, Al Green, Chet Baker, Knxwledge, Donald Byrd and more.
Head to Facebook for more info on Friday’s event (June 5th). Entry is free so RSVP now at firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow @liamklimek & @allmy__friends to keep up-to-date with future parties.
