Welcome to another brand new week and a brand new mixtape to massage you into your Monday.
Today we coast through 1930’s crackle-ridden Parisian jazz, 1970’s sun-soaked samba from a hill-top favela in Rio and a Detroit stoner folk cult favourite from 1975.
Alongside classic oldies from pastoral English folk icon Nick Drake and Japanese film score composer Ryuichi Sakamoto, expect an East Coast cover of Little Dragon’s dazzlingly haunting ‘Twice’ and a brand new steamy R&B slow-burner from Janet Jackson. Happy Monday!
