Welcome back to a brand new week and another fresh Monday morning!
Today’s mixtape features a mixture of classics and obscure gems, along with several memorable recent releases. Coasting through 1970s rainy Detroit R&B, colourful Kenyan folk/electronic crossover sounds and the silkiest 1970s French soul.
Early on we hear the sweet sounds of legendary Studio One organist Jackie Mittoo before moving onto new tracks from Kurt Vile and Natalie Prass. Later on, listeners are treated to a funked-out Connan Mockasin and Dev Hynes collaboration as well as some hip hop and California soul. Happy Monday!
