Welcome back to another wintery week in 2016, and a brand new Monday Morning Mixtape here to warm your body and mind for the week ahead.
Today’s mixtape is extra special since it falls on “blue Monday” – statistically the most depressing day of the year! We’ve worked extra hard to curate an hour of audio vitamins ready to battle off any dejection you might be feeling this morning, so cheer up, hit play, feel better.
Coast from 1950’s West Coast cool vocal jazz to a 1990’s Japanese Romantic piano sonata, stopping off at Libya for some 1970’s psychedelic Middle Eastern desert disco groove. Alongside dusty old rare gems, expect new R&B sounds from The Internet’s front-lady Syd and a dangerously contagious jam from Baltimore new face on the block Beya Likhari. Happy Monday!
