Loosen up with 70s Afro jazz, 1980 US New wave, lovers rock and Ethiopean desert blues.
This week is curated by George Hartshorn, founder and promoter of the Leeds based party Brotherhood Sound System, and London’s The Tropical Disco Hustle.
In his own words: “Over lockdown I finally had the time we’ve all been dreaming of to go through and sort out all of my records. In the process, I rediscovered so much music I’d been collecting over the years which had been forgotten about or would only ever come out on the odd Sunday evening chill. To be able to bring them together and create a mix for Stamp The Wax was amazing, but whittling it down to one hour was very difficult as I had so much more music I wanted to share. I’ll definitely be recording a pt2 to put out on my own channels later this month.
I like to make my mornings slow so the first part of this mix is very relaxed with music for contemplation, but I appreciate that people need a little pick me up on Monday morning so I finished the mix off with some sun-drenched soul and lovers rock. Hope you enjoy!”
