Monday Morning Mixtape 320

Ebb from smooth 60s soul and 70s reggae to candid 2020 rnb and uplifting 90s gospel.

This week is curated by London wordsmith Brother Portrait.

In his words: “I wanted to bring mood, message and movement. I went to a few places, sounds like all the ways I’ve felt recently. I found myself writing narratives so followed that trail. Making space for some reflection, reasoning, truth saying and belief, and elation. So new and old songs that take me to those places right now or show me where I’m at. Hoping it helps others to sing and dance it through the body. Blessed to know some of the folk in the mix too.”
