Coast from 1993 post-bop jazz and 1977 dub to 1976 modern soul and zouk.
This week is curated by Jethro Curtin and Lachlan Stuckey who run Melbourne-based cinematic soul label College Of Knowledge Records, in addition to being core members of the label’s central project and supremely talented band, Surprise Chef.
In their words: “This mix is a brew of meditative, cinematic jazz and uplifting ‘modern soul’, featuring a handful of new and forthcoming tracks from the College Of Knowledge catalogue. These pieces strike a balance of reflectiveness and positivity, two qualities essential to a peaceful and productive Monday morning in our household.”
