Float from Japanese ambient and Swedish folk-jazz to US soft rock and Australian synth-pop.
It’s a new year and the beginning of good things (we hope). To help with that intention we’ve got a fresh mixtape to start you off in the right way. Today’s mix is curated by Rosie Ama Cain, STW and Ransom Note editor and one half of DJ duo Kiara Scuro, who hold down a monthly show on Balamii radio.
In her words “We probably all need our spirits raising after last year, but I must admit I’m not really one for overly cheerful tunes. Instead, this mixtape is full of soothing, uplifting and hopeful music for reflection — and for daydreaming on your first day back at work.”
