Monday Morning Mixtape 389

Find balance in languid downtempo and sun-kissed jazz guitar to silky dub and electronic dream-pop.

This week is curated by Benjamin Smith, music publicist and manager at his Bristol-based agency Echo Empire.

In his words “Originally I was going to focus this mix on music I’ve worked on over the past ten years but that became impossible to narrow down to an hour (here’s a Spotify playlist if you want to go there). Instead, it’s based around not-work records, mostly from the past few years and a lot of pandemic purchases, that set the required mood for a Monday morning (or Sunday afternoon or Wednesday evening or anytime you need to take an hour out from everything for yourself).”
