Start spreading the news, this is a live mixtape using vinyl & serato to celebrate NYC! HoBoJoBo and I went to NYC late last year and haven't been able to get the amazing city out of our minds since, so I thought I should make a mixtape of all the music from Manhattan which has shaped us over the years. It's a mish-mash of hip-hop, indie, jazz and more and like the city itself it's a bit rough round the edges.
Props to the bands and genres that didn't make the final cut from my crate Dizzy Gillespie, Yeasayer, Miles Davis, TV on The Radio, The Raptre, John Coltrane, Grizzly Bear, Run DMC, Dirty Projectors, Battles, Duke Ellington, Animal Collective, Fun Lovin' Criminals, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Sun Ra, Talib Kweli, Nas and so many more; in fact I might have to do a NYC jazz special looking at that list!
Enjoy & if you haven't already make sure you make the trip to the city that never sleeps! MK x
