Another one of my favourite artists of all time: Mr Roy Ayers.
This mix has been a great way to revisit his extensive back catalogue of performance and productions, and there are some absolute classics on here.
I've left the tracks for longer than I've done on previous mixtapes because I really wanted them to breathe, and I've tried not to go mad with the scratching.
You might recognise a couple of tracks from a couple of my other mixtapes, but I've tried to mix them slightly differently... and I'm not going to miss out a classic Roy Ayers joint just because I played it before.
There are a couple of little blink and you'll miss them drops... keep your ears peeled!
Enjoy!
Props to Daniel Harvey for the picture of me and Roy from last year :)
