I'm a little late to this - but excellent. Knew quite a few tracks already, fabulous to discover new ones though. Certainly helping me get through my accounts this afternoon. Sunny regards from Liverpool !

So glad you enjoyed the mix! I've been on a 70s kick lately and I think I'll have to do a 70s berlin school mix soon just to keep the vibe going. Cheers!
