Playing tracks by
Dif Juz, Elbow, Mexicans With Guns, Curtis Mayfield, Cut Copy and more.
The Dif Juz track that kicks things off this month is over 25 years old, but still sounds fresh and pretty timeless to these ears. It’s followed by a beauty from the new Elbow LP that I like to think will still be making its way onto a few mixtapes 25 years from now.
Tanka is a Bristol-based mate who has made his new EP available as free download - http://tanka.bandcamp.com/album/patterns-break-ep - highly recommended.
The Mexicans With Guns track and the Diplo remix of Sleigh Bells are also freely available.
The Phoenix Foundation was heard over the Rise shop stereo, the Rare Pleasure edit was on 6 Music, and the Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx are reworks that ain’t on the standard issue LP.
Add some New Order, Cut Copy and John Fahey and you’re just about done, leaving Soon E MC to wrap things up as he did a few mixes ago.
And you can never have too much Curtis Mayfield in your life.
