Thrilling music from the cassette deck of Brian Shimkovitz. Read more:



How would i expect the most brilliant listening experience in this mix? i can't stop replaying it, again and again. The way you, Brian, chose and mixed it and the way the singers perform is just so honestly straightforward, full of soul. It has gotten me. Thank you for choosing and sharing such good music.


Wicked mix, tusind tak. Any ID around the 35/36 min. mark please? The instrumental tribal tune with the mad trumpet. :) BIG
