Chart positions

This show was 41st in the global funk chart, 45th in the global jazz chart and 69th in the global soul chart.

This is a mix I've been slowly putting together ever since visiting Saint Petersburg, (for the second time) to perform with Mr Armtone back in August 2014. Armtone took me to see local DJ, producer, collector and all-round lovely guy DJ Bazil between gigs during my trip. We only had an hour and a half together to listen to and pick out music, but he introduced me to some fantastic original recordings from the Melodiya label during that time. This mix is the result of that meeting.

Maximum respect goes to DJ Bazil, who I owe some first class swaps to in return! Also, thanks to Armtone for the hook-up.

ps: You may notice an interesting style switch in Oleg Kutsenko’s Kaleidoscope suite. This track hasn’t been edited by me, this actually happens on the LP itself!
