Akwaaba, Fist Of Facts, The Incredible Funk League, Lack of Afro, Ashley Thomas and more.
What do you call a mix that kicks off with a lifting instrumental Afropop cut from Akwaaba, segues into Salvatore Principato’s post–Liquid Liquid dub-funk duo Fist of Facts, meanders through broken beat and Ian Simmonds’s lush “Diver” before finishing off with a jazzbo cover of B.B. King’s “The Thrill is Gone”? We’re not quite sure—adjectives like beautiful and killer come to mind—but that’s the far-reaching palette of sound from which Zhill selects, and that’s what he’s given TONY with this exclusive set. Zhill, a Lithuanian expat and cofounder of the mighty Bagpak Music—check out the label’s discography if you’re not familiar.
