After a week long blind DJ date in the summer me and Cam had found some serious common ground. Many hours of Lover Rock, Street Soul and Slow Jams later I asked for a guest mix. Cam delivered an ever eclectic mix of genre crossing, lo fi, hard to find gems and some up front dance floor classics. A huge thanks to him, please check out all his other quality mixes on Mixcloud.
This mix is compiled from records bought in New York and New Orleans after a recent trip. Theres a good few records form artisits from each city and a load from in between. As always when buying in the states I’ve picked up a load of Gospel and Soul. Theres also a few more recent tracks but all in the same vain. Get blessed and enjoy!
Once again me and the Big DP got together and recorded a joyful evening of music. This time we got worldly, 3 hours of no western music. Staring in Japan we went all over Africa to Brazil, Columbia, Barbados, Trinidad, The Virgin Islands, Eastern Europe and more. Some classics some rare maybe some questionable, it was a long evening. Come get Outernational with us!
Happy New Year! Here’s some sweet soul and gospel to ease you all in to whatever it may hold for you, happy 2018.

It’s almost Christmas, people will be forcing bad seasonal music on you for sure. If you’ve had enough of it put this mix on and just say ‘its all Christmas music’ and that they don’t understand it or you. The mix can then be revisited all year round, bringing back warm memories of not hearing too much upsetting festive music.
It’s been a long time coming, but Vivandiere has finally delivered a exceptional mix of lo-fi love music. Love music is the best kind of music, hands down! Lots of old and new love sounds for these times we need them most.

No introduction needed really, possibly three of the best, certainly two of the best (sorry Janet). Either way, three of my favourite singers spanning genres, decades and wearing some incredible outfits. There’s a extra 30 mins as the great records kept coming!
Keeping things tropical, here’s a mix of Soul, Disco, etc from all sorts of wonderful warm places. Apologies for some records that sound like they were dug up on the beach and a few that are just super lo fi recordings, but the soul and energy is all there!

Back from a little trip to Brazil with some light diggin in Rio and Sao Paulo I’m happy to have a mix of new treats. With little knowledge of Brazillian music its not too deep or rare but an good entry level mix of Soul, Boogie and a few more traditional bits. I’m off to look for more!
This mix is well late! It’s a mix of my favourite R&B (and a hip hop and kind of dancehall track) from 2016. It’s been sitting around since December so has lost some relevance and currentness, but its timeless. Most of the mixes on the website are full of songs form the 70’s, so its fresh! With two tracks from both Joyce Wrice and Ella Mai two of my current favourites and the likes of Anthony Hamilton and Anderson .Paak, its a whole load of heat!!!
