As you know I’m flying next 15th of January to Tokyo with the objective to spend a year over there. 2013 should be an exciting year.
To prepare such a big travel, I had to digitalise as much as possible my collection as I can not carry my records oversea.
For this task, I returned to my “campaign home studio” (where I made the 70’s Groove & Reedits project 2 years ago) and during this period I went back through a lot of old Cd compilation (mostly from the amazing BBE label)
I realised that I missed so much quality music by the past !
So here a quick mix of gems I enjoyed during this session…
Don’t be fooled by the “Ultra 80’s introduction” by Fatback, this mix bring you smoothly through different genre and era of music, going back to the 1960’s to finish on today records. All happy music !
