With a new month comes a new guest mixtape, this time from Brighton's quintet Calico. The band, a set of incredible musicians complementing each other perfectly, bring together an extensive range of musical genres to create a unique and exhilarating sound. Their intricate compositions incorporate elements of jazz, electronica, folk, math-rock and classical to name a few. And reflecting this healthy eclecticness, the mix they've compiled for us is a gift that keeps on giving, filled to the brim with incredible picks.
This month we have the immense privilege of having Shabaka Hutchings pick some of his favourite tracks for our mixtape. The very talented clarinettist, saxophonist and composer at the helm of Sons of Kemet, the vibrant polyrhythmic quartet from London, takes us on a musical odyssey with tunes from all over the planet. His selection defies classification but it clearly points towards a lush paradise where reeds and drums reign supreme.
