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.
On the day they release their debut album, Fires in the Park, Benin City offer us this month's mixtape. With a mix that wanders from soul jazz and hip hop to electronica and many other genres, the vibrant London based trio show that their versatile sound, filled to the rim with rhymes, beats, horns and synths, takes root in their eclectic taste. Enjoy the ride!
