The Berlin based duo Oy, made up of Swiss-Ghanian multi-instrumentalist Joy Frempong and drummer / producer Lleluja-Ha, are a treat of a band and we've been hooked on their sounds ever since we first heard them. Oy offer a rich and intoxicating blend of music genres, from electronic and soul to jazz and African music, laced with Joy's engaging and quirky storytelling. So we've asked them to take us on an tour of the sounds that have inspired them and the resulting mixtape below is further evidence of just how versatile they are with genres.
When we first posted about the imaginative and enchantingly talented British composer and musician Poppy Ackroyd, we never dreamt she would one day get involved with our monthly mixtape. Since then, she released an outstanding debut album, Escapement, where she explores and experiments with the piano and the violin, mirroring her intricate relationship with the two instruments. Also, our dream came true and this month she picked and mixed seventeen stunning tracks, for your ears to indulge on.
