Mixtape #122

We are thrilled to have Bandler Ching kick off the year with our first mixtape of 2021. The Brussels based quartet, led by composer and saxophonist Ambroos De Schepper, swept us away with their effortless and groovy blend of contemporary jazz, electronics, hip-hop and noise. Their sterling first EP, Sub Surface, came out last autumn and with a debut album set for release this year, it’s a given that Bandler Ching will be making a splash in 2021. So it's with great joy that we present the phenomenal mix they put together for us. Feast your ears on this!

Mixtape #72

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.


Mixtape #49

Earlier this year, we were stunned by the new album from Bristolian quartet Get The Blessing. They won us over with their wonderful blend of sounds drawing from jazz to pop and electronica. So this month we've asked them to put together our mixtape and even though they were busy (and still are) touring Europe, they obliged. And we're sure glad they did, press play already!
