Monday Morning Mixtape 236 –

Drift from 1971 jazz fusion to 1978 emotive Lebanese tones and 1986 Ivory Coast reggae.

This week is curated by DJ and collector Fantasy In Orbit, host of monthly Sunday show Mystery Dance, on Balamii radio.

I wanted to put a mix together that would sound great in the early hours of Monday morning and would also represent my deep-rooted love of world music and leftfield electronica. 

I recorded the mix using vinyl only on 2 x 1210’s and a mixer; keeping the tracks sparsely separated from one another linking them with snippets of experimental exotica. I must confess it contains some of my favourite Jazz, Brazilian, Middle-Eastern, Lo-Fi / Modal Space Rock, Library and downtempo electronic records of the moment.”

For more eclectic selection, be sure to check out Fantasy in Orbit’s new night alongside Radio Dao in an underground Streatham basement next month. Head down to Dao In Orbit – Sat 9th Feb, for deep and dance-ready, free-thinking sounds.
