While I haven’t had a chance to put together my own personal “best of” for the year, my brethren at Bastard Jazz Records have made an excellent mix composed entirely of their releases from this year- plus a few snippets of unreleased material (including something from my upcoming Capt. Planet album). Starting off with some top-notch downtempo and future funk, the mix picks up and travels into some Caribbean and Afro styles, classic disco, and a touch of house as well. It’s impressive to see how much great material they’re putting out, and I’m happy to be a part of the Bastard familia alongside heads like Lord Echo, Potatohead People, Sol Power All-Stars, Starship Connection, Colm K and more. Props to my homies DJ DRM & Erik The Red! Check out the soundcloud page for a full tracklist and links to buy individual tracks.
