OK OK we know. You smashed it a little hard over the bank holiday weekend and following on from topping yourself up with a double rum’n’coke at 11pm on Monday evening, you’ve been crying into your keyboard for the last day and a half. Luckily we predicted all this and pulled together a selection of melodic, rousing tracks to get your blood pumping and your head nodding again. This is our ‘Kill A Comedown Mix’, from us to you, covering off Afro, Disco, Funk, Soul, Jazz & Melody over the course of a sweet hour.

All these tracks should be relatively easy to find, so here’s the loose track list we wrote when prepping the mix, but ask us if you can’t find anything. Enjoy!!

This is a selection of Trinidadian music, Soca, but not Soca as we know it today.
There is no EDM or contemporary groovy or power in this mix, it is a pre 90’s selection that shows off the Calypso, Soul and Disco side of things.
It shows Trini’s abilities to use a fantastic array of synths and live instrumentation to produce wild and wonderful music that is totally unique.
The records have been collected in Trinidad on various digging trips, and from many enjoyable years living on the beautiful island.
Many thanks to the Rhyner Sisters for their help, support and knowledge.

BLBC #1 is the first in our new monthly mix series. Recorded using only the vinyl that we spend an age digging for, just so we can share these amazing tracks with you.

Enjoy.
