Sunny Sunday Selections
An hour long vinyl mix recorded on a sunny Sunday afternoon in London. Perfect for chilling out to, whether you’re at the park soaking up the rays or stuck inside doing less entertaining things. Starting off with some beautiful Japanese spiritual jazz and US instrumental gospel, we quickly move into a quick span of tropical disco, soul and funk. Please enjoy, and don’t forget to follow us on Mixcloud, Facebook and Instagram!

Aaron L with Chris Webb (Kalita Records) (Worldwide FM, 24/04/17)
Last Monday, I was kindly asked by Aaron L to join him for the second half of his Worldwide FM show to have a mix and talk about our upcoming release on the label, NST Cophie’s’ ‘Bian Kou’ (http://www.juno.co.uk/products/nst-cophies-bian-kou/642119-01/). I played a solid hour of West African boogie and disco, a mixture of anthems and lesser-known rarities. Give it a listen!
Kalita Selections 001 (16/04/17)
In celebration of Kalita Records’ first release (the three choice tracks from NST Cophie’s 1980 private press Ivorian disco record ‘Mon’Da Center’), we’ve delved deep into the Kalita vinyl vaults and recorded a mix focused on the West African (excluding a couple of great Zambian tracks) disco and boogie sound. During the mix we travel from Nigeria to Ghana, from Mali to the Ivory Coast, and from Cameroon to Zambia. We hope some of the tracks are new to your ears, and that you enjoy the (vinyl-only) mix.
Champagne Funk with Kalita Records (17/03/17)
Had the pleasure to be invited by the Champagne Funk guys Alex and Theo to play on Balamii a couple of weeks ago. Decided to play a solid West African OG vinyl disco/boogie mix, in celebration of our first release, NST Cophie’s ‘Bian Kou’ (which incidentally is the first track I play), hopefully out in May. Some of the tracks you may know, others hopefully will be new to you! Either way, all are favourites of mine. Alex and Theo play a great set for the first 1hr 5mins or so, then I have the pleasure of joining. Check it out!
