your weekly salon mix from thom.

This weeks salon mix instalment starts with a slew of hip-hop from a personal favourite, Phonte, as well as Ozay Moore, Black Milk, and Dabrye. Another personal favourite from the man behind Kamaal Williams, Mr Henry Wu. From there Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 makes an appearance, followed by a thumping edit of Gil Scott-Heron by way of DJ Vas, which leads into a couple of modern jazz numbers from Ryan Porter and Nate Smith.

Hade makes back to back appearances, touching on that classic New York 90’s jazzy hip-hop vibe, followed by a lovely rework of Donald Byrd’s cult classic, ‘Wind Parade’. From there we have a nice edit of a jazz/hip-hop sample from LA’s finest, J-Rocc, leading into Japan’s finest trumpeter, Takuya Kuroda, with a funky uptempo number, ‘Afro Blues’.

Half way’s through the mix sees a modern classic from Detroit’s Amp Fiddler and Manchester’s Trus’me, setting the tone for slower house numbers, gradually leading up to more dance floor material from the likes of Sam Irl, Simba, Serge Gamesbourg, Kapote, Harvey Sutherland, Hello Skinny, Neue Grafik, Thatmanmonkz, Nicholas & Nikki-O, Krewcial, Detroit Swindle and more.

Enjoy it, share it and check back next week for another rundown of our weekly sound.
