The Record Crates United Mixtape – Episode 77

To be honest, the dismal news we’ve been getting from around the world has been getting to me lately, so I spent an extra long time crafting a mix that would cheer me up. My hopes that if it could raise my spirits, it would do the same for all of you.

Presented in a slightly different format (no host segments, every song flows into one another and various samples crop up throughout the soundscape), this episode is a mind-bending mix of psychedelic space music, jazz-funk fusion and cosmic electro vibes. These 92 minutes were designed to get you off this planet, so kick back, smoke somethin’ good and enjoy.
