Swing Easy Ep 2 Nov 2017.
November’s Spotify playlist has some artists I have only just discovered. My friends are always introducing me to new sounds – which i love. Bands like Junip & Bahamas are some new additions to my every day flow. A friend of mine embarked on a crazy project to combine the music of Cuba and Jamaica. He managed to assemble some of the best artists in both countries to collaborate. The album, Havan meets Kingston has finally dropped. The Cuban standard Chan Chan with Sly & Robbie laying down the riddim has a great feeling. Enjoy. Feature Tune >> Learn Yourself – The Beautiful Girls. They are touring right now celebrating 15 yrs since releasing this album. I loved the simplicity and rawness of these recordings – still do.
