Thematic #04

27 March 2024


No prizes for guessing the overarching theme for this selection. So much stems from the African continent, through culture and music, food, customs, architecture.... humanity. For this though, the focus is on the music, the groove, the vibe, basslines to move to. This music is on my shelves behind me as I type, how else could I share some of the amazing music I've picked up over the years? If this music is new to your ears, I hope it takes you on a journey that leads you to digging for some more... it's a very rich and varied landscape and well worth your time getting to know what's out there.
