Here's the third in my annual series of chilled out mixtapes I've been putting together for my Dad's birthday, which I thought I'd share with you all too.
Much like the last two volumes, this is a blended selection of jazz, afrobeat, reggae, soul, funk & more, featuring stone cold classics by the likes of Quincy Jones, Nina Simone, The Specials and Sergio Mendes, as well as more contemporary joints by the likes of Kamasi Washington, Alabama Shakes and Fat Freddy's Drop.
It's the perfect soundtrack for chilling out, but with a hint of early night or daytime dancefloor grooves too. And if you're a bit of a sample-hunting nerd like me, you'll enjoy playing spot-the-sample in a lot of these tunes as well...
