Tomorrow I leave on vacation to London, England. To prepare myself for what I hope to be an overload of rare groove and jazz dance record digging, I've assembled a little playlist.
Expect regular mixes and playlists starting in November, as we start two new monthly series.
History Homework will feature playlists mustered up from my own shelves, while Substitute Teachers will spotlight guest deejays with exclusive mixes.
