Jan Kohlmeyer - Yuletide DJ Mix III

Jan Kohlmeyer Yuletide DJ Mix for Paris DJs

To be honest, Christmas music on earthly radio seems to be the worst in the Milky Way. Just imagine an alien picking up our radio waves on his journey through the galaxy - what would he think of our conception of Christmas music? Would he land on planet earth at all?
Of all things, this year it is planet earth that has something seasonal to offer - something the galaxy has never seen before. Galactic garden gnomes will surely have a fling to 'Santa's Funk & Soul Christmas Party Vol.2'. And all Martians will be snapping their fingers to the groove: Yuletide nerd Jan Kohlmeyer has put together another amazing collection of hip-shaking Christmas songs. Merry Christmas everybody!

Some of you remember mix 1 (still available here) that has been downloaded thousands of times(!). We asked Jan to contribute another exclusive mix for Paris DJs. Well, he gave us two more. Another 60min mix to promote Volume 1 of his CD series and this additional 60min mix featuring all of the tracks of Volume 2 of 'Santa’s Funk & Soul Christmas Party'.
