Mukatsuku - Afro Tropical Special

Mukatsuku Afro Tropical Special

Hot on the heels of releasing a 45 re-edit of the now lengendary Brand New Wayo track from Nigerian band Mixed Grill, Nik Weston will be playing this thursday at the Jazz Attitudes party in Paris. "A venture into afro bizness featuring some rare tracks from the holy grail Mixed Grill album plus a lovely track from the recent Ebo Taylor album and a smattering of unreleased afro edits" was the pitch of this mix posted on mixcloud earlier this year. Here's the same mix with some nice remastering for the delicate Paris DJs ears!
