This little mix just came about while digging through some recent purchases with an eye on the upcoming Everyday Hustle night. It wasn't planned at all, it just emerged from the crates by accident, more or less in this order. There's funk, highlife, soukous, disco, mainly 80s with a bit of 70s stuff.
