This very special TFIB mixtape comes from across the pond. Anon, a UK based producer and DJ, created this sweet mix, a combination of his personal faves and his own compositions. It’s got a little bit of everything, a degree of eclecticism that I have always valued in a mixtape. It begins from the start: Michael Kiwanuka, a soul sensation out of Britain, keeps it mellow until we get into a dabbling of UK electronic music and funky classics. The variety (from Lapalux, Shed, Gold Panda, even Carly Simon) is consistent, head-bobbing, and straight up enjoyable. Sprinkling his own tracks in between it is even sweeter, a unifying flavor. As he puts it:

The mix is in preparation for a long overdue summer – I’ve been getting wet listening to some dark stuff for the past few months so I thought it about time to crack out some oldies and make a decent mix for the journey to Secret Garden Party. At the end is a new tune of mine which is lined up as the first proper single, on wax, proper label and all that. I would love to find an artist to collaborate with who might feel like making a cover for this and hopefully future releases. To work with to create something great!
