Awesome Tapes From Africa – Boiler Room Session

In case you missed this the other day, Brian of ‘Awesome Tapes’ fame was in the Boiler Room over the weekend treating us to a daytime selection. The selection is as eclectic as ever, and the whole set was put together on one double tape deck.

An added bonus of this particular session is that Brian was considerate enough to treat those watching to a track list of sorts, simply by putting the case of each tape in full view of the camera whilst the contents was in use. Something which I am sure did not go un-appreciated by the viewers.

If that is something that appeals to you, check out the video below. Alternatively there’s a soundcloud link for the less geeky among you. Either way, it’s one to savor.
