If you were a fan of the ‘Grazia!’ LP on Fortuna Records last month then this selection will be right up your street. When the guys behind the label were in town they stopped by a couple of staple institutions to play some tunes, and the mix that Zack put together for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label is now available to listen to.
If you head over to the Worldwide blog you can either listen there, download directly here, or if you aren’t already – sign up to the podcast series in full.
