* Life´s what you make it… *


The title, taken from an old talk talk 7″: “Life´s what you make it”, the hardly known b-side is featured here in the mix, is the theme of this easter 2014 mix:

It´s a tour de force through 65 years of music and genres in 65 minutes starting with a 50ies mahalia jackson gospel and eroll garner´s slow piano blues, to jmmy mawi´s 70ies madagascar soul, calypso from ti paris or the lecuona cuban boys, indian bollywood dance tracks by bappi lahri, filmmusic from otto preininger´s exodus soundtrack, 70ies soul, 90ies and 2000 lo-fi folk and indie classics by bonnie prince billy, migala, sebadoh or sr. chinarro, slowing down with horace andy´s dub and finally being in the present again with recent tracks by cody yantis or kevin morby.
