We are back for 2018. Sorry for the silence during January – it’s been a very busy personal time. This month we are delighted to present a guest mix by Mike ‘BC’ Greenwell featuring “new picks, dance-floor favourites and rarities”.
Mike is a resident DJ at the wonderful 'Cosmic Slop' in Leeds and is a founding member of the collective. The parties are now in their eighth year. He’s played to the ‘Slop faithful in Leeds since the opening session, complete with a sling (as pictured!) after shattering his collarbone in a car crash in 2015! The regulars said he was better with the sling on...
Mike is a self-proclaimed record nerd of the highest order. While writing his 'World Treasures Music' blog and selecting stock for Tribe Records shop in Leeds, he is continually digging – this mix journeys through Africa and Japan, via South London, Brazil and Trinidad. He can also be heard bringing the heat at Dimensions festival and Tropical Disco Hustle this year and has recently returned from spinning in Japan.
“I’ve been a fan of Mr Bongo for years,” Mike said. “DJ’ing with you in Leeds was a blast and it was an honour to be asked to do a mix for you. I’ve kept the Record Club compilation theme in mind so here are some recent reissue discoveries, some gospel, some soul and some jazz, referencing countries where their music was introduced to me by Mr Bongo.”
Mike’s blog is at www.worldtreasuresmusic.com and related mixes can be found at https://www.mixcloud.com/worldtreasuresmusic/
'World Treasures Music' radio show for Kmah Radio is broadcast on www.kmah-radio.com and archived at https://soundcloud.com/kmah-radio/sets/world-treasures-music-w-mike.
