From Nova

This mix is for Js.One’s birthday next week, a mix of the type of joints he has in heavy rotation right now, maybe something for a spontaneous dance party. However, like the title suggests, this is the “gift-mix” and is also dedicated to all VC and [astral projects] fans ’cause music really is the best gift.

Thanks homie, this one has definitely got me gassed! Next week’s show will feature some of the best in Japanese boogie, jazz, & bossa nova, and the week after will be a special show: Episode #79: Holiday For Soul Dance featuring Sun Ra for your holiday.
