24 HOV Mixes

24HOV Mixes: DJ ASMA (Montreal)

Soul

Here is one of our favorite mixes from our 5th edition of 24 Hours of Vinyl. Our frequent (and amazing) collaborator ASMA was on his first appearance at the 24HOV and he stepped up in a major way!

He played a morning set and the selections were just sooo perfect for the setting and the mood. It’s more about the selections than the mixes cause mixing on the rotary Rane mixer we had ain’t easy for everyone. But again, the genius in this mix is all about the tracks.

All vinyl baby!
