DIGGS DUKE “Forgotten Treasures Mix #18″

Soul

Here is the 18th mix in our FORGOTTEN TREASURES series where we ask some of our favorite artists to make us a mix showcasing a few of their influences. We give them carte blanche to play anything as long as it’s very personal to them.

We are happy to present this one from DIGGS DUKE, one of our favorite soul artists (and multi-instrumentalist) to have come out in recent years! For the mix he even went as far as making an interlude to explain how these tracks influenced his newest record titled “The Upper Hand & Other Grand Illusions“. The record will be released on Sept 1st, make sure you pre-order that! (Link)

From Diggs Duke: “This mix represents the tradition of music that inspired my upcoming release, “The Upper Hand & Other Grand Illusions.” It’s comprised of records I collected from various friends and family. The mix was created as a result of my mother and I retrieving all of her old records from a storage facility.”
