Guest Mix #49: J.A.W (Berlin, Germany)
When we ask some of our worldwide friends for a mix or contribution we always give them an absolute carte blanche. We tell them they can be as wild as they want, in part because we’re proud to have an open-minded base of readers & listeners.
What we’re always hoping is for something personal and truly unique. There are enough mix series focusing on “the hot new shit”
Well, what we got from the French born & Berlin/Paris collective known as J.A.W is definitely a very daring and unique mix. A trip around rare & trippy grooves of all kinds and eras. Listen to it with an open mind and you will discover tons of juicy nuggets!
