Mix of the Day: Andrew Ashong “The Vinyl Factory Mix #1”


via The Vinyl Factory: The Vinyl Factory are excited to welcome multi-talented producer, musician and Sound Signature graduate Andrew Ashong to launch our vinyl-only mix series. Having burst onto the scene in 2012 with the summertime jam ‘Flowers‘ co-produced with Theo Parrish, Andrew has this week released his self-titled follow-up EP on Which Way Records, a downtempo soulful three-tracker rooted in 70′s analogue soul and informed by Andrew’s incredible record collection.

To mark the occasion, Andrew has provided us with a 90+ minute mix spanning a gorgeous breadth of Brazilian groove, electronic jazz, funk and boogie, recorded live at Something In the Attic in December.

Being a vinyl mix series, we’re asking each artist to put their mix in a bit of context, talking us through their ideas and introducing a few of their favourite tracks and the records from which they’re taken, which you can peruse below while you listen. So, without further ado, over to Andrew…” (Read the notes by Andrew Ashong on Vinyl Factory)
