While on production for our magazine we get to meet a lot of old and new friends in New York. Amongst the old ones is our good friend Jamal Dixon who delivered us his current favorite tracks. Jamal describes himself as Newark Born, New York Reared, Turntable Lab Scientist, APT Resident, The Standard Boom Boom’s Original and The Americano Conductor. He sent us this fun and diverse selection of tunes from Nina Simone, Twin Shadow, Kanye West & JAY Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Warpaint, Sonic Youth and Marianne Faithfull that, in our eyes, represent New York’s spirit to the fullest. We hope you’ll enjoy the mix as much as we do.
Also a big thank you to our friend Gabriel Kuo for letting us use his picture from Le Bain.
