Nostalgia 77 Mix: Relics

"Relics" mix by Nostalgia 77 by Wax Poetics

Ben Lamdin (aka Nostalgia 77) has a nice mix of tunes from some of the prominent artists in the underground London jazz scene; it’s a timely mix with our Jazz Issue on the horizon. Relics features tracks from his own label, Impossible Ark, as well as Babel, Loop, Grundle, and Ninja Tune, providing an cross section of the sounds of contemporary jazz in London including a couple unreleased gems such as “Dandelions” by Kaz Simmons and “Elephants” by the Skeletons.

"Also check out the new Nostalgia 77 single, “Simmerdown."
