2021, Album, Further Listening, Joseph Shabason, LP, Mix, Mixcloud, Mixtape, Playlist, South Records, The Fellowship -

Joseph Shabason is a big favourite of ours here, mixing Fourth World ambience with woozy ECM jazz - think Jon Hassell and Harold Budd covering John Martyn's Sweet Little Mystery and you're on the right track. We asked Joseph if he'd make us a Further Listening mix (following on from The Reds, Pinks & Purples from a few weeks back) and he delivered an absolute beaut, a mix of songs that have excited him in the past year.

Then we read the great story behind it, finding that Simon Tong - an unassuming friend of a friend (who also happens to be a member of The Verve, The Good, The Bad & The Queen and The Magnetic North) was involved.
