One of the things that I really enjoy about creating mixes and podcasts is that I get to go through the crates and pick out tunes I don’t usually get to play out much. Some of my most favorite tracks are those slower soul love jams that just melt you away with every listen, but end up taking a back seat to something more uptempo for the party. The next mix is a compilation of just that…15 bangin’ soul love songs from the vinyl vault, which make up the second installment in the ‘Tough Love‘ series.
A big Shout to Boule at Consortium Distributions and Brian C for being dude. If you’re in the Montreal area, CD quality versions of ‘Tough Love 2′ are being given away with purchases at the Consortium Pop-Up Shop on St. Laurent until the month’s end. Grab’em before they’re gone.
Enjoy the mix!
