AIAIAI MIX 045
Born in the UK and based in Verona, Italy, Patrick Gibin started his label Blend It! Records in 2011 by releasing the first of his Black Aroma edits EPs under the moniker of Twice. His distinctive touch in editing obscure, often overlooked jazz-funk and boogie tunes is well represented by his releases on labels like Razor n Tape, Sounds Familiar and Salsoul Records.
Volcov's own words on the mix:
A deep warm selection to lift the spirit during these trying times!
mixed with love in Verona.

We created the series to promote and compensate musicians with new weekly mix releases on Soundcloud and Mixcloud - all curated by Benji B.
In an increasingly uncertain business of being a musician DJ or performing artist we wanted to find a way to contribute to supporting the music and nightlife scene.
The effort intends to equip artists to advance their creative and performance opportunities on a global stage, as nightclubs and music venues have largely faced ongoing closures and other restrictions internationally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
