AIAIAI MIX 046
DJ and selector SelassieTBC is the co-founder of London label Pattern Sounds and is one half of Brownswood’s Future Bubblers team, on a mission to unearth and support some of the best up and coming talent through both ventures. You can always expect an eclectic selection with a soulful feel, either from his DJ sets or his NTS Radio show.
Selassie TBC's own words on the mix:
"I wanted this mix to be a bit more dance focussed than my radio shows. I usually take a laid back approach on NTS, so took this as an opportunity to express myself in a different way and delve into a couple sounds and pockets that people may not necessarily know me for. Starts familiar, but goes to eventually goes elsewhere - it's all part of my musical taste. Plus end of lockdown is on the horizon (in the UK) so let's turn it up a bit."

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.
