Jimmy Monsta Funk – What’s A Year Between Friends? 6 Hours of Wax Released in 2015

Jimmy Monsta Funk never stops blowing us away. Last year’s live sets, rave year tributes (1991) and insane levels of record appreciation across the board showed why he remains as our favourite DJ.  We’ve been sitting on this for way too long, and will or won’t be adding to it to complete the track lists on the last three sections depending, but it’s definitely overdue for sharing. Over six hours of mixing, music as it’s meant to be, wax only, JMF on 2015.

12 months ago the process began to put together some vinyl only mixes showcasing the best tracks (IMHO) that had been released, re-issued or slept on until I came across them during 2015*.

A further set of 40 winks occurred until the mixes were completed in March of last year, the files were then sent to the Awkward Movements HQ in August and an additional bout of narcolepsy plus a couple of months in winter hibernation (with a family tortoise, in a cardboard box filled with hay) went by, but we can now release these to you, our ever patient listeners……….

* The wait for 2016 best joints will not be this long I promizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
