Elevator Afro Club #001

We are excited to introduce  a guest mix from Elevator selector Mikey Sibson. A member of purveyors of fuzzy beats and tropical island jams 45turns.com, Mikey also co-runs the Elevator Afro Club, formed from the culmination of cross-continental digging trips and musical connections, from disco to jazz and beyond, to present the finest in international afro-inspired talent. With this mix he brings you close to the Elevator ethos with a selection of plastic disc cuts from across Africa and Europe.
