playjazzloud sessions vol. 56

This week's edition is a bumper edition featuring a series of labels that have had a great influence on my record collection. Coming out of Sweden the Raw Fusion label was the first one to grab my attention and then a series of labels spun off of that with the prolific G.A.M.M., Jugglin, Swedish Brandy, Spicy, Dicey, Soundscape and Homegrown. The one thing that unites all these is the consistent quality of soul, funk, latin, hip hop and electronic music they were and in some cases are still putting out. After digging through my collection I realised there's enough for 3 or 4 mixes so here is part 1 and look out for part 2 later on this year. I mean I didn't get to drop Red Astaire's "Follow Me," which is definitely one of my favorite tracks for all those labels put together. Enjoy. Listen below or download from here.
