Here is the second of two instalments using Non-English Language as its theme. There’s just as much variation in the music selected as in the first part that ranges from weirdy late-60s Brazilian cuts to big sounding production from French producers to stately ambient sounds and a number of African cuts from all over the continent. There’s further connective tissue besides and Producer Bod and I are really happy with the results. Hopefully you’ll dig it too.
Tracklisting w/ links to purchase, if I can find them (these are directly related to the artists where possible but not always). Also, I take no responsibility for the links. Just trying to help…
