This week’s mix is another cracker from one of our favourite labels, London’s wonderful Spillage Fete. The Fete came to our attention via their most recent release, the golden Blowing Stones by Jam Money. We were taken aback by this quilt of homespun vignettes, which unfurls like some happily malfunctioning automata. Thankfully Jam money surface on this mix, alongside other ripply things of wonder, plus lots of Kit favourites and friends. Listen and grab a copy of Blowing Stones here. Words from Mat and Kevin below…
‘Myself and Kev have put together the mix for you, it’s a combined Jam Money/Spillage Fete mix, featuring music released and related to Spillage, alongside musicians/artists whom we love and have inspired our own music, a way of saying thanks.’
