Curating and ordering the tracks for a Mr Bongo Record Club is always special. You're reminded of the feelings you had when sitting at home with a cassette player on pause trying to compile the perfect mixtape to impress the latest object of your affection, or that friend with whom you share a musical kinship and spark off each other's latest discoveries. Hearing old tracks for the first time or diving into the most upfront selections keeps the fires burning and passions alight. Here, for volume six, we present recent finds and treasured classics from Brazil, Sweden, the USA, South Africa, Portugal, Japan, Trinidad and Tobago, and Canada. This compilation is packed full of gems that are plucked from differing times and spaces, but somehow all gel together beautifully : it features tracks from Brazilian rising stars, sublime gospel, disco and soul rarities, and a Matthew Tavares nugget available for the first time on vinyl. We hope you love them too.
