J-Squared & Hudson ‘Things We Like’ Breakin Bread Podcast

BB Sept 800px

I got together recently with my dear friend J Squared to do a special podcast for Breakin Bread where we basically went in and played a load of records – things we like from all genres. Music from Organized Konfusion, Solange, Adrian Younge, Graham Nash, Jay-Z… there’s over 70 tracks on here! This was so much fun to do and hopefully you’ll enjoy listening to this as much as we enjoyed making it.

Big, big shout out to Skeg, Steve The Sleeve and the Breakin Bread fam (who are going to be celebrating their 15th year in October – click for details) and of course J Squared – we definitely kept it one hundo on this!

The full track list is available on Mixcloud and on the podcast info on iTunes.
