Fresh Beets w/ Undercover

Back by popular demand is another vault of fresh beets! First up we have the rusty soul sounds of Myron & E, Booker T Jones and Mayer Hawthorne. Next up we drop some vibey mellow jams from Moonchild, Omar and Tall Black Guy then some loopy loops from DJ Mitsu, Moods, Knxwledge and the man of the moment Ta-Ku (pictured) whose output over the last few months is nothing short of amazing (could do a whole post on this guy!). We finish up with some jazzy hip-hop (the way I like it) with the return of J Rawls, Ohmega Watts and some local New Zealand styles for your ears with The Side Steps Quintet, Oui Groove (YGB Crew) and a freshly pulled beet from Ben Jamin with slick vocals from Raiza Biza, Melodownz and the stunning Bailey Wiley.
