Monolith Cocktail playlist XXIII

Previously only ever shared via our Facebook profile and on Spotify, our regular Monolith Cocktail Social playlists will also be posted here on the blog itself. With no themes or demarcated reasoning we pick songs from across a wide spectrum of genres, from all eras – though we have of course made some considerations for the summer. It is our imaginary dream radioshow playlist, or if we get the chance, a healthy mix of the tunes we’d play out live if we were djing.

Volume XXIII features bongolian pastiches roaming large in Africa, intoxicating concertina dance from Cape Verde, angry black voices from contemporary and old America, kooky French electronique and a host of other equally eclectic and exotic curios.
