The Sound Travels Tropikal mixtape from Sunday. Music from tropical countries was the aim; mission accomplished. Mostly older cuts, but I did manage to get some newer cuts in toward the end of the mix. A big inspiration for the mixtape came from the latest Mr. Bongo's release, Brazilian Beats 7 which is set for release next week and endorsed by this guy. If you missed the mix, here it is in its entirety...
