Alongside the mighty Soul Lounge we decided to put together a mixtape for all the lovers out there. This is not the regular valentines mix you are used to though. This goodie bag is a lil special sumn’ that starts nice and easy and ends all wet wet wet! Spiced up with some xklusiffs, remixes and dubs this is the only soundtrack you need for your valentines!
Light a few candles, press play and let’s get ready to mess up the sheets.
