Bring That Beat Back: Gift Wrap Christmas Mix

gift-wrap_800A bunch of years ago, I did a mix to commemorate my December residency over at The Ace Hotel in NYC. Gift Wrap is a funk filled holiday jam with everyone from Bootsy Collins to John Holt to Carla Thomas to Busy Boys and more. I figured I would resurrect this thing again for 2016 in case some of you haven’t heard it. It’s something to play while you are opening gifts, trimming the tree, drinking spiked egg nog, or watching the yule log burn bright. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it. It’s a good mix of funk, soul, hip hop, and reggae getting down for Old Saint Nick. Santa’s got a bag of soul and much, much more.
