New York’s Bagpak Records has been on my radar for quite a while, being the home of names Yellowtail, Nubian Mindz or Arch_typ. They were so kind to send me a copy of their upcoming compilation Bagpak Selects Vol. II, which I believe is set for a release in late February.
Being familiar with the above mentioned artists I was expecting a dancefloor-oriented record, but to my suprise the CD starts with three straight jazz tracks. Turns out, this is a versatile collection of both new and up-and-coming artists from North America, ranging from hip-hop to soul, jazz to broken beat to house to afrobeat.
