This Corona stuff really sucks ey! Since we might all be bound by borders for a while, we’d like to come together and share some happiness in the shape of a playlist or mix!

Be “Safe & Sounds” and wash your hands!
From Latin to Afro via Reggae, Hip-Hop, Drum’n’Bass and beyond, Count Bassy is never short of beats to make you move your feet! Shaking dancefloors from Glastonbury to Fusion festival and in clubs across London and Europe, his sets are all about good vibes and big tunes, with a healthy dose of bass of course.
Perhaps one of the festival’s unsung heroes, Count Bassy is likely better known behind the scenes than in front. From 2015 to 2019 He curated around 25 festival stages each summer at some of the UK’s top festivals (Glastonbury, Shambala, Boomtown, Lovebox…), programmed hundreds of live acts as part of top music event production squad Continental Drifts! Unsurprisingly he is also a fantastic DJ and, with his Drifts colleagues, has started regular Global Beats Club nights in London. He also ran the NPO project Global Local supported by Arts Council England, championing cultural diversity with emerging bands from the UK World and Global music scene and produced the London Remixed Festival.
