This compilation is stuffed full of tunes that make me smile, music is a constant for me throughout the ups and downs of this lockdown – and what a moment to really listen and listen again to old favourites and new finds.

Beulah Heights is the DJing outfit from London-based Rosie Bright. During the day she works in historic building conservation but revels in her nighttime passion of DJing, coming home to the music. Beulah Heights is a lover all of all things groove and soul. Electronic music makes up a big part of her record collection. She says, “a house beat always gets me dancing as much as a funky bass line will always make my ears prick up!”. She’s spending her lockdown fine tuning her skills on the decks and making compilations for others to hear.
