Simon’s Winter Mixtape

A Winter Mixtape

Above: The view from the Bella Union office on Curtain Road, EC2.

It may not be snowing, but it sure is cold today. What better way to warm you up than a lovely mixtape from Mr Simon Raymonde? Grab it from this link HERE, but grab it while it’s hot! You have a week from now. A few words from Simon:

For those cold mornings when you want hot chocolate, to stay under the covers and think about snowmen, kissing, holding hands, and how your new year resolution to stay in bed an hour later on cold mornings really was smart,  and for when you are contemplating what book to read, this one hour mixture will hopefully aid the journey…
