Straighten It Out Mixtape

As one of the residents of Ali B’s legendary Funk & Soul weekly Saturday sessions at The Paradise, I wanted to put a mix together that represents the sound of early night to prime time. In the tradition of Ali’s great ‘Oh Shit!’ mix series, this mix gives you a taste of the packed dancefloor that goes off every week. Hope you dig it.
