You can't even begin to imagine how much we DON'T endorse Mixcloud. The site just doesn't fit with the publishing of mixes standard we've developped for more than 10 years at Paris DJs. Which is why it's very nice to see our collegue Todd Simon uploading his 'Jazz on 45' mixes on Soundcloud, with a full write-up, including all the art covers and a track-by-track commentary, available on Wax Poetics' website.

'Jazz On 45 Vol.2' features various sounds of Jazz from around the globe. Todd has chosen new and classic vinyl recordings on 45 rpm into one brilliant mix, including a rare Quantic 5-inch, an exclusive 10-inch acetate pressing of Todd Simon's Angel City All-Star Brass Band, Hailu Mergia, Hugh Masekela and more…
