Elektra Records Tribute Mix

Each month, we’ll be presenting a “Label Tribute Mix”, where we highlight some of our favourite tracks from each label we celebrate.

This month, we’re starting with NYC’s Elektra Records. With an array of talented artists such as Patrice Rushen, Leon Ware, Leroy Hutson, Starpoint, and many more, the Big Apple imprint was responsible for putting out a lot of quality music. It was a hard task to select one song per artist.

Tracks are selected by Albin and mixed by Walla P.
