The Mixtape is where invited musical guests compile a C60, and talk us through their selections.

Wellington based instrumentalist and DJ Mike Fabulous started performing as a teenager, going on to join the band The Black Seeds in the late 90's.  Since the early 2000s he has been making reggae and afrofunk tracks as Lord Echo and has collaborated with Lawrence Arabia as half of Fabulous/Arabia.

In his mixtape he takes us through a variety of afrobeat, dub and psychedelic songs that inform his new album, Curiosities.
