MR BRISTOW: City Love EP (2016)

city-love-ep-mr-bristowNo roll in the hay for Mr Bristow then – since, as the title of his new EP announces, he’s clearly all about the City Love. And doesn’t he just cavort around in the sounds of the megalopolitan sprawl like a some sort of priapic production pimp!

MR BRISTOW: Funk & Soul Xmas Mix (2015)

Funk Soul Xmas Mix 2015 Mr BristowThe massive number of releases the monkey gets sent means it’s not usually possible to post the sizeable number of deejay mixes that get sent in too.
