Chicagoan DJ Alvin Black III previews his upcoming World Whisky Day mix with this little sampler.
I’m not much of a drinker, but when alcohol does pass my lips, it’s either cider or whisky (in the form of Jack Daniels). The distilled beverage is so popular, in fact, that it has its very own day; World Whisky Day on 18th May. To commemorate this fine tradition, Alvin Black III has put together an Afros and Whisky mix, which will be released on the day. But to get us into the “spirit” of things (see what I did there?), he has uploaded a quick 4:30 sampler on Soundcloud, with some fine selections from Robert Glasper, Nas (remix) and A Tribe Called Quest. Word up.
