Highlighting our favourites like Elephant and a Barbar, along with more overlooked titles like East Plants and Tales From The Trees. We did miss out on a few titles that just aren’t on Spotify, but we hope you enjoy this short tour regardless!

Fresh Mints this time takes you on a tour through our more contemporary new arrivals that are tinged with hip hop, jazz, afrobeat, funk and soul. While certainly not including every single new arrival, it's nice little journey that touches on both the new music and the reissues we've recently brought in. Enjoy!
