V/A – We Love Jalapeno! VOL. 2 (Jalapeno Records)
Back in 2018, Jalapeno Records released the first of its We Are Jalapeno compilation albums to celebrate the work of all the amazing artists that make up its eye-popping and jaw-dropping roster. Here in 2020, the imprint returns with volume 2 and whilst it’s celebrating it’s rostered artists in all their glory once again, it’s also delivering 20 tracks of the very best feel-good Funk, Soul and Breakbeat on the planet for free! We’re absolutely certain that news will be greatly welcomed and appreciated at a time where things are tough both mentally and in the pocket for many because of the predicament the world finds itself in currently. Added together with the first album, a combined total of 39 uplifting and day-making tunes can be downloaded so that they’re yours forever and they’re quick and easy to get at as when you need them.

Amie J, Izo Fitzroy‘s – Reckoning, Lack Of Afro‘s remix Drive Me Wild by Alexa Coley, Gizelle Smith‘s – Ruthless Day and Dr Rubberfunk‘s – Bombay Bossa.
