“I’ve been listening to the Electronic Groove mixes for a very long time (maybe even 15 years) so it’s an honor to be asked to record one! I focussed on creating a bit of a journey rather than just including lots of new and unreleased music although there are a couple in there. There’s music from myself, Roy Rosenfeld, Tim Green, Chloe Caillet, Liva K and more. Hope you like it!” – Jim
