The World’s Third Greatest Christmas Mixtape!

So … it’s that time of year again!

When former ITF champion and Melting Pot Music artist Marc Hype and I put together our first mixtape of funky and unusual Christmas music a couple of years back we had no idea what we’d gotten ourselves into. A couple of years on, we keep stumbling on more Christmas oddities, so, in what is becoming something of a tradition, here is the third installment of our annual Christmas mixtape: rather unimaginatively titled ‘The World’s Third Greatest Christmas Mixtape’. As in previous years, Marc and I have a produced a mix each which you can listen to on our Mixcloud pages or download from

Funk, Soul, Reggae, Ska, Hip Hop, Jazz and even a little Afrofunk, all with that Christmas theme! We hope you enjoy. Merry Christmas.

The first and second installments of the series can both also be found on our Mixcloud pages or downloaded from
