I’m back from an amazing five weeks travelling around Vietnam and Laos, during which I made the decision to leave ASIP well alone and take a break from posting. I missed it like hell, and I missed an awful lot of good music these past few months, so here’s a recap of some of the best mixes which i’ve managed to catch up on thanks to sneaky Soundcloud favouriting and a shot-out to you guys on the Facebook Page. If you think I missed anything worthwhile, then please post it below in the comments.
I’m still playing catch-up on individual releases (so many) and will get some posts up on these soon. (post photo is taken from my trip to Vietnam – a rather strangely isolated rock amongst the 2000 odd of Halong Bay).
