We’ve just rounded the second quarter of 2020 and there have been an incredible amount of great releases, so we think it might be helpful to look back on the last three months. The spring months of April and May and the early summer of June have been very much focussed on music for me. Apart from the Apple Turnover playlist, we’ve aslo created a bunch of other playlists and our first mix – which was a joy to compile. We’ve bought a lot of new records and tried to support artists, labels and shops best we could. In Sweden there are small live gigs at a couple of venues again, and we’ve done a handful of DJ sets to seated audiences. But let’s get on to the list of who’s who of Q2.
