Last week Kon - renowned as half the DJ-ing/record collecting duo Kon & Amir - contributed a stupendous guest DJ set to Gilles Peterson's new BBC6 radio program. Consisting entirely of never-before-heard versions of disco and boogie funk classics remixed by Kon from the original reels, the mix has now thankfully made its way onto Soundcloud, and is yours to download gratis. These are the times when we've gotta thank our lucky starships the Interwebz exists. Much needed feel good music for a Monday, people. Listen and download, and peep playlist, after the jump...
