FATHER HICKEY

49

LA based photographer Father Hickey compiles some of his most treasured finds that frequent his head and often exit the sleeve. Hickey's interest in records commenced around his youth; scoping YouTube for samples to make Hip Hop beats as affording wax was out of reach. This mix contains some of the cuts that will be making their way on to Big Nice - a record label he is launching this summer carrying Jazz-Funk and Rare-Groove, sifted from 45s of the 70s and 80s. The project is dedicated to recovering, preserving, and presenting the unique and quietly sensational sounds in music that spanned the second half of the 20th century.
