FvF Mixtape #16

Our longtime friend and collaborator Ilan Rosenblatt dug deep into his musical history to compile this exquisite 16th edition of our mixtape series. We met this veritable French rap addict during his extended stay in Berlin around 2003 while he was working at Rio, Berlin’s legendary club in Mitte. This is also the place which this Parisian native claims to have broadened his musical spectrum.When he moved back to his permanent base in Paris, we soon thereafter began to shoot some of the great FvF videos with him as our Director of Photography and videographer – you can watch his work with Akroe and Joseph Dirand). We are looking forward to an ongoing collaboration in the years to come. Enjoy this superb mix with a distinct local flavor: From Axel Bauer, Expression Direkt and Jaques Brel to Para One & Tacteel, Koudlam and Horace Andy.
