Optic Echo Presents

Best Vinyl of 2019

Good morning and welcome to 2020. We kick off another decade with our annual tradition of celebrating the music of the yesteryear, by presenting to you our favourites and recommendations. There will be enough here to fill your shelves and empty your wallets, and all that is coming up in just a couple of days, but we open up our tribute with another vinyl-only mix by Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents, to tease your ears with his selections of this still-spinning format. If you enjoy this mix, make sure to check out others from the past, which go back to 2011, and yes, are still available for your listening pleasure!
