Best of 2018 - Michael Schulman of Slumberland Records

Following on from the selections of Simon Raymonde at Bella Union, here are the picks of Michael Schulman founder and chief of eminent Oakland label Slumberland Records.

In the past year we have featured the likes of Peel Dream Magazine, Rat Columns and Papercuts who are all in the present Slumberland cohort.

Michael says of his selections “It’s been a great year for London’s jazz scene, especially where it intersects with the city’s always great house/leftfield DJ culture. Good times! “
