Our first playlist on the revamped 22tracks is live. A compilation of tracks picked from our favourite reissues and compilation released this year. Working title was “Onda Sonora’s 22 re-issues and compilation released in 2016 and worth buying as a present for a loved one list” but somehow that only partially survived, haha.
