Ghent based restaurant-cum-dancefloor Amigo has invited some of their extended family members to curate a series of mixtapes, dedicated to make you feel just that little bit more hungry. And willing. Today’s episode is handcrafted by Aso Asin.

He’s an Antwerp based DJ who’s into collecting and sharing music from all corners of the world: from ’70s jazz-funk and progrock to ’90s hip-hop and electronic music. As a DJ, Aso Asin has shared the bill with celebrated artists such as Shigeto, Om Unit, Clark, Jameszoo, Kutmah, Selda, Omar Souleyman, Lefto and Andy Votel. His guest appearances on Drrrip, Kiosk Radio, Studio Brussel and The Lot Radio in New York showcase his versatility.

Besides his activities as a DJ, he’s also one of the founders of Champion Sound, a Belgium based concept that serves as a platform for promoting talented, local beatmakers.

In his own words: 

August is usually the month I get to travel in. Due to Covid-19, I won’t be able to do so this year. I know many other people are in the same situation, so I thought: let’s go on an imaginary vacation trip: starting in Anatolia, ending in Africa and of course, a bunch of stops in between. I cherrypicked songs that go well with this steamy, hot weather.
