REPOST REPOST REPOST!!!: JBX "Thanks For Waiting" - Exclusive Secret Rendezvous Mixtape!

Has it already been a couple of years since I posted this gem? This one had blown my mind, and a lot of other minds around the globe from collectors to people who just want to hear beautiful music. I just saw some of my homegirls (Javybz) in Moscow reposting, and it reminded me of what a great mix this is. This one deserves a proper Secret Rendezvous repost for sure. Here is the original post:

Jared Boxx a.k.a. JBX of the world-famous ‘Big City Records’ record store here in the Big Apple just blessed Secret Rendezvous with the "Thanks for Waiting" mixtape. Jared has been one of the east coast’s most consistent record dealers over the past 10 years, honing his trade in New York’s well known ‘Sound Library’ before moving on to open his own boutique store in Alphabet City, Big City records. Jared also lit up dancefloors as one of the main DJs spinning rare tunes at Bumpshop, NYC's favorite rare funk and soul 7" party, and continues to drop vinyl heat Tuesdays at Savales in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

"Thanks for Waiting" is a magnificent mix of independent records, ranging from mid-tempo steppers, to slow tunes and dancers. All the records on this mix are bound together by their independent spirit, and ambition to produce lush recordings dripping with soul, while on a budget of course. This one is really special, I didn't know a lot of the tunes on here, and the ones I do recognize are only a painful reminder of how bad I need them in my collection. So sit back and soak up the tunes forgotten through time and limited resources, finally brought to our ears by JBX...


Tracklisting coming soon!

UPDATE: I just re-upped the download link, enjoy!
