There are different ways to unpack this playlist. One of them is approaching it as a travelogue taking us to the music incubator that is Chicago; to a scene deserving wider recognition in Washington D.C.; to Brazil, France and Italy. And it all starts from Free Form Funky Freqs' 3rd Galaxy.

Happy listening!
