MXTP MONDAY 14: ODE TO MOTOWN

It was a time of matching tuxedos, polished, choreographed moves, and a sound booming with soul; today we pay respects to Motown. This mixtape honours legends like Stevie Wonder, Kool and the Gang, and Aretha Franklin, with backup from some lesser-known heavyweights to hopefully broaden your interest in the genre. Big shout-outs to Victoria Weir, WATG Steve, and Obscurist Works for their input, and the Good Will for keeping the Motown spirit alive in Winnipeg.
