TASTING NOTES 6 MIXTAPE by Andrew

It's too weird to write about myself in the third person so here we are. I have made the 6th instalment of Tasting Notes whilst thoroughly enjoying a bottle of Yetti and the Kokonut's Fruit Basket Block 2021.

I started DJing around the age of 15 (strictly Hip Hop back then) and by the time I was 18, I had hooked up with a young rapper called Genesis Elijah and we started releasing mixtapes that showcased other up and coming rappers from the UK. We toured all over the country, a couple of places in Europe and even performed at Glastonbury (which I still bang on about to people now). Later I went to work for Universal Music and met a few people who had an incredible knowledge and taste in all sorts of different musical eras and genres and it really broadened my mind and made me start listening to and appreciating much more beyond Hip Hop. I started a club night with a friend called CYOA which took place at Dalston Superstore, Ridley Road Market Bar and a few other places. The general idea of the night was to theme music around a different global location each time. It was fun!

I've always had a thing for anything "tropical" so this wine seemed like the perfect opportunity. Obviously a wine made by someone called Yetti and the Kokonut brings a lot of these things to mind instantly (it was really hard to only include one song by Kid Creole and the Coconuts for example) but also the wine itself, being a crazy cocktail of 13 different grape varieties helps push that feeling even further. So it's a fun affair but not cheesy or too in your face. A bit like the wine itself. Enjoy!
