This week from Oki-ni mix series we have Bjujeria by Jahcoozi. Compiled and mixed by Robot Koch, Jahcoozi’s Berlin beat-maker, BRUJERIA is a mix of Jahcooz’s influences blended with a few of Robot Koch’s childhood favourites. As a result, James Blake, Jamie XX and Mount Kimbie meet John Coltrane, possibly for the first time ever.

This mix is also bound to a very specific place. The place is Mexico. As for the reason, we think it’s best to let Robot Koch explain for himself:

“I produced a lot of stuff for my upcoming album in Mexico, and while I was on tour in the States. I like working far away from home; I get the best ideas when I get out of my box.

“I also made this mixtape while I was Mexico. I called the mix BRUJERIA, which means witchcraft in Spanish and is also the name of a song I made with my girlfriend, Graciela Maira.

“This song is featured in this mixtape. You will find John Coltrane here as well, who was a huge inspiration for me back in the day. There are also some current faves like James Blake, Jamie XX and Sampha, as well as some of my latest productions, like my collab’ with John Robinson. And there is also a nice Ramadanman remix of a Jahcoozi track in there, which will drop on BPitch soon.”
