YEAR TWO

 

cover 

Here at King Deluxe HQ we’re thrilled to have survived our second year in existence, and thought we’d celebrate it with another birthday album. This time freely downloadable to all.  Along with a batch of brand new originals from our regulars, we also invited a number of talented remixers to take their hand at some of our own personal favourites from 2012.

Included in the download below you’ll find both mp3’s and artwork, and below that some info and links from our small army of contributors.  Enjoy!
