Karel "Jah Charles" Best Of 2020

First and foremost a massive-thanks to YOU, all you boys and girls that kept us going! WE MADE IT THANKS TO YOU (big hug), keep on dubbing in a free world!

An extremely limited selection of personal 2020 highlights, be sure to also check Rolling Blackouts Coastal FeverFlying Horseman, Georgia, Aldolino, MDC, Molchat Doma, Fontaines DC, Millionaire, Khruangbin, Duyster (of course!), Zwangere Guy (respect!), Thurston Moore, Ansatz Der Maschine, Irie Ilodica, Dirk., AC/DC, Kosmo Sound, Bonobo's "Heartbreak" , Shabaka, Lianne La Havas, Monolord Empress Rising Instr (woeha!),  Alpha & Omega, Tom Misch, Brutus, Tame Impala, Growing Horns, Phoebe Bridgers, Koffee, ... and why wasn't Aafke Romeijn pressed on vinyl?
