More about this show
  • FUNK
  • JAZZ
  • SOUL

Mates’ Crates is about sharing the stories behind music, whether the story of how a record came about or how we came to love it. 

Hosted by writer and DJ Andrei Sandu, Mates’ Crates was born out of an infectious curiosity about the who and the why. Just like Andrei’s column for Melodic Distraction Magazine, the show is a Sunday morning journey through funk, soul, disco and beyond, from which you’ll always come away with something new.

Andrei is back for Christmas day for a festive edition of Mates' Crates!
