Urban Nerds Mix Of The Week | My Nu Leng
This week the exclusive Urban Nerds Mix Of The Week comes to you from My Nu Leng. This Bristol based duo have continued to go from strength to strength with a whole host of releases and their ‘Elite’ EP on the massive Black Butter records imprint. The pair took time to drop Urban Nerds an exclusive mix and we thought we’d add it to the Concrete PR mailer and blog.
