Ho ho ho here we go. KNOTORYUS loves christmas and so should you. Family gatherings round a glittering tree is a lot more fun when you're snuggling up together with the right musical stylings in the background. So here's a nifty lil' christmas mix I dug up by DJ Riko, featuring The Jackson Five, The Ramones, Belle & Sebastian, The Fall (covering 'Jingle Bell Rock'), Brian Wilson and even that hard to find Soulwax cover of the Wham! classic 'Last Christmas'. Full tracklisting & some Soulwax news after the jump.
