On Vacation III

At the start of November I managed to get the opportunity to have a much needed week away in the sun. A week wasn't really enough, but then I guess that is a normal sentiment considering how grey, cold and damp it often is in my neck of the woods.

The two previous 'On Vacation' mixes were made just prior to going to the USA, hence the title. Even though this holiday wasn't to the States, I think the title will stick for all mixes I make around a trip away.

I promised before I left that I'd post up a tracklist for anyone that is interested so apologies for just getting round to it now. 

There's a good chance the next mix I put out will be a very chilled out vibe, so if that sounds like your cup of tea, keep your eyes out for it in the usual places.

In the meantime, here's On Vacation III and that linked up list.

'Unwanted' is a selection I recently put together with the intention being to try and share it via a different outlet from those which I have been known to contribute to. Sadly, the offer wasn't taken up, so I've decided to post it via the usual methods.

The tracklist is below the player as usual, everything has come from vinyl (apart from track #16) that I've picked up from the excellent Ed Davies from Disque 72. If you enjoy any of the tracks featured, please support the artists and consider going via Ed.

Hope you enjoy the selection!

Summer Slowdown

I've been championing the cause of Hearthis.at for a good while now. Mainly because I've been keeping a close eye on events surrounding Soundcloud and I felt that this clampdown on DJ mixes and Edits was coming. In all honesty, I'm surprised it's taken this long for the shit to really hit the fan. Until the most recent batch of Sony strikes and subsequent account deletions over on Soundcloud, it was pretty slow over on Hearthis. Things are really beginning to pick up now though, and in future I will be embedding the Hearthis player on the blog, rather than the Soundcloud player.

If I'm being totally honest, I do still prefer the Soundcloud interface, although I still wish we had 'Classic Soundcloud', and I will likely keep my feet in both camps (as well as Mixcloud) for as long as my Soundcloud account remains open. I'm sure like many others, it's a matter of time before I am forced to jump fully into the other hosting sites, and who knows how long those will last?

As a way of kick-starting the new focus on Hearthis, I put together a wee chillout mix at the weekend, and as is the way of things, it was unplanned and played live. Please support the artists by picking up any of the music you may enjoy from the mix.

Network Guest Mix - September 2015

The first time I bumped into Matthew Foord on this world wide interweb thing was after he had left a series of very warm and complimentary comments on my 'Is Anybody Listening?' mix, 2 to 3 years ago. Since then I've kept tabs on his own mixes and radio show output, which I have always thoroughly enjoyed. It seems we share a fairly eclectic taste, so when he asked me to share the airwaves with him during his Network show on Box Frequency, there was only ever going to be one answer.

Matthew asked me for a mix a good few months ago now, but between one thing or another, I just never got the time to do it. Buying some new equipment also held things up and to be honest, I should be spending time getting to grips with the Traktor Kontrol S4 and setting it up correctly rather than just diving in and making mixes. That's me all over though, and I couldn't help myself.  My mix for this show was only my third time on the S4, so it's not perfect, but not the worst for being a newbie. (PS - Yes, I did slow the Jonny Nash track down a lot..... simple reason, I quite liked the way it sounded, no more, no less).

I'll have some more new mixes to share soon, so keep an eye out for those. In the meantime, here are both parts of the Network show broadcast last Thursday evening (10th September), linked up for you to grab the tracks you enjoy.

Mixamorphosis - Dedicated To The Summer We Never Had

It's not been much of a summer in the North East corner of Scotland. It's fleetingly teased us on occasion, but never really settled in to a steady pattern you could call Summer. Now that we are staring Autumn in the face, I figured I'd tip my hat to the season that never was, and break up the stream of older posts with a fresh mix.

I'm still getting to grips with Traktor and I've still to get it all set up correctly, but I can't help myself from having a a wee session here and there. This is one of those sessions, recorded 100% live and on the hop.

I should have some news shortly on a guest mix or two, so keep your eyes peeled for news on that via here or over on the Mixamorphosis Facebook page.

As usual, linked up tracklist can be found below the player. Buy the tunes you enjoy and support the artists.

Mixamorphosis - Down The Rabbit Hole (April '14)

I'm hoping to have a few fresh mixes to share with those who are interested in the coming weeks, possibly one or two guest mixes in the pipeline too, but in the meantime, I'll keep moving older things on to the blog as and when I can.

Today I'm posting a mix which was originally intended for airing on Box Frequency back in April 2014, but due to a technical hitch, it never actually went out as intended. It's been on the rotation list for the Automatic DJ that runs the station when there aren't any live shows on, so you may have caught it there. If not, then it's a worthwhile post for me to be sharing. As a side note, this mix was cobbled together the day before I moved house. My CDJ's and mixer were the last things to be packed.... not something I'll do again in a hurry!

As always, I'd encourage you to buy the music legally should you enjoy any of the music featured and support the artists.

Down The Rabbit Hole - Softmore (Now MMCD) & Mixamorphosis

The 3rd and final Down The Rabbit Hole show I was involved in saw me joined by the seriously talented Softmore. You might know him as MK, Matthew Kyle, Matthew McDonald, MMCD, In The Woods (the record label) or even as one half of his new project Reticent (along with Stephanie Grace). However you know him, you have to agree that he has real skills when it comes to music, whether that be edits, sample based tracks or original productions and DJ sets. Safe to say, I'm a big fan and have been since I discovered his work on Soundcloud a good few years ago now.

This show came in 3 parts, but really, the star of this is the Softmore mix in part 2. Feel free to check my own contributions too, but you really should check out *and download* the Softmore slot.....it's a keeper!

By the way, I'm going to link up the tracklist as much as I can, but some tracks aren't going to be easy to find (or not possible at all) due to the nature of edits / soundcloud and the fact that Softmore created a number of these himself.

Different Strokes - Show 1 - The dL & Mixamorphosis

The next post to be moved to this blog is from the debut Different Strokes show that was broadcast via Box Frequency and features a thoroughly good mix from The dL (of Decades) followed by a mix from myself.

I've been a huge fan of The dL / Decades since I discovered a treasure trove of top notch edits and DJ mixes over on Soundcloud a few years back. The edits and DJ sets were regular features in my (now defunct) weekly post 'Soundcloud Sunday'. There was even an edit of Minnie Riperton's track 'Reasons' done by The dL for the blog. So, it stood to reason that The dL would be high on the wishlist for my first guest on the first show, and I'm delighted he did.

If you enjoy this live mix, then consider checking him out on these links and giving him a follow:
