I've been on quite a roll with the amount of mixes I've been posting lately. I'm putting that down to no longer being bound to the chore of burning of cd's to use in the CDJ's. I really do not miss that at all. So riding the wave of productivity I'll take this opportunity to share a couple of things that have already happened and a couple of things I'm planning on putting up in the coming days/weeks.
First things first. If you didn't catch my selection that I put together for the good folks of Dusk Dubs, then you can check it out over on their web page <<<HERE>>>. It's a selection of tracks that have inspired, comforted and lived with me in recent years. There's nothing 'club' based in it; I've been describing it as a 'Back To Mine' kind of selection. Anyway, you can catch that and some scribbles I put together to accompany the selection over on their site now.
We can also look forward to Part 2 of the Winter Chill mix that I put together last week. That is going to be provided by Andy Pye of the excellent Balearic Social. No date on that one but something that is sure to be of real top quality when it lands.
Finally, for now at least, I'm going to jump on the band wagon of creating a list. Yes, I know, they are coming at us from all angles at the moment, but at the end of the day, playing music in DJ sets is all about promotion really, and I'm viewing it as an extension to that. So I'm going to post my top 10 albums, top 5 re-issues and top 5 compilations of 2015. I'm aiming to have it done before Xmas, so if you're interested keep an eye out.
So, onto this latest mix. It's basically a selection of some lovely music I've bought over the course of this year. I do hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please support the artists and labels by buying their music.
