The Mix With No Name

22 September 2016

No comments

I've been meaning to get this one posted before now, but better late than never. It's an off the cuff mix after a few alcoholic beverages had been consumed, so bear that in mind when listening. 

I'm finding that as I get older (perhaps due to the blurring of lines between genres) my ability to pigeon hole music is lessening, so call it what you will, but I'm going with shades of deep house with a little bit of deep techno-ishy thrown in. Who cares? If you like it, great! If not, you move on to something else. Hit play and find out.

I'm going to take this opportunity to plug the upcoming Chillin' Autumn series which kicks off this weekend with mixes from George Mihaly and Matthew Foord. Keep an eye out for it and I'll share them on here as and when I get the chance.

This mix was one I recently put together, just for the fun of it, on a Friday evening. A couple of Mojitos, hit record and press play, and this is what came out the other end. Seeing as it's Friday evening, I thought I'd get it up on the blog.

Chilled Spring

29 May 2016

No comments

It was initially intended that there would be twelve mixes in the Chilled Spring series, but it looks like Part 10 (from myself) will be wrapping up this series.

The mix ended up having more beats in it than I'd intended, but what is posted is a live mix, done without any pre-planning, and although it wasn't as ambient as I'd intended, it's still in keeping with a chilled out vibe, so I let it run.

As usual, if you enjoy any of the music, please purchase it and support the artists!


01. Cass. - Moiré
02. Land of Light - Flares
03. Seahawks - Didn't Know I Was Lost (Black Peaches Remix)
04. Nev Cottee - If I Could Tell You
05. Suso Sâiz - La Mano Transparente
06. Land Of Light - Bell Rock Outpost (Seahawks Remix)
07. Shammen Delly - Sumer Is Icumen In
08. Floating Points - Silhouettes (I, II, & III)
09. Gaussian Curve - Red Light
10. Jack Cutter - Serpent Strut

16. Trabant - Happy Sunny Song
Imperfect Product - Solina
18. Cantoma - Early Till Late

A Postcard From Reality

28 March 2016

No comments

As those of you who have kept in the loop with my mixes and posts over the years will know, I tend to post a mix before I head off on a trip (see my On Vacation mixes on Hearthis).

At the end of this week I am heading off on my motorbike for a trip. I have no idea how far I am going, nor how long I am away for. I have a set of motorcycle panniers ready to pack, my passport and an International Driving Permit - but only one destination planned - Leeds. Yes, I know I don't need a passport for Leeds, but it's just my first stop off point. 

All being well, I'm going to be joining some friends to listen to some good music and have a few beers at The Outlaws Yacht Club for the Balearic Social 5th Birthday. The event flyer is below, and as you'll see, it takes place over the course of 3 days. I'm aiming to travel down on the Friday, and at the very least, make it along on the Saturday for my first night out in a very long time. If all goes well, I'll try get along for the Sunday too, so if you're in the area, I'll maybe catch you there!

As I was saying, I like to post a mix before I head off on a trip. This time I've changed things up and aborted the On Vacation series, and gone with 'A Postcard From Reality'. There are a few bits in the mix I'm not overly happy with, but that's normal for me.... most folk won't care two hoots, so I'm posting it up, warts and all. If you happen to listen, download and enjoy, then do feel free to share it around to anyone you think might also enjoy it.

Whilst I'm away, I will try and keep up with the Chilled Spring posts - but if it goes a little quiet on here, you'll know that I'll catch up on my return.

Hope you enjoy this little journey whilst I head off on mine.


08. Boule Noir - Aimes-tu a Vie Comme Moi (Noodleman Rework)
12. Jona Saucedo - Look At Me
13. Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Under The Bridge (Dynamicron Edit)
14. Rhythm Heritage - Barettas Theme (Jack Sparrow Edit)

Vide Cor Meum

It feels like forever since I last posted. Probably because there was a glut of posts for the wonderful series of Winter Chill mixes (which I'm still listening to by the way). Whilst I'm on the topic, a reminder that there will be a new series starting in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for it.

As for this mix, it was an impromptu mix where I hit the record button and played music. Nothing planned, no idea where I was going with it, and this was the result. I offered it up on my Facebook for any of my podcast / radio show hosting friends who may need a mix to plug a gap in their schedule, and Simon Cox from Saturo Sounds spoke up first, so that's where it went.

I've got a few other mixes to sort out in the coming weeks, so hopefully it won't be as long until the next post. In the meantime, here is the mix and linked up tracklist.... if you enjoy any of the tracks, support the artists and labels and buy the music!

Winter Chill: Peractio

24 January 2016

Peractio Definition:
last act (of drama)

Officially speaking, the Winter Chill series ended at mix #10 from Another Fine Day. However, I had prepared a mix to fit into the Winter Chill series as a back up, just in case one of the other contributions fell through. It seems like a bit of a shame to waste the mix, and as a means to put the series to bed, at least for now, I'm sharing it with you here.

Keep an ear open for a new series towards the tail end of March.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this selection and if you enjoy any of the tracks from this, or any of the other mixes, please buy the music and support the artists and labels.
