7 August 2022


It's been a good few weeks since I last posted any blurb with my music post so I thought I best put something up other than just a tracklist.

If you've been here before then you'll perhaps know that these numbered mixes are being posted weekly throughout 2022 and it is my small effort to try and raise a modest amount for the excellent service provided by the UK charity Sue Ryder. I initially set the target at £250, which when I look at other fundraising efforts is quite a low target, but I don't have a huge amount of friends / family so I figured that would be a tough target to reach. The total raised now stands at £270, so I've raised the bar, just slightly because I don't really expect to get there nevermind any higher, and the goal now stands at £350. So, if you happen to enjoy the mixes I've been posting, and you're in a position to do so, please drop whatever you can or would like over on my Just Giving page - it's honestly a very worthy charity and is much needed and appreciated.

Other than that, I've been gearing up for a motorbike trip which I've got coming up. I'll save the details until I get back so I have something to share. With how I have been feeling this year it's very daunting and I have to be honest and say I'm very much looking ahead and feeling anxious more than any sense of excitement and some days I'm not looking forward to it at all - mostly because of how I feel with health matters. That said, I'll be pushing myself on but it won't be the easiest thing under current circumstances. Fingers crossed that once I get on with it I'll be so focussed on what I'm doing that I'll get a break from my brain and body telling me they're broken. First world problems etc etc etc.

One more thing to mention. I'm gradually going to be replacing all my old mixes on the blog from being Soundcloud hosted over to Mixcloud. In terms of play counts etc there isn't much difference between them, both have been consistently poor this year but Soundcloud is more expensive and just feels like it's really gone downhill. So once my current subscription runs out I'll be down to the basic account on there and all my older mixes will only be found on Mixcloud (although a lot are also on Hearthis I don't update there anymore).

So, now onto the music. I decided to make the month of August a month of House mixes. It'll be be varying shades of House but I'm kicking off with a heavy dose of Disco influence, some might called it Funky House, some might call it cheese. Call it what you like, I've always felt the funky and cheesy stuff works well during the summer months, so this week it's definitely got summer written all over it.

As usual, a linked up tracklist is below the player (Soundcloud for now) and the mix is also posted to Mixcloud.
