I don’t tend to highlight mixes here often, but when I do, it’s done as passionately as anything else I share. Having been suffering from a bit of a crisis of confidence of late, I felt my reserves strengthen over the course of twenty-four house and two deeply affecting and inspiring mixes from the UK’s Loft and Romania’s Khidja.Read More
So while I have a few interviews that I really need to publish, I took some time this weekend to record a nearly-five-hour mix for one of my bestest buds in the whole world and hey, it didn't turn out too bad either. Sure, there are a few near-trainwrecks and some issues with the grounding on my tables/mixer, but all in all, I've found myself listening to this quite a bit since recording it, which usually means it ain't half-bad.
I should note that the illustration for the first part is from the estimable Bjorn Copeland of Black Dice fame (actually it is a BD cover, oops.) The second is from the incredible Apollonia Saintclair who not only has a book coming out shortly that you should definitely check out, but will also hopefully be interviewed here once she has some time following the book.
And of course, a tracklist...
