First up, props to the dook for getting this thing up and running - I have been enjoying a lot of new music via this site and thought it time to get my shit together and post something myself.
Living in Vietnam, CDs do not exist - the majority of my music has either been ripped from CDs bought previously or gathered from the virtual ether. Whilst always striving for the highest bitrate possible, sometimes you just have to accept the odd 128kbs tune if it is either have that or not have it at all and, unless I am playing tunes over a big PA system (where low-bit music just sounds wanky), I find this suits at home
Now, this mix.... put together using virtual dj and a semi-retarded external mixer, no headphone use, battered bass filters, hence not even trying to mix properly, more the wedding variety 'fade slowly from the end of one song into another'. I tried mixcloud, but their pesky 100MB limit meant I had to stick it up on soundcloud. Hope the player embeds below.... right, tracklist....
