BIG CHILL Radio 6 Mixes

Jamie xx, Norman Jay and Mr Scruff mixes from the BC.  Go to dropbox for the DL.  Haven't listened to it all yet but it's got to be worth it just for the Brass Band version of 'Good Life'.

Big Chillover

After going to the Big Chill at the weekend here's a mix inspired by some of the things I heard over the weekend. I'm still recovering 4 days later and I had a gap in my schedule after the England game was called off due to rioting (ironically not by football fans). Extra points for anyone attentive enough to tell me why I used a picture of Maradona for the mix. This one goes out to my old china plate Jez who always told me about the Big Chill and made me want to go. Respect.

Cheesy Beats & Wobbly Treats!

Nothing particularly deep and meaningful. They won't make you shed a tear, reminisce about a lost love or go all warm and fuzzy.
Don't expect shivers down your spine or raised hairs on the back of your neck, and don't expect to hear them featured in the next episode of Grey's Anatomy.

What you can look forward to is wobbly bass lines, plump beats and an overwhelming urge to turn the volume clockwise and throw some shapes!

Diggin Selection

For those who couldn't make it to Puli's premier all-star DJ disco action here are some of the tunes that were played, and some which weren't, to a slightly bemused crowd of Taiwanese boppers. They didn't get the bpms and rolling crescendos they normally associate with the letter combination if 'd' and 'j' but we sure gave them something to shake their handbags to. Cheers to BFace and Brews for a couple o tracks.  If you want any DL shenanigans let me knows and i'll drop in ya box.

Reggae Summer

Following the Rodigan revival check out his 10 week show on radio2 (cheers Dan for putting me on to this) for all things reggae, old and new. Although I enjoyed most of the tracks on his first show I couldn't quite stomach the DeVille track, had to go out the room for more Bar (Taiwan's red stripe) at that point. Apart from that it's all custard, including a great ska track from Winehouse.
