Funky house mix, originally laid down as a demo for Hell Bar. At the time, I may have told Selina it was produced especially for her birthday. 68’23” - 78.3 MB - MP3 file - 160kps dj sneak - funky rhythm - border patrol refixx a studio - sos - skylark vocal rasmus faber - divided/united - dub michael grey - the weekend - original bobby blanco - 3am…
 
Not a sitar in sight. This mix is a selection of vocal lounge house tracks from around the time I was playing Buddah Bar on Frith Street in Soho. Lisa had been after a CD featuring Fade for a while, so that’s what we open with... Buddah Bar Sessions - deep house for Lisa 1 solu music feat kimblee - fade 2 mj cole - sincere - naked music mig's petal…
 
After Fabian’s bday party at Buddah, I started playing there every Saturday in summer 2004. The owners wanted me to play lounge beach house which became quite dull for me. Anyway, the bar manager, a top bloke called Tom, promoted a lot of club nights so I did him this demo of more banging upfront house stompers. mix for tom @ buddah bar > 2/4/04 bl…
 
Naresh was a founding partner of Karmarama, a creative agency I helped appoint for Emap radio. Naresh is a big music fan and I still see him every year back stage at Glastonbury. He’s into rock more than dance and over a lunch he once told me he didn’t really know much about house music... so, as a thank you for the lunch, I promised to burn him a …
 
So, Paul and I were inseparable best buddies for through ‘99-’01, so when his lovely partner, Fabian, asked me to dj at his 30th, it was a pleasure. We spent a few nights in Soho in January looking for the perfect venue and decided upon what used to Buddah Bar on Frith Street. The party invite was a 30 minute CD, for which I spent a whole afternoon…
 
Uploading these old mixes, I’ve noticed that I always manage to knock out something special every February. Maybe it’s because I’ve fully recovered from the Christmas hangover. Perhaps it’s the Miami WMC on the horizon, so there’s a wad of inspiring new tunes out... Most probably it’s because it’s Selina’s birthday, which I often forget and so have…
 
This mix is part of a trio of sessions I laid down for a trip to Ibiza in 2003. Selina & Matt, Ben & Lara, Lisa, Malcolm and myself took a villa up in the hills and had a fantastic break. I sorted out a wad of minidiscs for lazy poolside days. From memory, and from reviewing my limited notes, this mix was actually two separate sessions. I initially…
 
Daytime poolside vibes mixed for our trip to Ibiza, 03, with Malcolm, Selina, Matt F, Lisa, Lara, Ben and a few friends of Matt F. Sunshine pop, disco, hip hop and few summer house classics. Easy going party vibes for beer o’clock: mid afternoon with hangover clearing, time to gear up for the night ahead... Now also a favourite of Rachel’s. Daytime…
 
Another daytime poolside session for our trip to Ibiza 2003. This time it’s all house tunes, but stacked with girly floorfillers and bootlegs (hence the title). Private Eye is a bootleg of Hall & Oats’ I can’t go for that; the Coloursound tune is lost gem here in it’s original form; G Club’s Guitarra G oozes Ibiza sunshine; and with Balearic faves …
 
Another one of those sessions mixed with the decks on the floor in the hallway because we were still doing up the flat. Jill had just left the Kentish Town Massive and moved in with Nick, so it was a little house warming gift for them. I remember it blearing out at a BBQ they had that summer. update april 03 | jill’s house warmer > mixed 13/4/03 ja…
 
Funky house favourites from early ’03. Produced for my bestest buddy, Selina, on her 30th birthday. There’s something about Sel that makes me want to pull out all the stops for her. This time I had to pull out the decks - Matt & I had just moved house and the building work we had done meant it was too dusty for playing vinyl. I set up my decks on t…
 
Another definitive update mix, full of Bethnal Green summer vibes. I was so pleased with this pair of mixes (check out 19.2 too - slightly tougher), that I ended up burning about 50 copies for friends. This was also a labour of love. The two mixes were put together over a couple of months, grabbing snatches of time here and there. Each track was ed…
 
Part 2 of update 19.1. Slightly tougher/more tech-y. > dload CD insert cover 72’58” - 101MB - AAC file - 192 kpbps project: update > summer 2001 > 19.2 mixed 13/10/01>2/11/01 jakatta american dream ski oakenfull mix guarana ay camela le fabrique du sons remix negrocan aquela esquina grant nelson club mix bbt god’s child ep: oh yeah inner city good …
 
I mixed this for Billy when I couldn’t make it to his wedding. It’s collection of early 90s tunes that we played and heard out lots when we were at uni. With a few acapellas thrown in to segue the tracks, this is mixed for the living room / car, rather than the dance floor. 1 - arrested development - people everyday 2 - beats international - dub be…
 
Summer 2001. Matt, Mikey and Paul were sharing a house in Stoke Newington. The knocked-through lounge / kitchen / conservatory and outside yard made it an excellent party house. And being not-too-far from Finsbury Park made it an excellent venue for post-Pride shenanigans. As with all these parties, I’d rock up with my mini disc and wire together a…
 
I’m uploading this on a very cold February Saturday - I’ve been playing it to bring a little sunshine through my speakers and thought I should share it with you. This mix is a collection of vocal house anthems from the 90s. I made it for a summer party at “The Gay Church” (aka Kat and Chris’ apartment in a converted vicarage). The mixing isn’t much…
 
I may have already mentioned what a great flat Andie and I shared in Bethnal Green. With a large living space it was perfect for big parties, and we had a few. Best of the best were our New Year’s Eve extravaganzas. ‘2001: A Spaced Odyssey’ was the biggest headline event I can remember. Andie’s room was earth, floodlit in green, mine was Mars in re…
 
Chrissie is an old mate from my days at Kiss 100. Back in November 2000, she was particularly fond of a tune by Kojak that I’d blagged from one of the programming guys, so I built a mix around it for her birthday. The session is filled out with various commercial party anthems and other big tunes from 2000. Most of these tracks also appear in the 2…
 
This mix was laid down one hot summer afternoon for the first BBQ round at The Gay Church (Kat & Chris’ flat). They called it a BBQ, but it kind of started after dark and not much food was eaten... Summer of 2000 was a scorcher. So many parties too. The mix is very similar to the set I played at a party in West London for one of Jane’s friends. I t…
 
Here’s a favourite for dancing around Paul’s living room. Many of the tracks here also remind me of Cuneyt, who stayed with Andie and I for a while when he split up with his ex. One Saturday evening we got trashed and danced away wearing a pair of headphones each. The tracklist is a chunky selection of disco and filtered house anthems which I much …
 
More summer anthems from the Bethnal Green days. Lots of Full Intention remixes here, including a retake on Frankie Knuckles’ classic Tears and Jocelyn Brown’s It’s All Good, which was an old Sunday morning favourite of Andie Tickner back in the day. There’s also one of my early attempts at a live mash up, mixing To Be In Love over a George Morel g…
 
Classic tracks from my Bethnal Green days. Every one of these tunes reminds me of that particularly messy summer when we partied every weekend. I’d rock up with my minidisc player and annoy your neighbours, and this disc was usually in the set somewhere before Sunday evening... Mainly commercial funky house, but beware of the trance tracks at the e…
 
This was my first session after moving to London. I remember mixing it on a grey day in Bethnal Green, so I assume Andie Tickner and I had just taken up residence at City View House. I had just started working at Kiss 100 and was enjoying discovering London’s record shops. From memory, I think was mixed for Matt Fowler as a bit of thank you for let…
 
I remember that I’d been wanting to lay down a soul session for a while. I’d done the odd soul tape, but found RnB difficult to beat mix as the bpms can vary so much. Anyway, I’d just started going out with John L, whose best friend was something of a soul girl. Her birthday presented the perfect opportunity to get this recorded. I did it in one ev…
 
I can’t really remember the story behind this mix which was recorded when I lived in Chorlton, Manchester. I think I wanted to pull together a selection of the different loops and grooves and riffs that had guided my taste through the recent years. The session journeys through funky house grooves, through fat speed garage b-lines, to a handful of p…
 
Another archive session with Selina’s name in the title. At the time I was still living in Manchester and traveling to London once a week to set up a new creative team at Magic & Kiss FM. I stayed at Selina & Matt’s regularly, trying to plan my trips to coincide with weekends. This mix is one of a few that regularly accompanied up and down the M6. …
 
I can’t remember much about this session. I recorded it to minidisc when living in Chorlton, Manchester. It’s a mix of funky house and UK garage tunes from the summer of 1998. There’s are a couple of chart tracks in the mix (Tamperer and Horney) and Mad Professor’s dub-style Teardrop at the end for some reason - a 12” I had stolen when I moved flat…
 
Whatever happened to UK Garage? One minute it’s The Newest Bestest Thing In Town, then suddenly we’re all listening to rock and 80s-influence electro... These days it’s back underground UKG had its roots in the South (“it’s-a-Lon-don-thing”), but despite being based in Manchester, I was really into it. I loved the darker, grittier, harder Speed Gar…
 
There’s something exciting about a new bag of unplayed vinyl. Working as a radio producer at Key and Kiss, people often chucked unwanted wax my way. This mix was laid to minidisc after being handed a wad of upfront 12s by Chris Buckley. It was probably one of the weekends I filled in for him at Via Fossa. The session starts off with some smooth uk …
 
Here’s an old Manchester mixtape that was always in the car stereo. I’m a little fuzzy on when it was finished, probably mid summer 1997 guessing from the tunes in the mix. Following the double update 1.1 / 1.2, I couldn’t wait to get back into the studio and cut up a new set of tracks. I’m still quite proud of this session. The tunes are great: a …
 
So, this is where it all began: a series of noël mixes with numbers in the titles that just confused everyone. Through the early 90s I was pretty efficient at knocking out a new mix tape every month or so, but for some reason - probably a combination or work and going out too much - I hadn’t committed anything to tape or minidisc for a while. At th…
 
Part two of update 1.1. We pick up the tempo on this disc, but it’s not all banging stompers as there are a few blissed-out moments courtesy of Chicane and Way Out West. And I still love the deep phat ‘Huff and Puff’ track. With appearances from the likes of BT and Paul van Dyke, alongside tracks from BBE and Natural Born Grooves, you can see how t…
 
I’m uploading this in December 2009. I’ve stumbled upon a box of old mix tapes from the mid 90s and this one’s a corker, full of main room peak time vocal anthems. According to my scribbles on the inlay card (pictures attached to the file) I originally mixed this for Tony Mellor after a lost weekend at The Fridge in London. It may have been Pride w…
 
This is one of my first mixes recorded in a studio. I’d just moved into Matt’s in Stetford and he kept getting burgled so I stored my decks at work. This was in the days when Piccadilly Radio was based in Piccadilly Plaza (Manchester). The commercial production studio was separate from the rest of Key103 and I was often working weekends uploading c…
 
I had a week off recently and whilst digging around for tunes online I rediscovered a chunk of early remixes by Terry Farley and Pete Heller of Junior Boys Own fame. In the early 90s I was a big fan of their work under the Fire Island and Roach Motel monicas. This session pulls together some of my favourite FI/RM looped bassline grooves and brass s…
 
I recently found a site full of CD singles from back in the day and, well, filled my boots, replacing worn-out vinyl with digital copies and filling a few gaps in the collection. Having spent years just heading for the lead mix on a 12” it was interesting to rediscover some of the lesser-played mixes. Here’s a session of those alternative cuts, mai…
 
Classic old skool handbag house from our days at Manchester’s first Saturday gay house all-nighter, later to become Danceteria. Although the tunes are from the early 90s, I produced this mix in April ’98 for a birthday party at Maple Ave, Chorlton. Includes: The Fog, Loni Clarke, MK, Joe Roberts, Bassheads, Judy Cheeks, K-Klass, Shy One and more. I…
 
More tunes from the good ol’ days of skipping across that filthy carpet on Sunday mornings. Sing along with T’empo, Janet Jackson, Brand New Heavies, Jinny, Inner City, My Friend Sam and more. Volume 2 was mixed 27 Dec 1999 for Millennium New Years Eve party in Bethnal Green, although most of the tracks are circa 1993 (hence the date above). 71’36”…
