Discotonic practice mix

I’m going to be dj-ing at Discotonic in Dublin on May 27 (details here) and have been putting together some records I might like to play. This is the second of my Discotonic practice mixes and, even though it sags a little in the middle, I’m much happier with this one than the first one. I’m not sure if I’ll actually play many (or even any!) of these tunes at Discotonic but this is the type of stuff I’m thinking of playing: 06-05-11discotonicpractice.mp3.

  • May mix

    Here’s a new one. Having had the mixes blog up for a few months now, it looks like the right frequency for new mixes is going to be monthly. Any more frequently than that and I’ll be recycling a lot of tunes which I wanted to avoid. If you are interested in hearing the new mixes but don’t want to check the site every day/week, just subscribe to the rss feed and as soon as the site is updated you’ll be notified. This one has mostly new stuff on it and has a blend of different styles. Starts off with a weird-ish jazz number, then a bit of Ethiopian jazz, some bossa and then some pitched-down-below-120 bpm deepness before getting a bit more manic, finishing off with a brand new rare groove – this 7″ (from Keith Allen’s daughter!) was only released last week and is already sold out (currently at £26 on ebay).
