Mix Archive (Sleepy Time): At Home, on Sunday (Spring 2008)

DJing at Home, in Second Life - Picture by Ka RasmasonAnother set recorded from Second Life. I was itching to play some ambient tunes and I talked my friend Altern8 into letting me to dj at his excellently designed chillout room at the Second Life Club space "Home" and here's the result. It starts off with an amazing piece by Tom Heasley, called "Prologue"; Tom makes these amazing pieces just using a Tuba (worth remembering when you're out searching for antique analogue synths for that illusive pad sounds). There's also 3 tracks from Gel-Sol - whom I'm quite happy to describe as a music genius - 2 off his new Ambient LP "IZ" ("Mourning Wok" and the title track) and his last more beat oriented LP "Unifactor" (both available from Upstairs Recordings) and a track by another music genius, Jon Hopkins off his surperb "Opalescent" LP, on Just Music; oh and, of course, an Echaskech tune "A Slow Day" (you can watch the video to that by cliicking here).

Mix Archive (Sleepy Time): Aural Epidural (2007)


islaIn the summer of 2007 I was approached by Bev and Pete (a.k.a MrsPirate and PiratePete) to provide a mix to accompany the birth of their first child, Isla. Initially I was thrown into a panic; having never attended a birth before (apart from my own, of course) I had no idea what they would want to hear during that incredibly emotional time; I knew it had to be long as first births have a reputation for being drawn out affairs and I knew I didn't want to stick to a tempo as, after a while that would just get annoying. They'd given me a free reign on music selection, trusting me implicitly so it was all up to me. So, I decided to put something together that would try and calm, relax, entertain, but also not try dominate the proceedings. I didn't want to have too much vocal stuff in there as I presumed there would be enough chatter/instruction/shouting/swearing going on without my mix adding to it. As fate would have it, due to the frenetic nature of a birth and some technical problems it wasn't used but has gone to keep Isla (and Bev and Pete) music entertained. Personally I use it, after a very good and heavy night, to drift off to sleep to ;)

First of the old mixes for you to download - Life is Beautiful (2002)


Life Is Beautiful I've started to populate the "mix archive" section of the site. First up is "Life is Beautiful" 74 minutes of Liquid Funk (ugh! I still hate that term), encoded at 192kpbs for your mp3 boxes. It was a culmination of many late night SoxaN sets at The Rhythm Factory and was the first mix cd that SoxaN put out. I'm still playing Del Boy's "Easyboomtastic" bootleg to this day... (*makes notes* must buy more records...) ;) Huge shout outs to Johnny Clash (Bam Bam Sound) & fancygirl (Daft Pink) who were my "sound boards" for this. Described by some as my best drum and bass mix - which is very flattering indeed (and listening to it now, even i admit it's frikkin' great) - but I better buck up my ideas up as this was recorded about 6 years ago! ;) Props to DJ Marky, Tony C from Hospital Records and John B.
