This was one of my funnest DJ sets yet! Unfortunately the recording doesn’t feature Yaya Jojo‘s live scratches so you’ll just have to imagine them. A massive thank you once again to The Raiders DJ Crew, Nic, Yaya, Ed and Tap Social for having me. Tracklisting after the jump.
…or Compliments Of The Season as my family would say. I would normally do an end of year mix thingy and / or a free download but to be honest things have been a bit crazy in Mendoza land so unfortunately there’s no mix yet BUT I wanted to give you something so here’s a silly little beat I’ve been playing with.
And just because a feel bad about not doing a mixtape this year, here’s a special playlist with some of my favourite tracks of the year. Who knows, I may turn it in to an actual mixtape in the new year.
I’ve got to give a special mention to Laughing Lamb (aka Pete) who made one of my favourite albums of the year but hasn’t put it on Spotify. Listen / download on Bandcamp.
The lovely / crazy people at Truck Store let me play some of my favourite records* as part of their Record Store Day celebrations so here it is for you do listen to / download. It’s kind of random but there you go.
Download link and track listing after the bump.
2016. What a year. Personally, locally, nationally and internationally….What. A. Year.
Thankfully the soundtrack was good. From my point of view, I’m very proud to have put out The Shadow with the brilliant David Griffiths and also helped put together the WDNHAD Vol. 2 compilation. There has also been tons of other great stuff to listen to as well which has made things a bit easier to swallow.
Streaming and download links after the jump.
My final live outting of the year was a DJ set as part of Future Perfect‘s Christmas shindig. Things got a bit messy but hey, it’s almost Christmas so whatever. Tracklisting and download link after the jump.
Yesterday I got to do a live DJ set at Truck Store as part of their late night Thursdays thingy. It was fun. So here’s most of it for streaming / download. I say most because I forgot to hit record for the first 20mins or so. Whoops. Download and stream after the break.
It’s that time of year again. Yes it’s the time for lists, lists and more lists. As usual, rather than just give you another list here’s my C90(ish) mix of some of my favourite tunes from the past year. Not necessarily things that have come out (although there are a few of those) but also things that have meant something at various moments of the year for one reason or another.
Tracklisting + download links after the break
When I was at school, I used to give a good friend of mine a C90 cassette and say “Here, put some good stuff on this.”. I suppose this is kind of a contemporary equivalent. Be prepared for some shonky mixing, a shonky edit but most importantly some great tunes (and David Guetta).
