the mid-month music mix is coming to you courtesy of a reader request,

I get up quite early and start at the office well before anybody else arrives. Nothing better than having coffee and some loud music then, to start the day. So, my request, could you do a morning playlist? Something that would be like a rare and refreshing fruit to start the day with, would be fantastic . . . Thank you!

february music mix is here! as much as i kind of despise valentines day/month i have to admit i was thinking about it when putting this mix together. it’s not 100% love songs, in fact there are a number of songs on here that are distinctly un-love songs. you know, valentines is a bunch of hoo haa anyway. BUT if you need something for your valentine that’s anti-hallmark just burn this playlist to CD… you can take complete credit, i won’t mind *

i was pretty damn thrilled when i received a mail from steph who hosts a radio show at american university in washington dc. she kindly asked me to contribute a playlist to their programme (called “muzak to make your booty clap” – hehe) and my first thought was, “YES! an actual real life legitimate reason to make yet another music mix.”

it’s december. wow. 2010 went by so quickly, yet i can barely remember january. this was my first post of 2010 where i declared that i would ‘go out and see more stuff’. i’m not sure i lived up to my resolution. i’d like to be hopeful in thinking that 2011 is going to be different. so this month’s music mix is all about trying to be upbeat and … um… full of hope – but in a proactive & non-cheesy way. as bowie so wisely sang:

Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’

i wasn’t really thinking of a theme at all when putting the mid-november mix together, just smashing together a bunch of songs i’ve been playing a lot lately. then i realised there may be a hidden theme as many of them are actually love songs. new love, old love, lost love… maybe even a bit of hate love. so there you have it.

GUYS. it’s the first of november! the beginning of the end of the year (almost). it’s also that weird and wonderful month when men grow moustaches (some shouldn’t, harrison ford for example.) to celebrate i decided to put together an hour long playlist to get your groove on to, or at least get you in the mood for cutting some shapes. a mix of old & new disco, funk, soul and remixed flavours. look out for another one later, two mixes a month is more special than one.

you called me after midnight

hello troublemakers, here’s a little bonus october mix for you! kind of an early morning with a slight hangover and i can’t play anything too upbeat mix. or perhaps an i’d like to play some music at 1am without waking up the neighbours mix.
