I’ve been waiting for my recent run of gigs to finish so I could put out this mix. This was the live set I played at Hot Club De Swing in Birmingham a couple of weeks ago, and to be honest I think it’s a really damn good mix. It definitely got everyone jumping which has to be a good sign!

Here’s two tracks from DJ Django mixing 50’s style rock & roll mixed with some nice deep bass action. Great stuff!
Here’s a quality remix of the lovely Alice Francis. Nice.
Here’s Professor Green bringing the fun back into music with his outside the box thinking…
Does what it says on the tin. Will Smith and Parov Stelar innit…
Old style blues grooves from Ecklectic Mick:
It’s very guitar heavy this but it does mix up some very nice middle eastern flavours in it.
Here’s Skeewiff slickly mixing up South American grooves with Jurassic 5 rhymes:
Skeewiff again. This ones good – Vassili Gemini on a very soulful tip. Quality music.
