It’s Mix Time! Crowdsourced

Isn't he nice?

I am racing forward while looking backwards.

This mix is a return to the house style but it’s all very forward looking in that it’s full of very very fresh tracks indeed (Swimming Places aside, but that’s just very lovely).

Faced with a dearth of new dance music, I went nuts for a couple of hours scouring the blogs, forums and elsewhere to see what was happening. I ended up (mostly) purchasing about 35 tracks and whittlin’ ’em down to this bouncy (but not cheesy) house set.

You may expect to hear some of these tracks later in the year when they get proper commercial releases (and no doubt ‘feat. Chipmunk’ or ‘with Mutya’ or somesuch).

The GramophonedZie track, in particular, sounds like a future hit. It liberally samples and chops up Peggy Lee’s ‘Why Donโ€™t You Do Right?’. Delphic are the latest skinny-indie boys that will save pop (unless Hurts do it first). Best name for a dance act goes to Soft Toy Emergency and Rather Stonking Award goes to Moussa Clarke’s ‘Love Key’.

Indulge thyselves…..
