About the show

Playing tracks by

Ahead of the 20th anniversary of Stump Juice, this is a nod to the very overlooked but vital part of a DJ's arsenal – the Warm Up spot.
Most people (usually guys) getting into DJ'ing, tend to fight for the 'glory spot', i.e any part of the 2-3 hour peak period of most club sessions. However, I soon began to realise the importance of & came to enjoy the warm up session. This time when a club's open but still empty of punters can be as valuable as time as when you've got them in the palm of your hand, whipping them into a frenzy at peak time.
I'd use this time almost as a 'digging session', locating the less-often played tracks in my box, stuff that wouldn't normally make it into a regular or peak-time set, as well as new stuff I'd acquired. I might mix, I might not; there's no 'performance pressure' like when you're in the middle of a packed out club. Any aspiring DJ should use this spot to its full advantage – established bods can use it as a 'stop & smell the flowers' moment...

love the originality and variation of styles,,, great stuff, so many flowers and so many different scents to enjoy, variety is the spice of life,, i enjoyed listening very much, especially as it got more and more jazzy, i like that very much,,,, the whole playlist was great. Thankyou Alph.

I meant to get back to this one as i only got halfway through first time around. Very ecclectic assortment of tunes. Brief areas of intensity but an overall light vibe. Nice!
