About the show

Playing tracks by

Palmskin Productions, Glamco Productions/Jazzy Grooves I, Ronny Jordan & DJ Krush, THE BALLISTIC BROTHERS, Daisy Bagels Toast and more.

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...

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!

You're quite right about the warm-up sets - enjoy them too for playing what ever takes my fancy - we can dig deep or flip things up just as you've done with set Alph. Even the tracks I didn't know have got my attention; eclectic and I am feeling the energy - a great balance. Thanks for sharing and let's have some more. Love and blessings x

The correct tracklisting is now up.
Although it's an all vinyl mix, I have added a minor edit near the end.
