WFMD 'Suite 16 Pt 1: An Old Soulboy's Tribute

WFMD 'Suite 16 Pt 1: An Old Soulboy's Tribute

About the show

Playing tracks by

HI TENSION, Venice, (Intro) Praxis, Tashan Rashad, Luther Vandross and more.

This is the A-side to the 'lovemix' I uploaded earlier in the year.
I just returned from my first EVER soul weekender. The music got me round to digging out this when I was going to alldayers in my mis(spelt) youth. This was done on my brother's set (essentially 2 hi-fi decks with no pitch control & cheap mixer).
Every once in a while, you get into a zone, where the music seems to select itself, creating an extraordinary piece of work. I personally think this (alongside my slow soul mixes) is part of that. I hope you agree.
(I'd like to dedicate this to 2 women - firstly My Wife (love you loads xxxxx) & http://www.mixcloud.com/Marcia_CarrtheDJ/ - a talented DJ & ex-dancer (who I think would have made a great weekend brilliant for us if she'd played)).

Thanks guys for the comments. As I (think) I said, this may not be technically the best mix, but for me it's up there because for the first time I experienced the feeling of the records almost mixing themselves. It's an extraordinary sensation when you hit your stride in a mix. I was initially hesitant to upload it then just said 'To hell with it - upload & be damned!!'

Some fiyah pun de turntables... Lovin' the 2 x 12" cut ups Alph on the selection - taking me back to some special memories as a dancer in the late 89's to early 90's. Just retweeted (are you on Twitter or Facebook?) and thank YOU for the kind words too, blessings x
