Big thanks to Mattie Valentine for the 125th "Straight From The Play Box" mix.

Mattie Started collecting reggae & ska records in the 90s when Brogues, red socks & A pair of Flares went nicely with a black eye! He made the natural progression from collecting reggae records to collecting Soul, Running a night in Portland Called "Ghost Town Soul Club" from 2005-2009, he has since moved around alot traveling The US & diging Fulltime. Has been A guest DJ At Many Emerald City Soul Club Weekenders In Seattle WA Several Years Running, Loves Spending Time In Washington DC At TNT, "pretty sure I'm the only DJ who's Been Asked Not To Come Back To The High Rollers weekender In Las Vegas" (not for lack of DJ skills). He goes across the board Northern/Crossover/R&B/ cheap Or Expensive. If It moves him Its bound to move the crowd!!

KILLER mix – driving and infectious beats. Particularly enjoyed Edward Hamilton (wicked n/soul track), Van Dykes (STAND OUT TUNE for me – super vocals and a thumping tune), Quotations (dreamy and a sweet dancer), David Ruffin (Cracking tune and what a talent Mr Ruffin was ‘back in the day’ – timeless tracks),
Great work. Cheers Jas :)
A couple for you: – Little Flint (Pain) – Kenny & Larry (You and I are through) – Frankie Newsome (Don’t Mess with my lovemaker) – Neal Chance (If by Chance) – Nolan Porter (If I could only be sure)


Gee... This guy really.... Ha! Samurai Suedeheads! Thanks Kieran and Thanks Mattie!
