THE SOUND OF '12 - EXCITING NEW MUSIC FROM THE PAST 12 MONTHS
Even in spite of the mind-wasting garbage in the mainstream ... 2012 has actually been a fantastic year for real new music! In March, I started The Sound Of Now on OX105FM in Oxford, which was a new experience for me.
So this year I'm officially retiring my year-end Bangers series to offer two The Sound Of '12 mixes, highlighting my favourite sounds from the past months of the show. Listen without prejudice for two interesting, inspiring and rewarding audio journeys. (Sadly, the automated Gestapo at Soundcloud objected to the algorithms on one of the tracks, hence Mixcloud. Here are the Mediafire links to be able to download them, meanwhile, as Mixcloud doesn't seem to have caught up with that concept yet.)
Mix 1 (Hip hop to D&B):
Mix 2 (Soulful/ Funky House):
There's so more to music than Rick Ross and Nikki Minaj!
