'A joyful melancholy' (MIX2)

'A joyful melancholy' (MIX2)

Playing tracks by

Jamie XX, Jamie xx, Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX, John Talabot, DJ Shadow and more.

This is a purely selfish mix, which I made off the cuff without any pre-planning. As cheesy as it sounds, I started out knowing I was going to play the interview excerpt and then let each track choose itself from the previous. It's my exploration of my relationship with dance music, in an hour.

What you get is a weird and eclectic mix of new and old, with a few movements splattered in in disjointed places - be it a bit of melancholic Massive Attack at the end or a splattering of old school house in the middle. I hope you enjoy the weird rollercoaster as much as I did.
