About the show

Playing tracks by

Julio Bashmore, Virgo Four, Hercules And Love Affair, GIRL UNIT, Gil Scott Heron/Jamie XX and more.

My music for the 2011 London Marathon was a collection of songs I loved during my training and songs recommended by friends.

I spent most of my training listening to long mixes and a lot of Benji B shows, making a note of my favorites over that time. These tracks alongside my recommended section meant a very (very) random collection of tracks and varying BPM's

Due to a live project we were streaming on the day my playlist had to be broken down into 5 separate MP3's to help with load time. I originally planned to stitch the tracks together but my friend Chris stepped up 12 hours before and offered to mix my tracks and turning my eclectic collection into a listenable structure. No mean feat!

This first section was heavily influenced by Benji B shows and most of my training sessions. I had to start with Gil Scot Heron/Jamie xx Running - cliched maybe...meh it felt fitting and great to run to.


Oh snap, there was a playback error!
