Radio Soundhog Volume 4 was intended as a promotional mix during the days when I was jetting off around the world, pretending to be a "proper DJ", but I was told: "it's too long, it needs to be 30 minutes maximum". Well, there's no way I could have done that, my sets were already becoming incredibly eclectic affairs and I wanted people to hear exactly what I was up to. There are a few tracks by other people in here - ones I can still listen to today as well as being floorfillers at the time. Roughly two-thirds of the set is from actual live recordings, augmented with some new ideas and twiddly bits, and all knitted together in one evening sitting at the PC. There's too much Kelis in it, but I didn't notice that until Dan Sheldon pointed it out. Oops. Most of the music within this mix is very dated now, veering perilously close to bootlegs for bootlegs' sake, but it's an aural snapshot of a brief and happy time in my life. It couldn't last... and it bloody well didn't...
