Recently acquired stuff knocked together in an order that seems to make sense. New Justice and Friendly Fires singles, and fresh Ewan Pearson remixes setting the tone. The making-mixes-to-play-at-work thing came about a couple of years ago for 4 key reasons. 1) Channeling an out-of-hand digital music habit 2) insomnia 3) new mixing software 4) the Pirate in control of the music turning Radio 1 off. Combine this with a constant love of (new) tunes, and a DJing history, and mixes became places to put the latest downloads in one easy-to-listen-to place, with no real theme, concept, or sense of occasion. Just for the tunes. Just for the listen. This Is Pirate Radio has since created the platform for us to dig around our various record boxes and mix the old with the new and share the love. But this new mix is definitely akin to that original spirit of here’s-a-bunch-of-new-tunes-that-we-want-to-check-out. And now we get to share that. Enjoy! (Blimey, does anybody ever read this blah blah?)
