Mix Monday

Few mixes for you this morning - some old, some new, some on more of a chilled tip, some more of a heavy one.  I wanted to get my hour long radio show for University Radio Falmer up in this feature, but tragically the online stream went down (again...) today, and the AM broadcast hasn't worked for about two months.  Been working on the tracklist for the show for about 2 weeks as I missed last weeks show thanks to a meeting in London with UK hip hop MC/ head Twizzle about an upcoming collab and some live dates, so I thought I'd record the show anyway - I'll up it onto the blog later this week, when I've found my microphone.  Oh finally before we got down to mix business, thanks to Heather Jeany for the image.

First up we have a Disco mix from Dollop resident and promoter D'lex.  D'lex recorded this back in November to promote Aeroplane's appearance at Dollop that month.  Taking in some more obvious Disco picks (Paris), a classic Talking Heads B-side (Naive Melody, possibly my favourite Byrne tune) and some more obscure picks (House to House). Here's what D'lex had to say about the mix:
This month at dollop in Nottingham, we have the mighty Aeroplane playing alongside The Count & Sinden and Nero. In honour of the Belgian disco dons i have recorded this little mix featuring some of my favourite tracks of the 'cosmic / nu disco' sound (along with some guilty pleasures).

Next up we have the Zomby Rave Mix - a retro-hardcore mixtape that Zomby put this together for Dazed & Confused back in January 09 to promote his Where Were U In 92 LP.  The answer to that question for both me and Skream may be "I was in Nursery School in 92", but this sound has definitely come back in a big way recently, with producers like Redlight, Skream and many others repping it in their own productions, and when this mix popped up on shuffle last week I was reminded of how much I loved it. Thanks to the fellows over at Dazed for the upload.  A tracklist (albeit provided in prose form) can be found below, thanks to Zomby for the amusing commentary!  Also check out the youtube video for the Skream (I Was in Nursery School in 92) Remix of Zomby's Float below.  Still waiting to hear on a release date for this, if you have any info please let me know!

Cheers to the guys over at Tourist Party for this, proper quality mix from an amazing DJ - Weatherall pulls it off again - sublime tracklist, and the mixing ain't half bad.  Mixing between techno, disco and gloomy electronica.

Finally a mix from High Horse and Blogger's Delight resident Casper C - this is his warm up set from the last High Horse night at London's T-Bar.  According to Casper, the majority of this set was played to an empty room - which seems to me to be somewhat of a tragedy given how perfect this set is as an example of a warm up set.  A few tracks in the tracklist are incomplete - they slipped Casper's mind.
