THE RARE GROOVE SHOW. THIS DIDN´T COME EASY
Not an easy one. It took some months to gather the tracks during a busy period in my life. On the spur of the moment I threw them all down. Excuse the rough cut nature of the mix. Perfection can be boring and I like to select tracks as they come to mind. I guess this mix is influenced by listening to DJs such as Dez Andres and Rick Wilhite over recent times. Finding out that Matthew Herbert lives near me made me seek out his Secondhand Sounds LP- which was in my DJ bag, as always being a solid staple. Ultimately this got me in front of the decks. Since my last mix, sadly, East Village in Old Street, London has closed. I have many happy memories of the place which encouraged eclecticism and good music.
