Making a mix that means anything to me requires somewhat of a cosmic alignment of free\down time, an empty home, a fresh wave of records (old or new), and an angle. I'm as neophile as they come, but it's always been important to me, as dj or a booker, to see a mark of reference and of personality in a good mix.

I don't think my selections win any prizes for obscurity or exclusivity, but I believe an ethos of timelessness remains in most of the tracks. Bonafide pop stars of the 80's rub shoulders with the sounds of future dancefloors through the unsubtle intrusion of 'wonky' strains. Analogue warmth holding hands with cold minimal. The paranoic soundscapes of the modern world grapple with moments of pure light, euphoric trance. An uptight english boy nods his head to strains of funk and soul, and greets marshall jefferson like an old friend, with a toothy grin.

Beauty in sparseness, repetition and tension. A dressing gown, a green tea, and a macbook. Creativity has never been so mundane. So instant. New love.
