Each mix I do has a theme. The theme may, frankly, be tenuous on occasion, but there is always some sort of over-arching, high-falutin’, poncey idea behind it. For this mix, I returned to downtempo territory. Over the past 15 years or more, I’ve become slightly obsessed by the 95-115bpm range and for this I kept it no faster than 110bpm. I must admit, I like the late night electronic feel of that speed. Maybe it’s because I’m getting old; or getting awkward (I often get people coming up when I’m DJing and asking me if I’m going to speed things up, as though they’re on a bus and late for an appointment). Most of the stuff on here came out this year, with a few oldies thrown in the mix and a couple that have yet to come out. No rhyme or reason for why they’re there, other than I like them and it all seemed to fit together.
So, anyway, yeah, it’s slow. Get over it and enjoy 🙂
