Brilliant set!!!!

It's amazing that sometimes you can close your eyes and pick a bunch of things out of the bin and put them on and they sound great. This set is brilliant - lots of great and different sounds all in one session. Really great work, mate! Joe Turner, Naples, FLA, USA


Mixed bag

Hello Joe

Thanks for the kind words. Yes - I know what you mean, sometimes it all just comes together nicely, and that was indeed one of those days where it just flowed together very well. Glad you enjoyed it. :)

works for me

Don't sell yourself short, it does take skills. The first hour had a decidely "Los Angeles" vibe to it with the Grusin, Bros. Johnson and Toto, leading me to think that we might be due for a Smoking Session featuring the Johnsons. Then the second hour was b-boys nirvana. The Planet Patrol 12-inch was the very first record that I beat-on-beat mixed, over and over and over. I used to collect everything that was on Tommy Boy. I finally lost count when they started their distribution here in the States with Warner. Where would early hip hop have been without the infamous "orch 5" hit from the Fairlight? I once read a research paper solely on that famous sample. Google it for some interesting reading. Then there was the Roland 808. Thank you Arthur Baker! The memories flood in and I'm in heaven! Absolutely SPOT ON session!


Join the dots...

Joe - thanks again for the kind words. We do try and 'join the dots' in the music we play (as I'm sure you know from listening to many of our shows) and create a vibe which hopefully paints a picture or tells a story. Like you say it's a skill, but equally we don't like to blow our own trumpets - we just deliver the music, and hopefully people (like yourself) enjoy it. Feedback like this is the biggest compliment we can ask for, so thanks again. :)
