CHRISTMAS WIND DOWN MIX
WELCOME TO THE NEW DECADE
Greetings, greetings, greetings.
I hope everyone in web land is feeling fine and full of beans for the new year ahead.
I trust a pleasant Christmas and New Years Eve were celebrated by all?
Fun, frivolity, food?
Socialising, sleeping, snowing?
I had a good time (thanks for asking) – but not feeling too rested as generally did too much.
Wanted to get the blog-ball rolling for the new year and thought I would present you, for your aural listening pleasure, a nice mix to bring yourselves down from the excitement of the past few weeks. Does that sound nice?
SPANKING NEW SHINEY LOVELY TECHNICS 1210’s MK ii
Thats correct – after being in the dark place for about a year and having no decks, that problem has now been rectified with a lovely pair bought on ebay. Finally I was reunited with my records and celebrated shortly before New Year by playing a selection of fine tunes.
That selection has been uploaded to the lovely people at Soundcloud and is available from there or from below for you to enjoy.
I do not proclaim to be a technical genius – I do not claim to mix – but a fine selection of music I can guarantee.
You can listen to the mix or download it from here: http://soundcloud.com/asomatous/john-house-christmas-wind-down-mix-2009
