Well goodbye to my original copy (not the crappy 08 repress) of Kerri Chandlers Atmosphere ep. While in the mix it started skipping and I have tried cleaning it but it’s still jumping. R.I.P! Another sad moment this week was the closing down of Hear Now. It brings a tear to my eye ever time a record shop closes in Melbourne. Essentially, this means less people are buying music and if less people are buying music it means making tunes is not viable and therefore independent labels suffer. This is something I do not want to get into right now, maybe another time.

Anyway, this mix features 4-5 older records purchased from Hear Now, played as a tribute, and 5 new records I purchased this week (well some relatively new stuff).

The last track is one of the coolest modern soul records I have heard in a while. Mayer Hawthorne’s “Maybe So, Maybe No” 12 inch is amazing. Although it is a cover of an old 60s soul piece, it really hits the spot. Some dope instrumentals as well. Discogs

My first post on this blog was to a deep house mix of tunes from 1998-2002 which I had mixed. Well, here is a new deep mix that showcases newer sounds which I enjoy. This mix is more stripped back and raw, definately a different deep vibe. Think Omar S and Pepe etc. In fact, I have played two new Pepe Braddock records in this mix. He is releasing his mix CD very soon. A track list and update will be provided tomorrow. For the time being, enjoy!

Stay tuned to the final two records. Real pearlers. The final track has been recorded in two english lads home studios using vintage synths and production methods. More soon!
