Mixed ‘live’ for my 42nd birthday, I wanted to create a feeling of nostalgia & mix a more ‘house-music’ style set of tracks put together for fun rather than a big serious soundscape like my usual fare.
Lots of tracks are from years ago and the entire mix spans pretty much from 1991-2020. It’s not a retrospective of house music but I did want to include a few classics and include some good old hands in the air piano tracks that do it for me and capture that sense of care-free happiness from the early 1990s.
I grew up listening to hardcore, jungle, intelligent drum and bass, house and then mainly progressive house – I always loved the different sounds being produced by each genre and I feel today the melting pot of electronic music has them all fused neatly together.
I hope more than anything this mix brings a smile and that you as the listener can nod your head to a good few of these tracks and I take you back to your very own feelings of love and nostalgia.
