Friday Mixtape #30 - Works For Me

This week's mix is a bit of cheeky fun and frolix. A lil bit of a nod of thanks to the 80s for the music of today, with a couple of fun covers thrown in for good measure. As usual, chock full of pop & electro to keep your head nodding throughout the day - or at least for a half hour.

Friday Mixtape #29 - Your Love

Can you believe another Friday has come and gone? Apologies for those in Greenwich Mean Time that this mix is getting to them a bit late in the day, but maybe it's for the best, as it's sort of getting ready to go out music mix. A bit stomping, a bit electro... a dollop of girly-sing-into-hairbrush stylings going on. Go on, it's Friday, make out with that hot stranger eying you up from across the room. I dare ya.

Sunday Mixtape #28 - Ring! Ring!

This week's mixtape is a few days late as life has a funny way of getting in the way of hobbies. For me, this Friday ended up being probably one of the lowest in my life for both personal and professional reasons so it's only now that I'm getting my head out of the sand.

Quite a weird mix of tunes this week any ways, Mostly new tracks from bands I'm finding myself interested in, with a few 80s songs thrown in for good measure. It's a bit of an indie dance rock party. Woop! Hope you enjoy, and do check out all the bands featured as they're really worth paying attention to.

Friday Mixtape #27 - Viva Las Vegas!

As mentioned last week, I was recently on holiday, which included a five-day jaunt to Sin City... hence this week's mix: Viva Las Vegas!

Now I'll admit, I'm not much of a fan of the Vegas of today, but I love the idea of vintage Vegas; that classy sleaze, the tuxedo-&-diamond-wearing crowd pulling up to the valet in their giant Caddies complete with tail fins. Bunny girls serving cocktails, crooners walking through the crowd with tiny gold mics...

So in that vein, this mix is in honor of the old Vegas, mostly vintage, full of cheesy horns and of course, Elvis. Think of this mix as my very own Neon Boneyard... Enjoy!
