Friday Mixtape #52 - The Birthday Mix

Happy Birthday to the mixes!
Okay, well admittedly it's been over a year since I've started making the mixes, but this is the official 52nd mix making it the birthday mix. Boo-yeah. Also, since it's late, I've made it a double... 20 songs for your listening pleasures.

After this I won't be making the mixes quite every week. They've been really fun to do, but at the moment I have a few too many things on my plate making it nearly impossible to get them out... the fact that this mix is over 2 weeks late is the proof.

But fear not, I'm not giving them up completely, they just won't be weekly. And of course you can always catch my monthly radio show I'm still doing for Radio Nowhere.

Anyways, enjoy this mix, enjoy the summer and keep subscribed so you don't miss the next mix, whenever that may be. xoxo

Friday Mixtape #51 - The Chills

This week, rejuvenated from a small break, I've been inspired but a lot of disco-y-electro-hip-pop. But with a certain down-played relaxed vibe running throughout at the same time. A diverse group of artists who all probably fancy dancing late into the night and sitting and talking until the sun rises.

I also have to thank my brother for introducing me to a few of these fun mashed-up tunes. Oh yeah, and of course included my own band's brand new track. Ha.

Delayed gratification...

I know I promised that I was nearly to the 52 weeks of mixtapes mark... and I was due to treat you with #51 on Friday, but the truth is, this week I have been lazily enjoying my home land of California. Much time in Santa Barbara was spent with family and friends so I felt they deserved my time more than the music. I'll be back with a bang next friday, the official release date of my band's next single, Don't Panic... which you can officially listen to on the mySpace.
