The other big treat for me on a recent night out in Liverpool came in the shape of an anonymous-looking CD from fellow beat-mongerer Dax. We take the year-end as an excellent opportunity to exchange tunes that rocked our boat over the previous twelve months. It’s great for me to get some insight into the dance scene in ‘ole Blighty given I’m half a world away.
So, I also took the opportunity to hand pick from Dax’s selection and juggle them around in Ableton. And the mixtape below is what I came up with.
Oh, and I couldn’t resist throwing in a few Laidback Luke bootlegs I found on the web, as he was the other big highlight of the night.
