Let the music (use you)

When Elizabeth and I bought our flat late last year one of the improvements on the places we'd been living in before was having a third bedroom, one that could be "Tad's music room". Suddenly I was off buying some good quality monitor speakers and hooking the mixer up to my computer. From that inspiration I produced this disco mix just before Xmas.

I get very impatient with recording mixes so mine (like this one) are almost invariably done in one take after I have worked out which records to play. As a result there are always little glitches, but I think that if you want it to be perfect you may as well get a computer to do it for you. But then that's not DJing anymore.

This mix represents some of the sounds I was playing alongside Greg Brooks when we did the Cosmic Disco night earlier this year. There is a mixture of re-edits and originals, with quite a few favourites thrown in for good measure.

  1. Nothing like a little bit of Hot Chocolate to get things going is there?
