Marky's Mixtape Archive

looks like that's it as far as the summer's concerned. these short days and dark evenings are creeping in fast now...how long is it til clocks go back?!

anyway - for some reason it's inspiring me to sort through some tasks that have been nagging for a while...and the first is getting my recent mixes back online. well, i say recent - last 18 months or so - but time flies and all that.

there's a mixture of styles and tempos, blahblahblah. most importantly, i hope you enjoy the tunes and that they nestle well within your woolly autumn collection.

Mystery Mix - April 2007

this is a mix i did for Purple Radio's weekly "Mystery Mix" show. every Thursday at 10pm, a different guest presents an hour of music, and the people of the lively forum attempt to name the artists and tunes. i'll save you the hassle they had and give you the full list here:

Vince DiCola – Farewell
I Am Kloot – Loch
Head & Neck Sessions – Romancais
DJ Frane – Ode To Old Toby / Innervisions
Bernard “Pretty” Purdie – Funky Donkey

Disabled Romance Mixtape - October 2008

this is basically a bunch of wonky/filthy/wobbly/glitchy/beaty electronica tunes that i liked and wanted to have all in one place - so i made this mixtape.

jumbonics - bubble drop
dorian concept - fort teen
flying lotus - message situation
dinner at the thompsons - daily vitamines

all these artists have done tons more great stuff, so if you like what you hear on these mixes, be sure to go and purchase some more of their wares. it's a worthy investment - and you don't hear that too often at the moment...

Biggabush - album launch party @ Aardvark to Zebra (25/10/08)

sorry, it's been a while. plenty to come from me in the next week or so though, including a few mixes (old and new), a new radio show for you to listen to...and possibly some chat. let's see...

in the meantime, i thought i'd better let you know about this little gathering next weekend:

myself, Digital City's BarryDark and A2Z resident/promoter Ketsbaia are honoured to be supporting the fantastic Biggabush as he launches his new album, "13 Faces of Lightning Head", at Aardvark to Zebra @ The Green in Clerkenwell on Saturday October 25th.

it's running from 8pm til 1am, and it would be great to see you there!
