This weekend, my friends and I are going to attend the Maryport Blues festival up in Cumbria, and I absolutely can't wait! The sun is predicted to shine, the cider will be on ice and the music is going to be soulful and rhythmic!
I will give you my impressions of it next week, however until then I've got a right collection of tracks and mixes that I've been enjoying over the past few days. I hope that you enjoy these just as much as I have done!
This first track is a cover of Hoochie Coochie man by a band called the Raw Peaches, who are absolutely rocking Leeds at the moment! Check them out on facebook, some of the tracks on the music player are absolutely gorgeous and this is a great cover.
First up, this is an electro house mix I stumbled across yesterday completely by accident - this is one of the most enjoyable mixes I've found recently by someone I've not come across before, and includes some tracks and remixes by the DJ himself which are fantastic. This is by Under Construction - click here to listen and download. The track above is called "In my Game" and is a really enjoyable tune from the mix that thoroughly got under my skin!
Next up, this is a new track forthcoming from Lynx and Hellraiser, called Taboo!
Time for some breaks now - again this is another mix that I stumbled across randomly (God bless Soundcloud!) but definitely a firm fave of the moment! Click here to listen - this is by DSH and includes a mixture of breaks tracks from the noughties.
Darling by Queensway is a really enjoyable track, and I was very pleased when I spotted clips for a forthcoming LP from Queensway, again on Soundcloud. Click here to check out the Blu Saphir page and listen to clips from the forthcoming album.
Time for another fabriclive promo mix now, this time from S.P.Y - regular readers will know that S.P.Y is one of my fave DJ's at the mo, and this mix is fabulous! Loads of tunes from S.P.Y and DJ Marky to get your teeth into! Click here to listen, download and for the tracklist.The above track is Pressure Drop, one of my favourites from the mix.
This track is called Strength 2 Strength (Smooth Remix) by Matrix and Futurebound, and was included on the recent Viper Worldwide album which is highly enjoyable!
Next up, this has been one of my fave mixes over the past couple of weeks - this is a new podcast from Technique Recordings, mixed by Tantrum Desire, showcasing new tracks from the Foreplay EP which is available to buy now, and includes some great tracks. Click here to listen and download.
That's all for today, but there is plenty there to keep you going for a while! Enjoy the weekend, enjoy the sunshine, enjoy the beats and I'll be back soon with more musical treats for you.
