A couple of weeks ago when posting 7 Ways To Love I mentioned a mixtape I had back in the early 90s that was filled with Balearic goodness that I thought that I would try and replicate in some way. I fully intended to make an actual tape using turntable and tape deck but don't have any blank tapes, I could have taped over one of the ones in the cupboard I suppose or paid a fortune on eBay for some but I that would be pointless as then I would have to buy a Walkman if I wanted to listen to the tape anywhere but the dining room. So yesterday once I turned the work laptop off I decided to download some mixing software and give it a go.
Below is the result of my first effort put together in under an hour just using the basics, hopefully I will get better with time and practice although some would say that that never happened when I had two turntables and a mixer a long time ago. The tracks I know are all a bit obvious but it's okay.
Dove - Fallen (Darkest Hour)/Orchestra JB - Come Alive (Love In London mix)//The Aloof - Never Get Out Of The Boat (Gosh mix)/Voices of Africa - Hoomba Hoomba/Orchestra JB - Free Spirit (Slow Burn)/Orbital - Belfast/Primal Scream - Come Together (Weatherall)/Saint Etienne - Kiss And Make Up (Midsummer Madness)
