Isolation Mix One

'Don't create congestion in commonly used space', a poster from the Soviet Union, 1950s.

I thought I'd do something new today and maybe make it a regular feature. Everyone and their dog is transmitting DJ sets at the moment. One thing we've all got lots of is time. So in the moments between phoning in to long video conferences, teaching online lessons, wiling away hours absentmindedly surfing the internet and social media, spending time with my family and getting my state sanctioned daily exercise allowance I've also put together the first Bagging Area mix, fifty four minutes of music called Isolation Mix 1.

It's actually Isolation Mix 1.1, the first one wasn't quite right and I removed a couple of tracks and replaced them with some other ones. It's a mix of old and new, largely ambient and instrumental, a bit of dub and dub techno in there and appearances from Rutger Hauer and a retired French footballer.

I shall enjoy this on my walk later today, although I have to go to the shop for Mrs Sniper's Mum. Not sure what to listen to for that experience.

That poster is so appropriate for my childrens habit of dropping their stuff in our commonly used spaces.

Very nice! I have now found a Vangelis track that doesn't annoy me too!

Great job Adam. A highlight in these days. Looking forward to the next edition.
