NYE 23

Let's wave goodbye to 2023 with the final Sunday mix of the year, this one stretching out with an hour and thirteen minute's worth of tunes from this year, not exactly a Best Of 2023 (although these are among the best of this year) more of a Some Of 2023. A mixture of trippy, dubby electronic music, throbbing dance tunes, chuggy indie dance, Balearic pop and Dublin guitar slinging sturm und drang. 

Happy New Year. Have fun tonight however you're choosing to celebrate. Thank you to everyone who's come here this year, to read and comment. I don't think I write this thing with an audience in mind but it helps to know that there is one, and that the people that populate it and places like this one are defintely a community. The comments and responses, particularly to some of the more personal, grief related posts, are genuinely much appreciated and a real support. Thank you, all of you. 

Onwards into 24.

Superb mix, Adam, that Khidja track is a like a last minute goal to win the cup, love it.

Wishing you, Lou and Eliza all the best for 2024, and a year of healing, happy memories and new opportunities. And great music, of course!

Happy new year everyone, been out unexpectedly here.
Thanks for all the kind words.

Khayem- love the description of the Khidja track.
C- captured the cat last weekend at Salford Quays with a mighty hangover. He seemed to be waving directly at me.
Jesse- I hope not. BPMs might be wayward but vibe is spot on I think.
