This is the first of the 20-20 mixes I'll be posting as a farewell to you all. I'm retiring from djing after nearly 19yrs and will post my top 20 songs over 20 categories starting with the "Chill Out Session". There will be a brief description on the release and the venues the tracks were mainly played. Will also add the years I played at relevant venues. Turn on, tune in and bliss out.

10. Soul II Soul - Back To Life: Released in '89 this went hand in hand with the above track. Utterly timeless tune.
11. BBG - Snappiness: Released in '90 this was just one of those tracks you discover as a DJ startin' out back in the early '90's. It was classic then and classic now.
12. Incognito - Out Of The Storm (C's Planet E Special Mix): Released in '96 this is one of my favourite tracks of all time. Carl Craig's reconstruction is absolutely breath-taking. Respect to Rudy Perone from Central Station for this one.
13. Rae & Christian - All I Ask (feat Veba): Released in '98 and another Phillimores late arvo anthem.
14. Alice Smith - Love Endevour (Maurice Fulton Mix): Released in '06 and it still gets played out regularly to this day. This one gets canned at Luxe Bar. Respect to Michelle & Andy (Luxe Bar 2003-2012)
15. Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy (Perfecto Mix): Released on the '91 single this track had such a profound influence on me that it never left the crate. The album "Blue Lines" is in my top 5 of all time.
16. Amp Fiddler - Faith (Jazzanova Remix): Released in '06 on the album "Afro Strut". Underrated, this cat is pure silk and I've played every single he has ever released at Luxe Bar.
17. Akasha - Crazy Baby (Groove Armada's Presque Celebre Mix): Released in '99 on a remix EP, it had Phillmores written all over it.
18. AIM - Sail (Rae & Christian Mix): Released in '99 and no doubt I got this one off Tim at Mills. Perfect sundowner tune. Respect to Mills Records, Freo.
19. Nightmares On Wax - Stars: Released on the album "Smokers Delight" in '95. I could listen to the album back to back and never get sick of it.
20. Neneh Cherry - Move With Me: Released in '92 on the "Homebrew' album. One of my favourite albums from one of my favourite female artists. She is a big reason I love music. "Into a world I plunge through my headphones..."
