musicforfriends is a platform for friends/DJs/music lovers to put together mixes that are perhaps a little more personal. Each mix is to be dedicated to someone by the artist. This may mean that the mix is compiled with someone in mind or that the mix follow a particular theme or feel that reminds them of that person.

The music speaks for itself
Laidback balaeric inspired obscurities and rarities. Hip hop & disco infused ‘mushroom jazz’ style beats and ‘cosmic soul’. Classic and modern (nu) disco edits, from warm-up through to driving dance floor E disco & googie boogie. Chuggy ‘a love from outer space’ style electronica and dubby pitched down dance floor sounds. Slow rolling deep club trax, pacey groove driven rhythmns and all that is good in the world of house and electronica from around the globe.
