*Parts 1 and 2 have been uploaded to my Mixcloud - link here:
It's been quite a while since I uploaded my last mixtape.
After at least 3 years of discovering new music and sitting on a lot of old tunes too, I finally decided to create a new mix - this time, just in time for the summer sunshine (or the winter, if you're in the southern hemisphere!)
I wanted to create a mix that captured the essence of my first mix, a whole 5 years ago (entitled "Summer Re-Spray", link in bio), but reflected the growth of my musical preferences as well as my personal growth over this past half a decade.
I would be straight lying through my teeth if I said that this was easy to write and record! In fact, it took me around 2 years on and off and a lot of blood, sweat and tears along the way in order to create a mixtape that showcased the more chilled, yet emotive side of the house music that I love and that shapes who I am.
Thus, I created a continuous mega mix, which has been split into different parts - this is Part 4 / 9.
This part starts off as a continuation of the end of Part 3, and is composed of contrasting darker, chunkier, moodier, brooding and melodic club-ready cuts of house and deep house to create a journey through every shade of the sunset to the early hours of dawn - a selection of flavours from labels such as Hot Creations, Enormous Tunes, Anjunadeep and Ellum to name a few.
This was recorded on a pair of Pioneer CDJ850's and a DJM700 mixer, using a Reloop Tape. Unfortunately, my decks are quite old and not as smooth as before (eg. with loops), so at times I rushed when recording this mix and the transitions didn't come out as smooth as I'd hoped! Also the recording device/decks had some minor hiccups whilst recording, so at times the audio may sound slightly corrupted... however the vast vast majority of the file is perfectly listenable :)
I will be uploading new Parts of the Summer Mixtape in the coming weeks, and removing old Parts/mixes from my Soundcloud (but don't worry, I will be uploading those to my Mixcloud account ~ Link in bio)
If you're at the beach, at the pool, travelling or wherever you may be: sit back, relax, turn the volume up and enjoy this mix :)
Thank you for listening and feedback, as always, is very welcome <3
Have a fantastic day xxx
