It's not easy compiling a broken beat mix in today's musical climate. Few are making it like they used to and there's no dedicated regular nights to showcase any new music, which is fine I guess, Because people aren't producing it (well I definitely ain't hearing it. Though Kaidi & Mark Force say there are holding). So a musical aggregator like myself has to wade through the new releases digital cause they mostly are these days. with little in the way of mainstream playlists on DJ sets to give a heads on what's forthcoming.
But with a sprinkling of the older stuff still not spun on the cave 1's and 2's, a dubstep tune (shocker) and some goodies from the old hands of the game (Mr Dego & Seiji). I bring you probably the best broken beat mix you've/you'll hear all year.

Similar mixed bag to the music I used to play at Cocomo. Remember that place? Nah i didn't think so, lol

PS, and a massive big up to Fromwood (http://soundcloud.com/fromwood) for the track, what I need more of these days, great stuff.
I suppose now that I (believe I) know the number of regular listeners you guess you would say I should look to expand on those numbers, and I yes you could say the previous show was an attempt to do so, with some lovely dnb rollers that should appeal to the mainstream dnb market (if back in 2004), this podcast takes in it an sharp twist, starting up sythy and autonomic before hitting euphoric amens then drifting into a dark choppy jungle of amens before finishing in the interstellar darkness all without a drop of liquid in slight. (Again yes the picture has water, so again a slight contradiction but once you're 10 minutes in I think you'll find the image fitting)
Something that may not suit the casual dnb listener but goes deep in terms of bass and selection
I suppose this is half a step away from pots and pans, but believe me, that's coming soon too.

If there are any listeners left after this I'll see you on the other side for some verses action.
And I return,
Things in the den are going amazingly well, But the summer in London is finally here (so they say), and a icy field is your visual simulation, you would think I wasn't happy about the weather. Maybe it's just my imagination being on the haunting wintery setting, that makes this image seem relatable to this mix as it reaches 'Ancestral'. Apart from that little section the mix has real summer feel to it, rollers from start to finish. You cannot not enjoy it. (Yes that was intentional)
Rave Save? I 'little' deplorable I hear you say? Well I suppose in sum respect you're right, it's very barley-esque, but f@*% it,
It's a quote from Human Traffic which I thought was a great film and this is a great party mix without a 'tough' tune in sight. so the mix does what is says on the ti(n/tile) regardless of the image used.

Ohhh and behind the scenes it's all kicking off down at the community forums at podomatic, (sounds so village like) podcasters aren't happy with the new rankings and statistics supplied, but regardless of them you can help me out by 'liking' podcast and 'playlisting' the mixes if you're a podomatic member or playing and embedding (now enabled) on your blogs/tweeets/facebooks.
Ofcourse, no pressure I'll still be here regardless, lol
BACK, that's right!
Handing out the goodies once again, this time of the broken variety, slim pickings as that is this days. When combined with some classics, digging and breaks create a lovely summery mix for you folks.
It's times like these that I remember why I started mixing tunes over seven summers and (it's actually eight, but hey I had some alliteration going there!) and why I still love doing this today.(Though none of these artist today actually got me mixing)
I shouldn't really be giving away my musical past so candidly. If I ever start making tunes and giving interviews, I want to be able to give the standard "I starting DJing in the early 90's playing acid house and techno and breaks" line or face expulsion from the underground community, but Hey F@*& It

Ohhhhh and no I didn't get the name from the release Blue Mar Ten release I've only just seen that and I've had this name for over a year now. So don't start.
AND on final notes, really sorry to anyone who is noticing the dodge audio quality on the last few mixes will sort out a better way of recording ASAP, and after to listening this on the way to work I might start uploading a higher quality version to my soundcloud for the first (and probably only) 100 people because, with this mix I fully see that 128k MP3s barely do the music justice and the WAV sounds so much fuller.
Till the next one, Enjoy &
