A Year in The Cloud………..

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

I can’t believe it’s been a little over a year since I first signed onto Mixcloud! I never thought I’d get so into it as I have done. I also didn’t think I would do as anything as daft as my challenge to upload 52 mixes in a year.

Unfortunately I didn’t start that from the very start of my time there but it’s been good trying to get new stuff up as well as looking back at old material.

Also it’s a shame that I didn’t quite get there  (I was just 6 uploads short), but hey, it was fun & I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback for the stuff I did manage to put up.

I’ve also come across a lot of nice, helpful ‘casters, whose support has been invaluable & I thank them, as well as you guys, for supporting me, alongside everyone on Mixcloud, making it a great community, not just a great website.


Well, if you’re interested, here’s a selection of what I did………

The Funk Begins At 40…………………..

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Who’d thought I’d get this far?

I’m still a way into my challenge & there’s a few months to go, but at the moment I’ve realised I’ve go a total of 40 mixes uploaded on Mixcloud!

Take off 7 & I’ve still got a few to go – remember I’m starting this challenge from ‘In My Bags’. Still it’s quite an achievement for me.

If the lovely guys over at Mixcloud have still got that widget you should be able to see all of them here.

If not, just head over to my Mixcloud page here.

Hola Formentera!!

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Had a great break (yes I said before) & it’s inspired me with another collection.

A change is as good as a rest, & I thing I got both (sort of).

Formentera is really picturesque & our recent holiday helped drive this out of my brain onto Mixcloud….

Hope you like it..



I also recently reached the halfway point in my (ludicrous) challenge.


This is the mix that did it.


I hoped to do something special, but thing have been so hectic I didn’t get round to it.

Still enjoy the second half my original ‘Dungeon Tapes’ session:

Bobby’s Basement

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Not a batchelor’s den or scene for horror-style ubtchery, but the B-side of a tape I made for my Sister-in-law, as she said she’d got nothing fresh to listen to. I found the original tape, cleaned it up & edited it to run as a segued mixtape.


By the way, the basement in her house has been dealt with after much arguing & mucking about from the contractors………..


10% of the way there: Mix #6

Been a bit of a trial getting this online, but you know what? I’m keeping it.
