Mixtape Wednesday features hand-picked vinyl mixes and the record-collectors who created them. Find out what inspired this mix in the section below.
Your Name + Location:
Everything is Everything - London, England. I work behind the counter at Sounds Of The Universe record shop in Soho, A&R for the shop label and Soul Jazz Records - drink tea and eat toast.
What inspired this mix? Tell us a little about it:
I suppose it's a little taster of what you can expect to hear when I play out.. this time ploughing through lots of soul 45's along side a few all time favourites. I normally try and play for as long as I can, not in a 'hogging the decks' kind of way but just to be able to take full control over what's going on and have time to cram in lots of different styles.
What was your process for putting the mix together?
The records were all pushed through a mixer iv'e been putting together for the past two years - finally it has power!
Favorite song on the mix?
Tough one, I'm crazy about them all.. 'Dee Edwards - I Can Deal With That', 2nd track in or maybe 'Split Decision Band - Watchin' Out', had been after that for quite a while!
What’s next on your plate these days?
August is looking good, a few parties with GoldWing and Cherry Flava, two of my favourite DJ's in London! Off with a heavy bag of records to the Dimensions festival in Croatia then I'll be in Prague early September .. working on those air miles!
Everyone at Sounds Of The Universe, all the record dealers that constantly hook me up with some great records, The NTS family and the lady who's just giving me a free tea in this Cafe I'm in now! Cheers!
