Here we have the final archived session from summer 2018. From here, it's all newer, more recent stuff. Well, the sets will be. The music will always be a bit on the older side because recent music generally sucks balls! So, it's random house yet again. Am I biased towards house music? If you haven't … Continue reading New Mixcloud Upload–Random House Classics 16 (1993–2006)
Afternoon everyone. Here's presenting the penultimate session of the seven archived sessions from summer 2018. Just one more to go and then it's back to making new sessions. As you can probably tell from the number 15, I'm rather fond of my random house classics sets. Will there be many more to follow? The chances … Continue reading New Mixcloud Upload–Random House Classics 15 (1998–2016)
The fourth of the seven archived mixes I keep harping on about has landed! Back to house for this one. The majority of the tracks hail from Y2K onwards with a mixture of vocal, deep, and funky stuff. Even the most ardent of house music aficionados will likely not have heard a few of these. … Continue reading New Mixcloud Upload–Random House Classics 14 (1999–2014)

At the beginning I suppose. The first couple of months of 2018 went like most … Continue reading Thank F**k That’s Over…
The old saying goes that there’s nothing as certain as death and taxes. In the modern western world, I think we can add Christmas to that list too. Once you hit October it consumes pretty much everything going forward from there. Weeks and weeks of preparation for one day. As a child, I loved Christmas. … Continue reading Five Things I Hate About Christmas
The UK in 2018 is a place of great variation. Walk into Manchester city centre and you’ll be greeted by an array of different faces, creeds, and colours; sights, sounds, and smells. It’s a very British city with a very multicultural heartbeat. There are street markets serving all kinds of food from around the world. … Continue reading Is Multiculturalism the Death of British Culture?
I can’t really lie: I wasn’t massively looking forward to the holiday in Turkey. Alright, maybe that’s not strictly true. I was looking forward to it, just not as much as I’d looked forward to holidays in the past. There were too many question marks hanging over it concerning a multitude of issues.
