Thursday Mixes

Been moving/unpacking all week so I haven't had time to update. In the meantime, here are some older gems:



-Boogie is the new disco: some brilliant leftfield, lo-fi moments on Kid Inquisitive/Soul Persuasion's "Dirt in the Keytar" mix (stay for the Cojo)

-Oh guitar, how we have neglected you this century. Over at Endless Mixtape, a tribute to the six million things you can do with six strings

-Greg Wilson's "Essential Mix" (linked here a couple months back) has been the soundtrack of my summer. Here's "No Sell Out," a mix of 82/83 electro funk he did for A Guy Called Gerald. (And here's the story of Greg's massive influence on Gerald and other kids coming of age in Manchester in the early 1980s.)
