Summer vibes!


I know it doesn’t much feel like summer yet, but perhaps this Pluto Shervington refix will do the trick? People have been pestering me for this for a long time now, and the wait is finally over. Downloads are go for a limited time only. You snooze, you lose!

Summer is starting to shape up nicely, and not least because I’ve been asked to get involved with Together – a small, intimate and friendly party in Wiltshire on the first weekend of August. Good times, for a good cause in good company is what it’s all about as far as I’m concerned. I’ve always preferred smaller parties to huge festivals (and unfortunately I’m not getting any younger) so I’m really looking forward to it. Fun for kids of all ages – even my age!

You should come – but don’t sleep, because tickets are strictly limited. Line up, ticket info & everything else you need to know is all on their website, alongside some information about Awamu, the very good cause this event is in aid of. Everyone involved will be volunteering their services free of charge to maximise the charitable benefit. Names continue to be added to the line-up, but regardless of who’s on it, the vibe and company is guaranteed to be spot on.

Awamu Radio has started featuring some of the artists that will be performing at the party & you can click here for my offering – a 72 minute ride through the good stuff, with the usual disinterest in genres. There’s only one genre I’m interested in – GOOD. With the Bangers series currently on haitus I had a bit of a backlog of good stuff & I did my best to cram in as many of them as I could. As it is, there’s still a crate of stuff waiting to be dropped. Cold this mean a glorious return of the Bangers? We’ll see.

You want a download? Buy a ticket & we’ll talk!

Loads more cool stuff happening this summer too – stay tuned.



It’s been quite a journey. 19 journeys & counting in fact. But, for a while at least, I’m calling time on the Bangers mixtapes. If you want one more you best make some NOISE!

I’m looking for YOUR input to make the 20th & final instalment truly special. What are your favourite selections from the series so far? And what tunes should have been included but haven’t been yet?

Number 20 will feature your favourites from the archive, plus the best of your ideas, and I will remix EVERY TRACK that makes the cut.

Use the comment field below to submit your requests & ideas. All participants will get the download link long before the general public do. Not to mention being a part of music history!

I’m not hanging up my headphones, there will be plenty more mixtapes. Just a bit more specialist mostly. I expect. Thanks so much for your support, and if there are any gaps in your collection, you can find download or mixcloud links in the archive.

Massive Set of Bangers (Part 19)

And the bangers just keep on coming! Here’s an hour-long session, which you can stream below, or download here.

While I dearly love taking all the glory, let’s not forget all the amazing artists featured here.  It only takes a few clicks to show them some virtual love, so please, favourite, share, tweet or shout it out the window as you see fit.

If you’ve missed any of these, you can grab the whole set or pick & mix from the archive here.

Bangers mixtape archive!

LoveBangSince I finally got around to uploading the whole set to Mixcloud, I’ve had a lot of recent requests for download links, so I reckoned that it might be a good idea to get links for all the Bangers mixtapes together on a single page.  HERE IT IS!  Download links are 192kbps & you’ll find tracklistings & timestamps on Mixcloud (or elsewhere on this blog if you look hard enough).  All links open in a new tab/window, but for downloads of #7-18 you can just right-click the download link and “save as”.  Safe as.

While I dearly love taking all the glory, let’s not forget all the amazing artists featured here.  It only takes a few clicks to show them some virtual love, so please, favourite, share, tweet or shout it out the window as you see fit.

All the mixtapes are 2 hours long, except the ones marked* – which are an hour long.

If you find any broken links, let me know. I’m off for a bit of a lie down…

Beastie Boys – Nonstop Disco Powerpack (Del Gazeebo Refix)

I’ve received a fair few messages asking for some of the edits & refixes I make exclusively for the Bangers mixtapes.  Usually these are put together “on the fly” while I’m making the mixtape, just moving things around, stretching, editing & adding a few extra layers of production here & there.  In this case, once the mixtape was finished, I subsequently went back & did a bit more additional production before making this mixdown with clean ins & outs, so this version is somewhat superior, and a bit longer.

100 free downloads enabled today.

The original refix is on the latest Bangers mixtape.

RIP MCA.  You were my favourite.
