musicforfriends – Ollie – Big hair & big snares

I love the 80’s – the glossy production, the big snares, the big extended mixes that give depth to some really great pop songs.

Most of the tunes on this selection you’ll know, one or two you might not be familiar with, but they’re all big favourites of mine

I dedicate this mix to my beautiful girls Amy and Beatrix – Each day I’m in total awe of how wonderful you both are and I’m beside myself with excitement at the thought of sharing a life full of laughter, happiness and love with you both




James Barnsley – Something for the Sun

I have been wanting to do a mix like this for a long time now, something totally different to what i normally do and giving my people something good to listen to on those hot sunny days, compiling some of my favorite records i have collected over the years that make me feel good ranging from hip hop, funk, reggae and soul. I would like to dedicate this mix to every one I love and every one who has made me laugh, I hope you all enjoy the mix…happy baskin xx

Paolo Riozzi – Music therapy mix

On the 1st April i will be running the Reading Half Marathon for Nordoff Robins Music Therapy charity. Nordoff Robbins helps people from all walks of life overcome physical and mental strife through music. Running is my favourite way to absorb new music, and the escapism it gives me really helps to sort my head out with the day-to day B.S. we all have to deal with. I think everyone has had a moment in their life where music has struck a personal chord; inspired them or pulled them through rough times. This mix is dedicated to ALL of YOU who have felt that, acted on it, and let music play a large part in your life. This is me asking you to donate to a good cause and give a little back. Sponsor me: Read more: The mix itself is a live DJ set of all my favourite sounds, shapes, labels & producers that i’m into. Old tracks and newer ones through dub, house & techno. Enjoy the music & give what you can guys! x
