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




Jacob – Shady Sunday Compilation


Ashby de la Zouche – Maxin ‘n’ Relaxin’


This is dedicated to everyone I’ve ever sat in a field with and got high in the sunshine, past, present and future. When the world gets too confusing and the stresses and strains of the world get too much, go find some grass, pop this mixtape in your walkman, turn off your phone, peel of your socks, blank out the spider weaving a web between your toes and enjoy the sunshine……..These are some of my favourite tracks and hope you enjoy them too.Thanks to Pete at MFF for asking me to make this, it was a pleasure and thanks to my other half Ruth, for listening to me mix the same tracks for hours on end in the loft x
