Something wicked this way comes : killer essential mixes

DJ Shadow – 30th March 2003

What the fuck! Radio 1’s website conveniently seems to miss this o­ne out, despite having all the others for this year! Never mind, eh…..

Anyway…. the mix….. well, sort of split down the middle, with loads of hip hop for the first hour and then goes into older, more obscure tracks for the second half. A good mix and a must for any DJ Shadow fan.

Unkle Sounds – 6th January 2002

Woohoo! I actually found a tracklisting….. not had much luck with that today. What can I say, it’s an Unkle mix set. If you like Unkle and haven’t got it already, you need it. If you’ve already got Big Brother is Watching you might not want to bother as it’s the same mix.

Yeah, that pissed me off to say the least when I bought it!

Krafty Kuts – 27th February 2005

Krafty Kuts used to be my hero, but unfortunately he seems to have changed direction a bit and I’m not so keen now. That said, I think I’ve got to stick this o­n my iPod and have a few more listens to it before my final judgement. The first 20 minutes had me bouncing about in my chair but I got a bit bored after that and didn’t listen much further, but having just flicked through it and checked the tracklisting I think I might have been a bit too hasty. For o­ne I’ve just heard o­ne of the tracks which takes me back to a very nice night out (though I’m not sure which o­ne, think it might have been at The Glade a few weeks ago), think it’s Alex Dolby, Hazy Way, about 90 minutes in, pure ecstasy 😉 Sort of gets me thinking of Angel’s go Bald crossed with Layo and Bushwacka. Anyway, it’s definitely recommended to be worth the download, can never have too much Krafty.
