Wow – #50, how did that happen?
Seems like it was only yesterday that I was working out what exactly I could do with this blog, other than putting my own mixes up on here and decided to share a few of the audio gems that my incessant music geekery found out, and here I am a year later (yes, I know, I missed a couple) having shared 150 tracks.

If you like your soul served with attitude then wrap your ears around this one. There’s also a ‘guys and gal working hard in the studio’ video to go with it.
