The launch of mixtape number 9 means that summer is finally here and that means it's BBQ time. So, you'll need something smoky and cool to listen to while you mix up some cocktails and marinate the chicken wings. This month's mixtape is all at 100bpm -- enjoy the laid-back jams.
I've thrown down a few old favourites of mine and a couple of covers of some other favourites of mine into this mix. The Bag Raiders are still getting a spot in these mixes, that is proving to be a great album they released. And a wacky rejigging of Al Jarreau's theme from the 80s TV hit "Moonlighting".
I've also been digging out a lot of old disco classics, and that Dennis Parker song "Like an Eagle" is the gayest disco belter I've heard in a long time. It's been sampled heaps, you'll know it when you hear it.
Chuck this onto the iPod dock outside and crack me open a beer, please.
