first off, i must apologise for the huge delay between instalments. life always seems to get in the way you know. but finally, here it is, my 90-minute round up of the year that was 2007. yes, 90 minutes. whenever i try to make a mix, i always try to keep it under 80 minutes, as if i were going to put it on a cd. in this case i had to keep it at this length. it just felt right.

this was the year i really started clubbing, properly, and also the first year i really got my head around making mixes. i had started a little bit in 06, but it was only in 07 that i started making any mixes on a semi-regular basis, and that i felt i had any idea as to what i was doing. in hindsight, well, let’s just say i’ve improved since then. it was great for shows and sets – i managed to see a lot of the djs who’ve helped shape the sound of the big electro scene as it is today. you know, the ed banger crew, boys noize, tiga, simian mobile disco and so on.

on that note, i have to mention the people who didn’t make it. smd are at the top of the list. attack decay sustain release was one of my favourite albums that year, and i got this down, well, i just loved it. another of my favourite albums that year was unkle’s scuzzy desert rock effort war stories. alas, i think none of the tracks on that album, nor any of their remixes, would fit in this mix. as i was looking through pics to use as artwork, i came across a picture of me at pukkelpop drinking a can of jupiler and thought “jupiler room – i forgot to include any digitalism!” such is life. no chromeo either. the mix is book-ended, however, with tracks from what were my two favourite albums of 07. sound of silver and . i hope you enjoy it, and that the wait for the next mix isn’t so long.
