Guest Mix 014: Nathan Mullings

It’s been a while since we’ve had a guest mix form everyones favourite DJ and part of the family Nathan Mullings. This time he surprised me with a mix of latin music! Not being an expert I think its largley Salsa, Cumbia with some Guaguanco but all very enjoyable. He’s also suggested a couple of charities that are important to him and we’d love you to donate to if you’re enjoying the mix as I’m sure you will!

A Ghetto Hour 62: All Lovers Get Ready 5

My first ‘All Lovers Get Ready’ mix was 9 years ago now, seems like a good time to drop another one! Almost 2 hours of Lovers Rock to welcome spring and the slow return to some kind of normal life. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to play some of these to some of you in person and we can all dance around to sweet Lovers Rock! Listen, enjoy and share with your loved ones.

A Ghetto Hour 061: Quiet Storm

A slow and sultry mix for slow, dark rainy days in the UK. My interpretation of the Quiet Storm genre, to help those unfamiliar with the term here’s a few choice quotes form wikipedia ‘genre of contemporary R&B, performed in a smooth, romantic, jazz-influenced style’ sounds nice! ‘Quiet storm was marketed to upscale mature audiences during the 1980s’ My vibe! A belated happy new year and get ready to be romanced in late 80’s style.

A Ghetto Hour 060: Lockdown Christmas Party

Warning this mix contains no Christmas music! However it is a lovely selection of danceable songs from around the world with a strong Disco theme running throughout. Perfect to dance to, with your family, friends, whoever you’re stuck with or by yourself, a solo dance is often best! Happy Christmas and hopefully next year will be a better one for sharing, playing, making, buying and dancing to music.

A Ghetto Hour 059: A Birthday Mix for a Ghettospheric Original

This mix is dedicated to Christian, who started Ghettospheric with me something like 12 years ago. He’s rarely seen behind the decks now but still introduces me to new music all the time and has great taste! As we can’t hangout and play records today here are few we’ve both loved over the years and a few that are new to me and I’m sure he’ll like to. A easy going selection of modern soul, rare groove and some classic soul. Happy Birthday Christian and I hope everyone enjoys this mix!

A Ghetto Hour 57: Turkish Vibes

This mix was recorded after a week of fairly heavy record shopping in Istanbul and Ankara. I was introduced to Turkish psychedelic rock, folk, arabesque disco and a load of other exciting and soulful records a year a ago. There’s some real classics on here that have long been popular in Turkey and abroad, and a few rarer records I had to search a bit for. With an excellent guide to the world of Turkish music there’ll be plenty more mixes like this one. Enjoy, share and as always the mixes are free so if you feel inclined to donate to a charity here’s a good one supporting Turkish women.

A Ghetto Hour 054: Electric Soul

I’ve not recorded a mix in a while, instead taking time to focus on and process the current worldwide protests for necessary change and how I can help. This mix and all of my mixes are 95% black musicians and 100% black music, music which has essentially shaped my existence. I’m sure a lot of you feel the same, so if you do and are you’re enjoying this or any of my mixes please think about donating to one of the charities at the bottom of this blurb. This mix is loosely the more electronic side of soul music, mid to late 80’s but not quite straight up boogie. Please enjoy, have a dance and share but also think about where and who the music comes from and what needs to be done to support this long and ongoing struggle.
