HIPpopDiscoFUNk – The Culture Vulture summer mix

HIPpopDiscoFUNkI was very excited to be asked to put a mix together for The Culture Vulture; considering the last time I recorded one was nearly 10 years ago, probably on a mini disc it wasn’t without its challenges. Pleased to say I can now fudge my way round Garage Band enough to pull it off.

On the first recording I was surprised to discover the mix was only 30 mins long. Oops.
After a few more nights immersed in lovely vinyl the full 60ish mins was ready.

In the spirt of summer, festivals and carnival, the selection is heavily inspired by Norman Jay’s Good Times sound system at Notting Hill. Fun party tunes, nothing to serious and a lots of variety. I discovered a long time ago, the trick to getting people moving is to play records they know and love. Étreignez le fromage!

The selection represents a small slice of my musical taste and hopefully has something for everybody.
Its been great fun putting it together and I’m looking forward to doing another soon.

Here it is: Lee’s mix

Hope you enjoy it and have a fantastic summer.
