A Strangely Isolated Place Guest Mix

I have just finished a mix of some tunes to share a long coach journey with, perfect for staring out of a window as the world passes by. I wrote a few words about the thoughts behind the mix for the blog

“When I was younger I used to go on long coach journeys just to escape. I made up C90 mixtapes and then bought a return ticket for somewhere far away. I would travel through the day and night watching the world pass by me in a blur and listen to my Walkman and disappear somewhere inside myself to a place I wanted to be. It was if there wasn’t any real world just a backdrop to the music. Nowadays I make my own music to do the same thing. This mix is an attempt to recreate the feel of those tapes and those journeys.”

Loveless Music Group

For those who don’t know the Loveless Music Group is the rather cool New York promotion/musician/etc collective responsible for NY gigs featuring such luminaries as Ulrich Schnauss, Manual and a whole host of others. If you lived in New York you would almost certainly be trying to go to every thing they did; if I lived there I would almost certainly be trying to blag my way onto a gig. Recently they started a record label, self storage recordings, and were kind enough to include my track “suddenly something good” on the first release, a compilation featuring Ulrich, Auburn Lull, Soundpool and a whole host of other great acts, including LMG prime mover Andy Durutti’s band Luxa.


They have the usual myspace but more importantly they blog at  where they have recently been posting some mp3 mixes by friends including a great one from Manual and, most recently, a winterlight one which gave me the opportunity to highlight some great music that accompanies my daily seastaring and latte moments. From an Epic 45 track only released on last years super limited Fugues compilation (more on Fugues later) to old favourites like Crisopa and port-royal, it also contains the very lovely ‘Understand Theory’ from my good friend Luga. Please have a listen, you can find it here.
