I know, I know. It’s been ages. And I’m sorry about that. I’ve been meaning to do a mix for such a long time but things have just been crazy busy the last few months. A piss-poor excuse, I know. I actually had a mix prepared and ready to record last month. I got it as far as the first run-through stage and when I’d finished I totally hated it so threw it in the bin. While it was annoying to have gone through most of the hard work and end up with nothing, it just didn’t feel right and I wouldn’t have been happy putting it out into the world; so I started again.
This time around, the track selection came to me far easier. Lots of it is very new, some not-so-much and some are new versions of classics (One Night in Heaven, anyone?). This one fell into place a lot quicker than it usually would when starting from scratch; and I managed the run-through and recording in one day, so something was right about it.
In other news, things have indeed been mental busy both at work and at home. Yes we’ve moved again. Hopefully for the last time for a while. I love our new place too much and the thoughts of packing boxes again will send me into an apoplectic rage. Hopefully things will be a bit quieter in the coming months so a) I can record more and b) actually enjoy the summer. Wine and picnics in the parks are what I’m most looking forward to.
Speaking of summer and drinking, I’ll be in Dublin for Pride next month. And you never know, I might just pop out of retirement for a little gig.
In the meantime, I hope you like Let’s Dance (we miss you, Bowie). Share it with your friends, lovers, enemies, parents and pets.
