Velanche’s Playtime 005

Well, so much for bi-weekly! You are getting these shows just as fast as I can make them. You, my dear listeners, should be grateful. There’s just a greta deal of fresh and delicious sounds that have been filling up my inbox or, in some cases, making their way via “snail” mail to my post box.

Flipping things this week are a bit more of the downbeat/non-dance delights. But, I’ve also thrown in a few beat-laden goodies to suit the dancers in all of you.

And it’s not just me, for this week I’ve also included a mini-mix from the one, the only Mr. Scruff. There’s a new mix compilation to coincide with the Southport Weekender music festival that happens in the UK every so often, and on the ninth edition of the mix series, both Mr. Scruff and DJ Spinna have been asked to bring their considerable talents, and their brilliant taste in picking the musical gems, to the mix collection. As part of this week’s show, Mr. Scruff features selections from his side of the comp. Look for it in full, out now on Miroma Music. Big ups to Sarah at Favouritizm for providing the goods.

My guess is that sooner, rather than later, you will get yet another serious collection of feet-shuffling bombs before you can say bi-weekly again…probably by the end of next weekend, in fact. Keep your eyes open.

I hope you enjoy this week’s episode; thanks, as ever, for listening.
