My choice for Mix of The Week is something which we haven’t featured before, a live club mix. I’m always a little dubious about listening to mixes recorded in clubs whilst at home or on the bus or whatever as I think the club experience can be a little hard to translate. However this gem caught my attention the first time I heard it and has been on regular rotation since.
The mix is by up and coming Irish producer/DJ Shane Linehan and was recorded late last year at a party called Pogo at The Twisted Pepper in Dublin. I had the pleasure of meeting Shane and hearing him play at Raw Culture at La Cheetah in Glasgow, he’s a top bloke and a great DJ. This mix is a bit tougher than I expected from him and has some real party tracks. The crowd noises really add to the vibes too. Enjoy, and check out Shanes releases on Local Talk Records, WYS!, and his own excellent Basic Grooves Recordings.
