All week it looked like this was going to be a wet one, but the rain held off, just about, and it was a welcome warm day.  The vibe on this boat gets better and better each trip, of which there are several each year and this was another sell out.  I was thrilled throwing this mix together; had no idea what I was gonna play although I'd bought some new tunes the night before that would obviously get a look in.  There's productions from my usual favourites like Lee Mortimer, HiJack, and there's also works from Stupid Fresh, Deadmau5, Jon Gurd, oh and a belter known only as Mr Whobble ;)

This mix was recorded live on 4th May 2008 on a boat on The Thames in Oxford for Simple & Slide.

Geeky note: as you may be able to tell, I've discovered the bit-crunch effect.
