What is it with bank holidays?  I mean, all we want is one day of half decent sunshine.  Fortunately, again, the clouds didn't piss themselves, but we'd arranged a more covered boat at short notice because the forecast looked like utter shite.  I'll say it again, the vibe on our boat parties get better and better each trip, and nearly every one is selling out so the reputation is preceding them and I'm so proud to be a part of them.  As you can tell from the pic I was more than a little hyped when I came off the decks (mine was the second slot of five).

I threw a bit of a curve ball at the start of my set and played some Jazz... yes, Jazz.  You'll hear why ;)  There's productions from Lee Mortimer, Worthy, Sébastien Léger, Riva Starr, and some bits on Second Session.

This mix was recorded live on 25th May 2008 on a boat on The Thames in Oxford for Simple & Slide.

Quality note: there's a little bit of distortion in the second half of the mix due to the system being ramped ;)
