Out To Graze Festival Podgrassed 005

A 2010 Retrospective

Order a CD

This mix is inspired by an Out To Graze chart I put together for issue 13 of Oxfordshire Music Scene (PDF 4.8MB) magazine in April.  I wanted to look back at the top ten tunes from the Simple & Slide stage of Out To Graze last year to evoke some of the great memories we took away from the festival.  I recruited a little help from my co-resident Em Williams, whom you heard in the previous Podgrassed, to give it some perspective as there’s a fair bit of cross-over in what we play, and we sometimes play records back-to-back in the club.

This is a tiny bit special for me, not just because I love the tracks, but also because this is almost certainly the first studio mix I’ve put together in over five years!  Plenty of my live-recorded mixes kicking about on my website here, just nothing carefully crafted so to speak.  Blame it a bit on laziness, blame it a lot on self-criticism...

Sadly, since this was recorded, 2011's Out To Graze Festival has been cancelled.  More information at facebook.com/OutToGraze

This mix has also featured in the first edition of The Sampler (PDF 4.2MB) in May 2011; a new free electronic and dance music magazine for Oxford available in print and download formats.
