Hi! I was in the first 100 people to sign up for HF (#63 baby) so I don't feel any shame in sharing a link to recent mix and blog post I've done as I've been feeling inspired by the Lockdown Legends FB group (hence the title), so I've pulled out a big stack of vintage tunes, mixed them together into two hours of mayhem, and also written a blog post to accompany it.
Here's a taster of the blog post:
London, early 2000’s.
Waiting in line, anticipation growing. You can hear the muffled kickdrum thumping ahead of you. You chat to your friends but everyone is a little bit tense, a little bit coiled. Waiting. Impatient. Ready.
The moment you’ve been waiting for arrives. You’re at the door. You pay. Quick desultory search and in you go.
You push through and are greeted by what you’ve been waiting so impatiently for. Thundering kickdrums, pulsating offbeat bass, energetic melodies. Lasers. Smoke. A writhing mass on the dancefloor.
You stop for a moment to savor the scene before you.
A breakdown hits, soothing chords and hands raised in the air. Slowly at first and then faster and faster a snare roll rises seemingly from the bottom of the earth, spinning the electricity in the room to another level.
Then it pauses, just for a second. A collective exhale.
And the beat kicks back in to cheers and an explosion of energy.
You dive in and join the crowd.
