Today I’m celebrating my 34th birthday (yes, I’m really that old!) Well, strictly speaking I did a lot of celebrating last night and hence I have a rather sore head today. If you’re ever in the Manchester area then check out a great little cocktail bar called Socio Rehab in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. It’s an awesome, dark and dingy little bar that does fantastic cocktails. Plenty of fun was had by everyone and our wallets are a lot emptier for their London-style drinks prices!

Anyway, what better cure for a hangover than to make a funky house music mix for you guys. Hopefully I can hold the mixing together.

  26. Thank you for this hot mix. I coudn’t get any house mix like that – now I’ve found! I hope you will play still so good black vocal house.
    Best wishes.

  27. Thanks rddfm! You’ll find plenty of quality house music here and also a house music podcast every 2 weeks. What more could you want? 😉

  28. Poznan (Poland) is in the house! 😉

  29. Big shout out to everyone in Poland! 😉

  30. which track kicks in around 38:10? Lovin that one at the moment..
    may be on the track lists, if it’s not too much trouble, indicate at which point the songs mix? just so I don’t have to recount all the songs again! If it’s hassle, then don’t worry 😉
    listening again for the millionth time!!

  31. Kit – the track you’re after is Ben Macklin “Feel Together” on the French Serial Recordings label. Not sure who will be releasing it in NZ.

    I’ll try and put down the timestamp for each tune but it might take me a while to get them released. I’ll investigate a good way to do this that doesn’t take too much time I think.

  32. Moscow (Russia) is in the house!
    S dnyem rogdenia tebya! Best wishes and keep it cool! Sory for late :((

  33. Hey Danis! Big up to my Moscow crew! 😉
