Wifey 30th Deja show / SWING TING NOV '11


Possibly the maddest Radio Session lineup I've ever been involved in. Everyone brought their game on the night - pure studio vibes with crew getting hype, tunes getting pulled, beers getting spilt, selectors going in selecting loose and rowdy! Favourite moments include Ralph LTF and RK running some next-ish from Sunday Roast and Murlo early on, a steely dan juke-jam from Rashad + Spinn and Big Narstee of NAA shouting 'AAAAAAH' for the forward when Mosca drops his dub of Spooky's Spartan (86mins).

My Swing Ting guest mix starts at around 32mins:

1. Funky twinz - energizer (samrai dub)
2. Swing ting - creepin (fat city 14/11/11)
3. Lady chann / glamma kid / sticky - informer (dub)
4. Underground distortion - everything is large (andy mowat's mix)
5. xxxy vs samrai - calango (dub)
6. zed bias - been here before
7. platt - dig (dub)
