Pulling tracks together for these mixes is a fascinating way to consider music and fiinding the common elements to link things together. In part the approach is based on a quote we were often reminded of, at Art School, was by the English painter Walter Sickert which goes something like ‘a little bit of your last colour goes into your next colour – to create harmony’.

So in this setting, despite decades, genres, all sorts of oil and water type variables, how can I create a mix that floats entertainingly, being cohesive, and all over the place at the same time? It’s also interesting to consider the new music we are discovering, and writing about, in the midst of the work that’s possibly influenced it in the first place…
