The man who’s the brains behind Sheffield/London based Secret Diaries was recently asked to make a mix for Stock-71, the French music website. Unfortunately he’s not all that good at following instructions… Luckily this means he made two mixes, instead of the one they asked for. He’s split them into ‘Day’ and ‘Night’, with the songs he’s selected fitting the moods appropriately. Continue reading

Mr. Little Jeans / Friendly Fires
Oops, I’m a couple of days late. Well, I’ll blame it on being at home and having all the standard christmas household chores distracting me. Anyway, a couple of absolutely great ones for you this week. First up is a delightful remix by RAC. The original is by Mr. Little Jeans, a Norwegian singer/songwriter based in London. The song has got a throbbing, melodic bassline that carries on through almost the entire song and a really good vocal. It’s difficult to find out much about her other than the fact that she’s Scandinavian, writes great pop songs and is being tipped to get some serious exposure over the next 12 months. So sit back and enjoy this one.
Your second treat this week is another remix, this time by Air France. Funnily enough they are also from the very northern bit of Europe, hailing from Sweden. They’ve been described as ‘post-rave bliss’ by FACT Magazine (who put out some amazing mixtapes) and this couldn’t be more accurate. Imagine listening to this song quietly after a long night out and you’ll get exactly what they mean. It’s a little up-tempo but it is most definitely chilled out enough to make it on to this playlist. I’ve got to credit Sheffield’s own Lionel Vinyl for telling me about this one… It’s one of his favourites, and that makes it worth a ride!
Sorry that they’re both remixes this week… I’ll have a little think and try to put up a couple of originals for my next post. Have a great Christmas and see you in the new year.
