Mr Double Down Presents The Redux Mix

Welcome Back!

Firstly let me wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope the recent holiday period was a joyful and productive one!

Last year was a turbulent time around these parts to say the least! A new job, new home and a few real life issues to deal with along the way here, have meant that my little musical corner has been left somewhat neglected and unloved!

One thing I have managed to make time for and keep a grip on is digging for new 45s, and as such have managed to stock pile a lot of new stuff to share here once a suitable sized chunk of time became available.

So here we go with a new selection of records to help ease you into the new year! Today's mix is a nicely paced bag of Soul, Northern, Funk and R&B all taken from 45s that I've recently procured.

There's definitely a few solid stand out tunes in here that have proved real dance floor shakers at our monthly Hook & Sling nights.

'The Lost Generation', 'Peoples Choice' and 'Betty Harris' to name just three have become big favourites on the dance floor at The Vestry. It's always nice to see people dancing to stuff which is off the musical beaten track as it were!

The monthly night at The Vestry has been going from strength to strength, consistently seeing it becoming one in one out on the doors by 10pm, which is always great to see.

As always your continued support is appreciated and we've got some great things lined up for you this year so keep an ear to the ground for details!

So back to today's mix, pull down the ones and zeros, sit back and enjoy 72 minutes of the 'Good Stuff'. Stay safe and I'll be back here shortly!
