Mixless vinyl DJ set at Rise record shop in Bristol

20141011_103637Last Saturday I was lucky enough to play a bunch of my favourite records at Rise record shop in Bristol.

Mine was the latest in a series of Rise customer DJ sets – a genius idea which sees shop regulars playing their own choice of music every Saturday afternoon.

I spent a happy few weeks working out what I was going to play – luckily my choice was restricted to vinyl, else I’d have had even more dilemmas.

#keepingitpeel – this is dedicated to John Peel who died ten years ago on 25 October. I miss him greatly but his spirit lives on and he continues to be a massive influence on the music I love and my life in general.

I ran out of time before I got to play everything in my box, but Rise have kindly said they’ll have me back, so watch this space…

Here’s a handy YouTube playlist of what I played with full tracklist below.
