Yes, yes I know it’s October, NOT August… but this bonus mix is made up of a load of bits I bought whilst out and about on August Bank Holiday. I spent £19 in total and there were a few bits I didn’t include… some were sh*t and some just didn’t fit… and there was one CD in the pile which I left out because I was enjoying mucking about with my new PT01 Scratch (prepare for Eric B style cuts!). The CD aside (Onyx BTW… 50p!), I had 1 x LP, about 6 x 12”s and about 20 x 7”s which was a pretty decent haul for me. Nothing mega rare, but all up street… expect a mixture of Funk, Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop.

One of my original ideas for the ‘Digging 4 Victory’ website was for people to take up the ‘challenge’ to do exactly what I did this day… take a budget (£20) and create a 1hr+ mix with what you dug up. I’ve been doing these mixcloud shows for over 2yrs now and this was the first time I actually returned home with enough for a whole show in one go!

I did think about including some audio of the mobile Butcher they always have at my local car boot. Who on earth buys meat from a van? In the Summer?! His audio set up and constant brummy banter is quite entertaining. In the end though I decided against it.

Anyway, there’s no chat… just the tunes… and some rather underwhelming scratching.
