ssg special - october
not only is october a month of the year, it also happens to be what julian smith calls himself when he is knocking out quality DJ sets and productions. i must admit it is only really in the last year or so that i've discovered october's sounds. a strong recommendation from eric cloutier plus a growing interest in caravan recordings was enough to starting paying close attention. and i have been impressed. the mix october has put together for us i think is a great representation of what has attracted me: it has personality and charm, and programmed beautifully. some serious heat here. strongly recommended...
ssg special - october mx
october is a busy man, and he's got plenty coming up, including collabs with appleblim, geiom, cornelius harris and ewan pearson, not to mention a longplayer of his own. he is also playing at this year's free rotation festival, which consistently has one of the best lineups this side of labyrinth. for more info, check his myspace and the home page for the very excellent caravan recordings. my suggestion is to keep a close eye on october and caravan. i'm expecting some really interesting stuff in the future... enjoy the mix. we'll post the tracklist next week. big thanks to october for making this happen.
