ssg special - roger23
we've been having a good run with these ssg specials. and this week roger23 has made sure the streak continues with a delightful, slowburning mix. roger23 is someone i've had on my radar for a while, after hearing a few very nice mixes from him online, and also receiving some recommendations from people that i trust. it was only recently that we connected up, as a result of a fantastic session we posted of roger23 mixing it up with eli verveine. these two spinning together makes perfect sense. both are warm, friendly people and they really convey this in their music. just like eli, what appeals to me about roger23 is that it is all pretty simple: no fancy tricks, no big egos, no silly hats (or techno ponchos), quite simply: no bullshit. roger just plays quality records from the heart. you can really hear the care and passion in the tracks he has chosen, and the way he has constructed the mix. roger is a real selector. and this is what makes the mix he has prepared for the ssgs. great music, lovingly chosen, for your enjoyment. sounds good to me.
