This mix was originally done as a wedding present for my friends Jamie and Tessa. Originally I had planned to do a mix of house tunes for Tessa and techno tunes for Jamie, but time considerations ended up meaning that I had to do one mix to please both of them!

With this mix I obviously wasn’t trying to be super-obscure – I was quite happy to put on some huge hits, some very obvious anthems, and not impress them with how underground I am, maaaaan (they know that anyways!). The idea, as ever, was to take the listener on a journey, in this case from house to tech-house to funky techno to electro-techno, taking in many massive tunes, such as ‘Music Sounds Better With Your’, ‘Fly Life’ and ‘Silver Screen Shower Scene’ along with some more underground sounds. This version is the second take of the mix I did (the first one was alright, but I felt that a few of the tunes needed to be changed, and this second version flows very nicely), and, all in all, I think it turned out very nicely.

So, I ummed and ahhed about putting this up, because in all honesty I think it’s a bit tacky to do so, but Jamie said it was no problem, so I thought I might as well go for it. Of course, there’s always plenty of time for regrets later.

I hope Jamie and Tessa don’t have second thoughts about me posting this, and that they have a long and happy life together!
