ADVENT 2: A Hard Toke In – The Remixtape

In 31minutes and 8 seconds…


Here it is. A Hard Toke In – The Remixtape.

First person to guess why its called that wins a no-prize!

Anyway. This is is a mixtape comprising of remixes of songs by me and my peoples by YOU, the clever, brillaint, uber-talented readerlisteners of this website.

I was amazed, truly, by the volume, and quality of the submissions. I could have made another, ooh, three tapes easy. If your remix didn’t feature in the end, don’t lose heart – I lost a folder full of them at the last minute, didn’t spot some until the thing was done, all sorts of typically me-ish goonery. Some mixes fitted better with other mixes, some songs I just had too many versions of, some were musically brilliant but the vocals didn’t sit right, all sorts of stuff…

Anyway. This is it. And it is ace.

That this was so sick means there’ll be a part two anyway. I just need to pump out enough new tunes for youse lot to remix. I think we can do it. Right?

Right. So, THANK YOU ALL – everyone who entered, left a voice mail, and all you who come here every time and listen to this stuff. WE RULE!!!!!!!!

    in complete agreement, i know the comment is a lil late but it means i’ve had a chance to listen to the remixtape a few times over

    always a pleasure to download some new ATD and an absolute privelege to have been a part of it too
