EDIT: 

From September 2006! The first ATD mixtape/LP, wherein I produced and self-recorded in my very own gaff an album plus worth of songs on a theme (Britpop samples) and called it a mixtape. I’d just started leraning a bout compression, the self mastering is shocking, I hadn’t learned to EQ vocals yet, but still the people loved it. There’s some genuinely ACE stuff on here, some wonderful guest turns from my extended “Don Squad” family and I am, in retrospect, very proud of it.

ATD, Nu Olympia, 12/06/12

PS – Because I keep getting asked, the sleeve references the famous Patsy Kensit/Liam Gallagher “Cool Britania” Vanity Fair cover.

 

 

Original text:

OK, this is a fucking LP, first. Everything on here is by me, and my people, made especially for this tape, apart from three joints which appeared on previous ATDs and fit the theme.

I’ll post a list of the sampled artists in a few days, but right now, you can have fun guessing. If you don’t know anything about 90s indie, ask Jeres. WORD!

    It’s a reference to Liam Ghallagher and his then wife Patsy Kensit’s iconic, notorious and woeful “London Swings Again” cover for Vanity Fair magazine. The idea is that I am “in bed with Britpop”. Therefore it works on many levels and is genius.

    This is my favourite mixtape of yours, and after losing my hard drive I was looking forward to re-listening to it. No joy, sadly, and I notice that the links to at least your first few mixes aren’t working either. Any poss of making like a torrent of them all?
