This is the first mix of two I performed live at my sister's wedding. Some the material might seem rather explicit for a family occasion; but I was given equally explicit instructions not to play clean versions of any tracks. In addition to a "approved" selection of tracks to play I was assured that with any track I wanted to add - "if you're happy, we're happy". Dangerous words; hence 'Men Without Hats'. Nonetheless all the tracks are right up my street. They were an absolute pleasure to play to a very intelligent and dedicated crowd. :)

Having been used to mixing steady paced digitally produced electronic jams, attempting to beat-match hip-hop and trip-hop with classic rock, soul, funk and early naughties pop classics got a little bit fraught at times, but I think the overall result is pretty good. At least, that's what's offer in Part 1. Part 2 was a little different...
