Anything Goes & Everything Flows DJ mix 1

Welcome to what might become a semi-regular feature in the blog. A series of 60-minute playlists/mixes trying to create the vibe I would get from entering The Variety / McChuills in Glasgow on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night, where DJ's would work their magic to get the crowd in the mood for moving on to a club, or in my case, often opting to just stay in the bar.

In these magical bars that I frequently visited through my 20's, the DJ's would spin incredibly cool tunes, many that I had never heard before, causing me to go up and ask the DJ what they were playing. McChuills and The Variety were places where the music policy was very much anything goes and everything flows.

I've tried to create mixes that are 60-minutes in length with real thought behind the song selection and order. For this one, search for Anything Goes & Everything Flows DJ mix 1 on Spotify or CLICK HERE

This mix is very soul and funk focused, throwing in a cool cover, splicing in Sleaford Mods and some of you might recognise a song that Fatboy Slim would sample with great success. The SAULT song continues to blow me away.
