Anything Goes & Everything Flows DJ Mix 14

Patti Jo - Make Me Believe In You

Welcome to my 14th 60-minute DJ mix under the title of Anything Goes & Everything Flows. 

This series has quickly become my most viewed blogs with most of the 13 to date being viewed 1,500 + times, with quite a few well over 2,000. So thanks if you read the blog and enjoy the mixes/playlists.

My idea was to create a monthly 60-minute playlist/mix to try and create the vibe I would get from entering The Variety / McChuills in Glasgow on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. 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. Search for Everything Flows DJ Mix 14 on Spotify or CLICK HERE

This month has a soul and funk flavour. There are dirty grooves, but also some really euphoric moments, notably Thelma Houston tearing through I've Got The Music In Me and Tom Moulton getting that little extra through his mix of one of my all-time favourite songs - Don't Leave Me This Way. Moulton also really works on the groove on Al Green's classic Let's Stay Together, while Otis Clay's The Only Way Is Up will receive it's own blog in the near future!

Dig in and enjoy. This is probably my favourite 60-minute mix so far.
