“When I sat down to do this mix it was December and at the end of very challenging year. Moving house/studio seemed to take up the whole year and proved to be quite an unsettling time.

I chose records that evening based on how I was feeling that night but with an overall reflective feeling of the year gone by, along with the anticipation of getting into the new place and the year ahead. Other than choosing the records to be played that night, it was not planned before hand and was very spontaneous.

The only preconceived idea I had before embarking on this mix was to include a ‘hidden’ track at the end after a long period of atmosphere. It’s an unreleased LOTI track pointing towards the future.”
