Fine mix on a downbeat folksy vibe from King Creosote at OLO Radio LA Foghorns. Strong Beta Band influence here I reckon, featuring four tracks from ex-member Lone Pidgeon (who is also apparently KC's brother I just found out on Wikipedia)
Sonic Sunset out of Chicago's mixes use sounds from all over the electronic music spectrum. Check their latest, Lighter Path which ends in half an hour of achingly perfect techno.
A great album of Kerouac readings at Pathway To Unknown Worlds, that's been throwing up all kinds of nice treats on the shuffle through my lovely new Sennheisers. Really realising that reading aloud adds another dimension to Kerouac's amazingly vibrant work. Some of the best readers include Michael Stipe, John Cale and Eric Andersen. Edit - this blog is now 'open to invited readers only'. If anyone reading knows how to get me invited to this blog please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the 5th or 6th time this has happened and I'm losing a lot of good links here!!!
And RA on the case with a fine, fresh mix from Italian progressive house artist Donato Dozzy.

Strange weather here in V recently but we all know the serious heat's coming. So here's a little mix to get y'all listo!
Lots of tracks didn't make the final 80 min cut on this one so vol2 soon come!
Note on the first track. Incomplete version from Soulseek's fickleness but had to include it. My favourite breakbeat, always makes me feel happy since I first heard it on a crackly pirate B-boy set. Might still have that tape somewhere...
