Dunfyboy's Something A Little Different Mix

Download from MediaFire.

This mix came about after I was messing about with some old indie stuff (Stone Roses, The Soup Dragons, Primal Scream, Beats International) and grew from there.

It kind of goes all over the place but I quite like that. I'm particularly happy getting Magik Roundabout's "Everlasting Day" into a mix as it was a real favourite of mine back in the day, a great feel-good summer tune. Its cover is the basis for the artwork for this mix. I'm also pleased getting Jimi into a mix and I really like the way "Son Of A Preacher Man" mixes into "For What It's Worth". The "Springfield Effect", I guess you could call it. Simple things please simple minds.

Apologies for the obvious mixes ("He Got Game" into "For What It's Worth", 2 versions of "No Woman, No Cry") but at least I managed to avoid "Hits From The Bong" after "Son Of A Preacher Man".

You might recognise "Heartbeats" by José González from the Sony Bravia advert with the bouncing balls. It's mixed into 2 Deep's "Life Party". It was used in a Reebok advert in 1991/92. It's the one with a white line across the screen. It gets hurdled over, then it's a lane marker in a sprint, then it's the bar for the high jump, then it's the finishing tape in a race or something like that. I haven't explained it very well (and no one I know remembers it) but if you saw it all those years ago you would know what I'm on about.

Anyway, download, sit back and enjoy.
