I made this vintage soul mix late last year and wasn’t completely happy with a few of the transitions so i did what i normally do and i just scrapped it. I found it again a few days ago and gave it another listen on my way to work and really dugg it. I guess as a DJ you always want to put out your best stuff and make your sound as ‘perfect’ as you can; there’s always that fine line between what you choose is acceptable for public listening and what isn’t. Sometimes i have to remind myself that this is soul music – the music wasn’t created to be perfect, it is what is is flaws and all, and that’s what gives the music it’s character.
So here it is, taken from a forgotten pile -single take, unpolished, and unforgiving.
