Fake Blood – Essential Mix [2009] Mixtape

Fake Blood’s Essential Mix was one of those mixtapes that defined a moment in club culture. A moment when Electro, Fidget, & Blog House ruled the dance floors. A moment when we bagged him before most other parties to perform at Blah Blah Blah. For those of you who were there / remember. CRAZY! Crowd surfing, Bra’s being thrown, 6 encores – legendary…

In his own words….

Last Friday, the 13th March, my ESSENTIAL MIX was broadcast on BBC Radio 1.

The theme was this: Rather than just bang it out for 2 hours (yawn) I thought I would split it into 2 distinct halves, and show a wider range of music I love. Plus it makes it more interesting to put together, and to listen to hopefully:

The 1st hour represents THE CLUB, and is the kind of stuff I am playing out. A bit heavier for that apex of the night.
But the 2nd hour is THE AFTER PARTY, and is me playing other stuff I love, but goes a bit deeper, stripped back, melodic and unusual. Music to watch the night turn into morning.

It’ll definitely throw a few people, but that was kind of the intention.
