DOWNLOAD THE SOUND OF '12 MIXES - EXCITING NEW MUSIC FROM THE PAST 12 MONTHS



Even in spite of the mind-wasting garbage in the mainstream ... 2012 has actually been a fantastic year for real new music!  In March, I started The Sound Of Now on OX105FM in Oxford, which was a new experience for me. Rather than focus on strictly hip hop/ R&B/ 'urban', I started to showcase what I considered to be good new music from across different genres - soulful house, garage, bassline, D&B, as well as the underground hip-hop stuff.

It's been hugely encouraging to see so many great tunes still being made, and I'm genuinely inspired by all this stuff. Being open-minded sure pays off. So this year I'm officially retiring my year-end Bangers series to offer two The Sound Of '12 mixes, highlighting my favourite sounds from the past months of the show. Listen without prejudice for two interesting, inspiring and rewarding audio journeys. (Sadly, the automated Gestapo at Soundcloud objected to the algorithms on one of the tracks, hence Mixcloud. But below are the Mediafire links to be able to download them, meanwhile, as Mixcloud doesn't seem to have caught up with that concept yet.)

Mix 1 (Hip hop to D&B):




Mix 2 (Soulful/ Funky House):



There's so more to music than Rick Ross and Nikki Minaj!
