James Lavelle has posted a new mix titled 'A Night's Interlude'.
Born into a British club scene which straddled everything from Rare Groove to hip hop, Acid House to reggae James Lavelle is a born crate digger. Perhaps best known for his UNKLE association, the producer is continuing to enjoy his time behind the decks.
Embracing new styles and leafing through the archives, the Mo'Wax founder is continually in demand. Recently deciding to launch a new mix series, James Lavelle posted the first instalment online last night.
Living In Your Headphones Pt.1 'A Night's Interlude' is typically wide ranging, with James Lavelle penning an introductory note: "Starting the new year I thought it would be good to finally drop a new DJ mix as its been a while. Whilst the band is taking a break I have been getting back to basics and starting to DJ again and work on some more electronic tracks and remixes. Living In My Headphones is the new title of a series I will continue for the foreseeable future with this being the first. As it's been a while since I have done a mix I wanted to provide a soundtrack to my DJing both past and present with numerous exclusives, edits and remixes, some tracks from past mixes in new forms, classics and new brand new music. Being 2 and a half hours it is also very reflective of a live club DJ set, not split into different parts but as one continuous set and how I like to play out. I hope you can enjoy it both subtly as a soundtrack to your day or night, in headphones or cranked up as if you were right there with me in a club."
