Mix For Today

Strategy and Luke Vex from Invasion radio,on NSB, have put together this sweet promo mix.

Click for the full size image, so you can see the tracklisting

As the title might suggest, behold - a new mix from me and luke. if you've heard our radio show or one of our mixes before, you might have noticed that we aren't always 100% faithful to that bittersweet mistress they call breakbeat - so if you're looking for the last three week's breaks releases mixed together backwards, then you're probably in the wrong place. instead, you are likely to hear: dubstep, techno, electronica, hip hop, minimal, electro, garage and maybe even some yodelling - all re-edited, sliced up and put back together again with tiny digital scissors.

If you DOWNLOAD the zip file you get the mix plus the artwork. Skillz.
