15:13 - August breaks mess around

8/11/2022
Finally!!! After my daughter took over my studio (did she really need her own bedroom), I set up a little corner of the living room to have my Pioneer controller hooked up and ready to play. It was great to have a little mess around and I recorded a bit of a breaks mix. These are tracks which I have downloaded recently and there does appear to have a lot of OnDaMike in there. Also the first track is a little exclusive which someone made for me... Anyway, enjoy. Show us some love on...

And I thought I would take it back to a format of how I used to do my shows back when I was broadcasting live on Fire Radio, with a slight difference (no live mixing). So first half, all 130 four four electro and breaks, and then second half we take it up to 175 for 30 mins of drum & bass. Track list to come but enjoy... Show us some love on Patreon.

15:11 - Chill & Breaks Mix

7/1/2022
A little out of my comfort zone I was asked to play a chill out set at Bay Bar in Ibiza. The music policy was house music, 'house music Mike, no chilled dubstep or liquid drum & bass, house music Mike!!'. He didn't say I couldn't play breaks so... This is my "Chill & Breaks" mix or "Bass & Chill" mix, not sure which one is better. Originally I was going to play this set at Bar Bay on the seafront of San Antonio however due to various reasons the venue wasn't ready to open. Which was a real...

6/17/2022
During the "platty joobs" weekend the family, my brother and best mate went to the King Of The Beats all day-er at the Fox & Firkin. It was essentially a large pub garden with a bit of a rave corner. We took our 9 month old, as you know, she needs to get into breakbeat early and it was a lot of fun. This mix is very much inspired by the breakbeat classics played that day. Big ups Krafty Kuts, Freestylers and Plump DJs (King Of The Beats) for a wicked set, Renie Pilgrem, Deekline, Atomic...

OK, it's been a moment, sorry about that. Long story short, my mental health went sideways which meant recording was really tricky. I made the actual show about a month ago, but doing the vocals, well that's a story for another time.

15:04 - Mix Month: Black Sun Empire guest mix from 2012

1/28/2022
We go into the Bass & Breaks archive and pull out something from 2012, this mix is awesome and was so proud to get this exclusive guest mix. Black Sun Empire meant a lot to me when I was buying vinyl, I loved drum & bass but I couldn't find a sound I was passionate about until I heard these guys. They had a label called BSE Recordings (the precursor to Blackout Music NL) and I'm sure I have most of that back catalog on wax. This guest mix was around when they were releasing their 'From The...
