This week we have Ireland’s party starter on the mixtape. You’ve probably seen him on every festival line-up in the country, but we’ve managed to steal some time from his busy touring schedule. We asked George more about the mix & what he’s been up to outside of gigs…
I’ve been keeping my head down lately and working on as much music as possible. I’m really lucky to have my next couple of releases locked in on Armada Music and Boston Bun’s Circa ’99. Other than that, I’ve been playing gigs and getting myself ready for festival season!
I recorded the mix in my new home studio on a set of CDJ’s and Technic 1210’s. We’ve only just moved in, so it was really nice to christen the place with this mix.
To be honest, there wasn’t really much of a concept or idea behind the mix. I just wanted to put together something that really reflected what it’s like coming to one of my DJ sets. Packed with 90’s driven house bangers and splashes of funk and soul, I think this mix definitely highlights what I try to bring to each show I play.
And what’s up next?
Thankfully I have a very busy summer. I’ll be playing at a ton of festivals such as Otherside, Indiependence, Electric Picnic, as well as a few others that I can’t mention just yet. I’m also really excited to be heading back over to Canada to play a string of shows for Jika Jika and Groove In The Wild.
