James Lavelle – Living in my Headphones (Part 1)
A very polished & considered mix from James to set the 2013 wheels in motion.
With tracks from Ame, Carl Craig, Four Tet, Gigamesh, Nicole Moudaber, Solumun, Booka Shade, Caribou & more, the mix is classic Lavelle with nods to his past, with the likes of La Funk Mob, and his present (Noel Gallagher & Lana Del Rey remixes), all interspersed with tunes very much of the moment.
I’ve had this on permanent repeat for the last couple of weeks, and it really feels like a mix that will stand the test of time. Inspired by the sort of sets he’s playing in clubs, it provides a soundtrack to his 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.
It promises to be quite an interesting year for Lavelle with lots of new projects on the horizon. Including an on going creative relationship with Black Dog Films. Which kicks off with him directing “Hold My Hand”.
