Splendidly Blended Podcast 33 – Favourite Albums by Female Solo Artists


Last week I asked people on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/scrimshire) to name their favourite album by a female solo artist. There were some amazing suggestions and I thought I’d pay back the contributions and people who suggested things by making you all a mix of each others’ favourites.

It’s quite a mellow affair and I didn’t really want it to be so one sided, but I hope you will still enjoy this fairly soulful mix of classic and favourite albums.

I’ve just realised I forgot to put Andreya Triana and Corinne Bailey Rae in here, but i think I got almost every other suggestion! There is much more I’d like to put in too, but it’s over 90 minutes already. So maybe another time.

Groovement Mix

Scrimshire Groovement Mix

Another mix from me, this time way more upbeat.

A long time ago Jamie at Groovement asked me to do a guest mix and things kept conspiring to keep me away from making it (in no small part, finishing my album).

But over the last few weeks I’ve been getting back to DJing again and making a few special ones (including my Slumber Sessions mix for i-D Magazine).

But here is my Groovement mix for you. It’s also accompanied by an interview, where we talk about Amiga 500/1200s and OctaMED and music education and all that sort of thing.

Splendidly Blended Podcast 32


Time for a new mix do you think? I do.

With a summer of DJing approaching I thought I’d do a bit more of a mix mix if you see what I mean. A little more upbeat, a bit heavy at times even. I hope you don’t mind. Please share and enjoy.

I’ve got music from the amazing Persian! I almost had 3 tracks in here but ended up with just one! More next time for sure. The only time you’ll hear me play any Queen thanks to the very clever Mr Will Holland, a couple of my own dubplates (be sure to check the site for downloads), something stunning from Evy Jane and an old favourite…

The Hollow - Mixtape 1

Finally it’s time for a new podcast.

Though my head has been tucked up inside making the new album for a few months now that is all over. I’ve taken some time this week to put together a nice long mix of music for you. Jazz, soul, bass, acoustic and even a little prog rock!

I will out together another mix in the next couple of weeks to compliment this one too. But for now, enjoy. And if you want to get hold of new single Home from this mix just grab it here: Home featuring Faye Houston.
