Exclusive Chinese New Year Mix

With Chinese New Year just around the corner I have put together a very special DJ mix of some Asian flavoured electronica for public consumption and is the same mix that was aired on Adelaide's Fresh FM on February 3.

The mix contains a couple of my to-be-released tracks on my forthcoming album out on Calligraphy Records, but also some other tracks that mean a lot to me such as a medley of Jean-Michel Jarre's songs that he performed live in China as the very first Western artist to tour that nation after their opening up to the world. While a little dated, it holds up remarkably well for a recording made in 1981 which is also the year I was born. Having lived in Shanghai for a number of years it is great to also hear some samples of Shanghainese in that recording too.

Other favourite artists in the mix include the always incredible Way Out West and a nice little number I put of a Chinese guzheng artist over a Tosca classic.

A full tracklisting and the accompanying mix can be found for your listening pleasure at Mixcloud: and below.
