30,000 is the new 8 by Scholastics

Inspired by the BBC Radio One Essential mix, this is a wide-ranging 2 hour dance mix designed to work in your headphones or on a dance floor.  It starts off with some weaponized pop sugar, but quickly becomes more complicated, blending together afrobeat, nu-disco, rap, post-punk, and deep house with a pulsing four on the floor beat. The whole thing is head and shoulders above any mix I’ve made, but the closing section, which starts with Williams’ cover of Love On A Real Train, contains perhaps the best and most inspired mixing I’ve done to date.
