Easter, RFTK mk II, and Living By Numbers
Posted on Apr 5, 2012
It's a beautiful sunny afternoon on Good Friday as I write this. Last weekend was Run For The Kids, a 14km run through the city of Melbourne that I did for the second time this year. The weather was good, and I managed to take ten minutes off my time from last year.
I'm still pretty slow, but I have to say that I do enjoy running long distances with good music, sunglasses, and a good mix to listen to. There's something about the repetitive-but-exhausting groove you can get into when you find your pace. Flow, I guess you could call it. It's a fun place to spend ninety minutes!
Today is a bike ride day, I think. I've just been sent a few mixes by my friend Dan in Copenhagen, who has been churning out some great work with his new Traktor setup, and now that they're loaded onto my ipod I'll hit the trails and see if I can roll the afternoon away.
If you like the music that I play, you will likely enjoy my new mix, Living By Numbers.
The photo I used for the artwork was taken on the same trail I'm about to go riding on now, in fact - the Eastlink trail that runs through Melbourne's eastern suburbs.The mix is just under three hours long, and the first hour of the mix featured as the guest mix for Wes Straub's 709Sessions radio show in February, broadcast globally in all sorts of interesting places. As a mix, it's made up of many of the songs that have made an impression on me over the past year, weaved into a narrative and structure that fits with the frame of mind I've been in these past few months.
