This mix has been sitting on a shelf all month. Recorded on the 4th April but only being released on the 24th!
I had intended to do another mix in April which I thought would be the official podcast, but for one reason or another (Easter being one of them!) it hasn't happened.
This mix has some beautiful disco flavours, some underground UK vibes and some pretty chunky deep sounds all building on each other.
Have to call out Heat Alliance, I actually came across them in December and have been sitting on four little crackers that I picked up by them. They are all in this mix and sound great.
Also great to be able to play some fresh Crackazat releases. One of my favourite producers, so talented.
I launched a sister Mixcloud page for my other mixes on a deeper vibe - Argie Bargy Cartel which is myself along with long time Sydney househead Karl Prinzen of K-Life. We mix back to back three tracks each live on House Nation Live on alternating Mondays to the Pressure show which remains in its usual Thursday slot.
Thanks to everyone that's supported the March podcast. Having been away for three months I didn't know whether everyone would have moved on presuming I'd stopped!
Booking flights for Suncebeat and Vocal Booth Weekender this week, making it feel more real. Hope to meet as many of you there as possible. Gonna be a great Summer.

After three months away it's great to be back on Pressure. This is the come back show and I must admit I was a little rusty round the edges, but that's OK we're all friends .
I hadn't even bought any new music during my time away, so when it came time to do the show it was the same old supermarket sweep around the aisles of Traxsource. Unfortunately I ran out of time before I could fill the trolley so we don't have a mix of completely new music but the majority of it is.
Some of the highlights on this mix include the excellent Crackazat remixes and the highly contagious Qubiko.
I should be back every fortnight now, same time same place although the upcoming clock changes mean I'll be back the good old lunchtime UK slot.
Don't forget to also check the fortnightly Argy Bargie show on House Nation Live available through Facebook. It's on alternating Mondays to the Pressure show, same time slot though.

It's taken a while but I've finally managed to get my hands on the recording of my Pressure Cooker set from Andy Wards amazing Vocal Booth Weekender in Spain last September.
An amazing week with some seriously awesome househeads whose dedication is to be admired.
The set was on a Saturday afternoon and I was up against Aroop Roy which was a shame as I really wanted to hear his set
The set was put together on the flight from Sydney to Barcelona which was a whopping 23 hours. I've become very used to playing two hour sets which allow you to build nicely and take in all different sub genres at a leisurely pace.
This was a one hour set and in front of my peers who I respect and admire - so the pressure was on.
I really wanted to encapsulate my sound over the years which meant cramming in a whole range of styles - I ended up managing to pack in 18 tracks which meant I was busy throughout the mix, but the result is so worth it.
This is one of my favourite mixes, I am really proud of the outcome and so excited to be able to share it with you all.
I'll be doing it all over again this year in Spain so for those of you in Europe that have always wanted to hear me live, grab a ticket and head to Vocal Booth Weekender - we can chill and grab a Liquor 43!
I would really love your feedback on this one as so much effort went into making it happen - travelling across the world, hours of crate digging and a sweaty hardworking set!

YES we are finally back after being away for three months. It's probably the longest I've been away from music during my adult years but a combination of being ill and moving home proved too much.
This is a one man show this week with my partner in crime Karl Prinzen unavailable.
I hadn't even gotten round to doing a decent shop for tunes, so I already knew it wouldn't be an all new show for the return.
That said there are some great new tracks in here - as usual purchased ten minutes before the show is supposed to start.
It was a drama just getting on air - Facebook have put me on a beta version with a new capability called Creative Studio so I couldn't work out how to get on air!! Once that was sorted I then realised that whilst we'd been away Xander the station owner had changed all of the media - so I had to change all of the banners on the screens. As a result the show started an hour late.
I am so grateful for all the people that jumped on to watch and listen just minutes into the show, it was great to see given how long we have been away.
Facebook did their usual BS and killed the stream after an hour and then to rub salt complained about the last song I played on the mix which again is crap as it's underground garage from 2012!
We'll be back every other Monday from the 11th March on House Nation Live and I'll be back on Pressure Radio again every other Thursday from 21st March - I hope you can join me on one or both.

First up - wishing you all a happy new year.
Nice to be able to release something on the first day of a new year. This is a recording of a live set I did back in November for a local classics night here in Sydney called Re-Loaded 90's Classics.
Being the 90's everything was on vinyl. I did the first two and a half hours, followed by a back to back session to finish off. Most DJs aspire to getting the main slot at a gig, but I prefer to play earlier and control the transitions and intensity build up of the night. Changing the feel of the room, the mood of the crowd. Getting people up and moving for the first time. Setting the expectation for the rest of the night.
You can hear that very clearly in this set. The first 45 mins is pretty chilled. The kind of stuff we used to hear in bars, or maybe the more soulful nights. The first few tracks are actually dominated by the Hamburg DJs Mousse T and Boris Dlugosh.
If you listen to just the first and last 30 minutes you would swear they are from different nights, but as the mix progresses it just keeps building and it all makes sense.
There are one or two fat finger moments, but it isn't often I play vinyl anymore. Hopefully it doesn't spoil your enjoyment as you take a trip back down memory lane to when house tracks really stood out.
Thanks to everyone that came on the night - I got a lot of energy from your reaction to the tunes. it was definitely a joint effort
Huge thanks to Marcus Stubbs for giving me the opportunity to play.

It's been a while since the last release, but I have moved house and it's taken a while to get the music room up and running again. I don't want to go too far between releases so I am going to release a mix from last year recorded on Pressure Radio. It was a celebration of the month of December and featured music I acquired during a December - any year. I think we go back to 2006, so over 11 year span.
This mix is the very definition of transition and flow. You will clearly hear a smooth flow through several sub genres, each building on the other until the eventual come down. This mix was done on the fly and has been sat in my Munted collection all year, but the more I listen to it the more I realise how much it needs to be shared so you can all enjoy as I do.
As the year draws to a close I'd like to thank everyone who continues to support by listening and downloading and especially to those that share and introduce others to the c2eMusic family and sound.
Whatever you get up to have a great Christmas and New Year and expect to see a lot more of me in 2019.
Peace & Love to you all

Enjoy, Merry Christmas & a happy and propserous New Year.
Another rare occasion when the new podcast comes out at the start of the month. I have always tried to ensure every track on every podcast is unique, only played once. I used to obsess about that, but these days I'm chillin' a little and accepting that it's OK for tunes to appear a couples of times in succession. For that reason last week's Pressure show has become the November Podcast. Half the tracks are brand new -purchased just minutes before the show. The rest is a fusion of the previous podcast with just one exception right at the end. Where last months podcast had a chunkier feel, this one is a couple of clicks down from that. A more rounded soulful, deep sound. Podomatic just reached out with a discount for plans, which makes the Broadcaster Pro doable. So I will upgrade to the top plan and then make every mix downloadable. Over 220 of them!! You may need to go and buy a new drive to store them on! I'll release them in batches so no one is overwhelmed. Back in the real world for those of you in Sydney I'll be playing vinyl classics next Saturday (10th Nov) at the Burdiken for RE_LOADED1990's - HOUSE & CLUB CLASSICS VOL 6. Then we are back for another Underground Jack at Goodbar on November 30th. Look out for more details on that one.Tracklisting: 1: Wayne Williams - No Mountain (Main with Intro) 2: Rogiers - Heart's A Mess (Opolopo Remix) 3: AMFlow, Koffee - Raw Uncut (Louie Vega Remix Instrumental) 4: Giovanni Damico - Even The Stones 5: Norty Cotto, Michelle Rivera - Nights (Feel Like Getting Down) (Norty Cotto O C D Club Mix) 6: Sven Kerkhoff - Seduction (Joey Chicago's Bitched Remix) 7: Alex Agore - Breakpoint 8: Angelo Ferreri, Moon Rocket - Inner City Blues 9: Re-Tide - Dirty Love 10: Jasper Street Co. - My Soul Is A Witness (Teddy Douglas & DJ Spen Vocal Mix) 11: Roog, Dennis Quin, Berget Lewis - Igohart (VIP Mix) 12: Low Steppa, Dennis Quin - Afters Groove 13: Random Soul - Together (Orig Instrumental) 14: Cpen, Bluey Robinson - I'm Searching (Club Mix) 15: Mad Funk - J B 16: Re-Tide, Keyo - The Revolution Will Be Live (Mattei & Omich Club Mix) 17: Roog - Survival 2K18 18: Stefano Ranieri, Scorzayzee - Old School 19: Jovonn - Pianos Of Gold (Ian Pooley Mix) 20: Lone - Crush Mood 21: TR-MEET - Dancefloor 22: Diepuis, Saxy Mr S - For Ur Dub 23: Marc - Coltrane (Atjazz Mix) 24: Aroop Roy - Talkin' About (Brisa Remix) Enjoy!
I'm really feeling this months mix. As per usual tracks were found and purchased same day as the show. Downloaded 15 minutes before the show, and heard through for the first time during the show. That can always go two ways, but I'm glad to say this one couldn't have gone any better.
The opening track is probably my favourite. It's been a while since I bought any Atjazz having supported heavily over the years. It was impossible to resist his mix of "Coltrane" though and it's one of those where the more you hear it the more you feel it.
There are 18 new tracks and I went through them like sand through your fingers. All gone in just 85 minutes!! The mix has a grown up deep flow to it with some nice transitions along the way. The last 35 minutes required some on the fly digital crate digging trying not to change the flow too much.
In other news I'm really proud to announce that I am one of D3EP Radio's newest DJs. Looking to play on Thursday's monthly from 11am-1pm UK time. Keep your eyes peeled for the launch date. I will be using it as a chance to go deeper and chunkier than my typical Pressure set, allowing me to play the more soulful stuff on Pressure Radio as I feel I've slipped to the deep end of the Pressure spectrum. So proud to get to play on the station of someone I've supported and been a HUGE fan of since 93!! Thanks Grant for giving me the opportunity.
I made my first Traxsource chart yesterday too. It's a top 10 and they all feature in this mix (you lucky sausages).
This is an easy way for you to support the artists and buy their work.
Shouts going out to all those in Amsterdam for ADE. Have a boogie for the rest of us

This September mix is from the last Pressure Radio show before I headed over to Spain to join the Pressure and Vocal Booth family in the sun.
It's one of the deepest mixes I've done in a while, really not a lot of soulful or vocal tracks in here. It does flow well, but doesn't have as broad a sound as usual. The latter half features some of the tracks I'll be selecting from for my set in the Pressure Cooker on the Saturday. Big thank you to those of you at VBW that came
along for a boogie to what was a very rare appearance behind the decks over in Europe.
The set was broadcast live from the Pressure Cooker via Pressure Radio. All off the Pressure Cooker sets were streamed live and will soon be available as podcasts on the VBW website and app.
It was an incredible week at VBW. Andy Ward and the team do an amazing job to create a very unique week long party. If you ever get the chance I thoroughly recommend. Met so many cool people that will be friends for a long time.
Also had the re-launch night for Underground Jack at Goodbar in Sydney on the day I got back from Spain. All DJs were on point (even me and it was great to see that we didn't know any of the crowd for the last hour. All a younger crowd, that really got into it. There's hope yet!
Before anyone writes in - I know the accapella drop on the last track is a dogs breakfast. I had planned to fix up and will do at some point, but for now you can enjoy the other 1hr 55mins of music.

It's been a long time since we had a two volume release for a monthly podcast however here we are. This one was recorded on Pressure Radio on 16th August.
There are a good number of tracks from the Sunce Sessions mix, however the first part contains a load of quality new stuff which gives the mix a very different feel at the start.
Kudos again to Conrad Bool who gave me heads up on a couple of little beauties - 'Alva - The Wall' and 'Black Loops - French Affair' and the amazing 'Orange Tree Edits'. Unfortunately there was a blip in the recording which has cut a small chunk of Orange Tree Edits out . We'll get em next time!
Would be interested to know which of the two August mixes you prefer the most - please leave a comment to let me know.
I'm off to Vocal Booth Weekender in September this year, it will be my first time and I'm so excited to get to meet the other Pressure Radio DJs. Big thanks to Andy Ward for allowing me to play at such short notice. Fo those of you going I'll be playing in the Pressure Cooker on Saturday afternoon. If you've been listening to c2eMusic over the years and you're at VBW please come say hi, I'd love to finally meet you guys after all this time.
Finally it gives me great pleasure to announce that Underground Jack is back. Following a year off trying to secure the right venue we've come up trumps with Goodbar on Oxford St - it's even outside the lockout zone! First night is September 21st, the day I get back from VBW. I'll be joined by founder DJ Nycks and my HouseNation.live partner in crime Sydney's very own Karl Prinzen. We are going to put the Void 1 sound system to good use to bring you a sound unlike anything else you'll hear in Sydney. Looking to make this a bi-monthly event, as we aren't getting any younger. Hope you can come down to support the opening night.
