This months mix is a guest mix on someone else's show!
I hosted the Underground Jack show last Saturday on D3EP Radio Network.
I wasn't able to play on Pressure the previous week, so this kinda made up for it.
With 30 minutes to go before the show I decided to go with "Re-Tide" as a theme. I grabbed all of their tracks and went for it. The result is an intense energy packed hour long mix.
The second hour I'm joined by another Sydney resident Mr Adrian Benedek from Fallen Disco. He blends a nice disco mix on the slightly more commercial side, sliding into Jackin' sounds towards the end. Altogether it makes for 2hrs of funky disco grooves.
For those of you that can't get enough ( - check out the You-Tube video of last weeks Argie Bargy Cartel Show streamed live on House Nation Live.

Adrian Benedek - Fallen Disco Mix for UDJ #31
For the first time in a long time we have two releases in the same month! The last mix was a crate digging session. This time it's the fresh new sounds of 2020, with a dash of late 2019. This is actually attempt two for this mix. The first one was wrecked by my controller playing up and dropping the BPM on the right deck down to 121. I've been listening to the recording from that show for the last couple of weeks and decided it needed doing again without Mr Denon getting in the way. This version isn't exactly the same, you always find ways to improve.
A big shout has to go out to Sondrio and Mo' Funk, who I heard play B2B at S.A.S.H By Day in January warming up for Black Loops. The set blew my mind, crazy track selection and flow. I've never shazzamed so much in my life and luckily it actually worked this time!
There are a few of the tracks they played in this set including the awesome Projections by Henry Wu that almost had me in tears!
Things are actually warming up on the gig side here in Sydney:
- 23rd Feb - Anti Monday Club - Kings Cross Hotel (4-5pm)
- 7th March - Remedy - Chin-A-Lings (10:30+)
- 3rd April - Underground Jack - Oxford Underground (10-11:30)
Would be great to see those of you based in Sydney.

These are the most fun mixes to makes and hopefully you enjoy them too. No plan, just casting my net across the whole digital collection and seeing where we go.
It resulted some real gems from the past being unearthed. Nothing really obscure, just those tracks you used to listen to all the time maybe 15, 20 years ago. I was really proud I managed to double the number of listeners during the show, it's great when your show is like a sticky ball of honey. People come in and can't leave
This is definitely a sing along mix with a soulful heart. A good mix of producers from both sides of the pond.
With a bit of luck this is the first of two mixes this month with the second being the usual mix of new tracks.
This is the one you'll probably come back to again and again, especially if you listen to a lot of my mixes.

Firstly Happy New Year everyone. Hope this is a great year for you all and you managed to spend some quality time away from work with loved ones over the holidays.
2019 was a pretty barren year for mixes for me so I am very happy to be able to put out a mix to kick off the new decade and without it being a last minute rush.
That said it was a last minute rush starting the radio show that the recording comes from. 40 minutes to get home from the city, get changed, grab food, download new music, power up the systems and connect to the radio! But I managed it
As a result I wasn't expecting a podcastable show, ,especially as I had only bought nine new tracks. However I was pleasantly surprised as the mix unfolded. The more I hear it, the more I like it - so here we are.

It's been a long time since I released a mix of new music so I was pleased with the outcome of last Thursdays show.
As always, no idea what I would play or in what order. That's often what stops me releasing a mix as it doesn't always flow right, or some of the mixes don't work.
Thankfully this time things worked out well. It's a mix with three distinct sections. Firstly we have the deep mellow sounds to get us warmed up, before getting into a more traditional soulful section. That transitions into something a little thicker. Just as you start to wonder just how tough we are gonna go, up pops Sandy Rivera to commence our decent.
Christmas parties and kids holidays will interfere with December's shows but we will see if we can get something out there in time for Xmas.

Been away far too long. Lot's of travel kept me away from the decks for a number of months now which isn't ideal, but I am back now.
This release is from the live Pressure Radio show on the 17th October. It was my first show in a few week too and I fancied a challenge so I went all in on a vinyl show - on the fly of course
It starts off squarely with a UK Garage sound of the mid 90's and for a while it looks like this will be another UK Garage mix, but I figured it would be more fun to mix it up.
The second half of the mix is a real bag of tunes from across the years from the beautiful Romanthony's Ministry of Love to Sandy Rivera's Changes.
I've yet to buy new music so I'm hoping there is a ton of stuff for me to get my teeth into.
In the meantime get your chops around this one and thank you for your patience, this is one of the longest breaks I've had since first learning to spin way back when.

Last Pressure show before I head off to Europe for Suncebeat in Croatia. There was no new music this week, I just didn't have time to find enough.
The mix itself is very deep for me. I think I consciously wanted to have it this deep without knowing which tracks would be right.
The second half of the mix ended up being a homage to Germany's Lovebirds. What was meant to be the odd one or two ended up being the remainder of the show.
That's a good thing, a very good thing because his style and sound have been top class for most of the last ten years.
I'm sure I've said it before but if you see me at Sunce come and say "hi". I don't bite and would love to meet the people that listen and support. For those of you on the boat parties you will be able to find me up at the aft of the boat for the Conniousseurs, Diridim, Zanziboat, Basement Boys, Kaoz and Farewell parties.
So here we are then the third and final piece of the marathon session with Gary Ward. Bit of context required for this last session.
Firstly - we'd been playing for four hours already and it was by now 1am on a school night.
Secondly - Gary had been in the pub through the afternoon and turned up with a six pack of beer. Problem was I don't drink beer, so they were all Gary's. As you can imagine by 1am there weren't any beers left! Not to feel left behind - I mean it's important we are playing from the same head space. I made every effort to finish off the bottle of Mr Black that was in my cupboard.
So we weren't Drunk, but there was a bit of looseness.
You can hear it make an appearance more often in this last session. but don't let that put you off, we were playing one track each and had been for an hour. That gave us time to crate dig some huge tracks. We continued with the theme and moved from MAW to Kerri Chandler and finally Sandy Rivera.
The tanks were absolutely drained by the end of the set. But we had a mental time and are looking to do it all again.
Again tracklisting to come over time.
Hopefully you've all had chance to sample Pt One of the marathon set with Gary Ward recorded live on Pressure Radio.

For everyone else that is up to date with their homework, here is your next assignment. Please turn to hours three and four and listening diligently, but have fun and feel free to leave your seat ad dance.
This is the section that transitions into a little MAW session via a Joey Negro doorway.
This is part one of a three part set. It's an epic six hours in total! It was recorded live on Pressure Radio on 28th June from 9pm to 3am Sydney time.
It also features a special guest that I've been trying to get on the show since he moved to Sydney three years. I am talking about Brum's finest Gary Ward. Those of you that party in the Midlands may remember "Days Like This", "Über Nights" and more recently "Body People". All names synonymous with Gary.
This was the first time we had played together and I was curious to see how our styles would work together. As you will see the answer is very nicely indeed thank you. The people in the chatroom kept commenting on how well we played together which was great to hear.
I kicked the show off playing for the first 30 minutes and started with new tracks purchased that day. That said the opener is a HUGE classic that I only got my hands on that day!! Gary took over at the half hour mark and upped the tempo a little but the vibe was still flowing through. We swapped back again just past halfway through this pt1 mix where I played a more uptempo set to continue the energy Gary had created. The last half an hour Gary changes direction and we here a nice disco infused vibe.
Look out for parts two and three which include a monster MAW throw down.
Tracklisting to come - six hours is a lot to go through!!
