About this selection: “Last year I began looking at music in a different way and took it upon myself to re-organize my music collection. Instead of looking at things in terms of genres, I decided to classify my music by ‘feelings’. One such category was labelled HIGHLY EMOTIVE and this is where I keep tracks that I believe are spiritual in nature – deep, soul clutching House Music that is warm, nostalgic, and really just takes you home. This mix is a selection of some special cuts from that list – some old, some new but always deep.”

About the Warm Up Series

There is something deeply special, and perhaps sometimes overlooked, about the magic of anticipation in dance music. Perhaps it’s a solo trip through your most treasured playlists in the days before your favourite party, or an intimate gathering of loved ones before heading out into the unknown of the nighttime. For some it might even be attending an event early to catch those often under-appreciated opening slots.

However you choose to warm up before the peak-time, it remains a unique opportunity for sonic journey and adventure. Our Warm Up Series is dedicated to just that.
