So when I first started buying records to listen to at home on my Dad's single hi-fi turntable back in 1999 there was one producer who's records I used to HUNT DOWN. And I mean hunt. Second hand shops, shady ebay scam artist sellers, allsorts. This man was Todd Edwards. So many amazing memories listening to his music when I was younger, and a huge number of Grime artists in their mid to late twenties will tell you the same!
So on the first week of sunshine I put together this full on Todd Edwards mix. All vinyl and a pair of Technics 1210s, with authentic vinyl crackle and the occasional quiet press record. I even left in a needle jump when I originally uploaded it, but my OCD kicked in and I had to edit that shit out! But still, the vinyl crackle remains there so you can get that real old school vibe! I had almost forgotten how hard it was to keep two Todd Edwards records in time once you bring the mix in. DJs will know about those drum kits blending into one disorientating blur!
Just go to: http://www.filefront.com/16557123/Logan-Sama-presents---Keepin-it-Todd-Edwards-Mastered-Final-Mix.mp3/ and download 'Logan Sama presents: Keepin it Todd Edwards'
Trust me this is one for the summer days, taking it back to before people were playing soulful and funky house in their cars. 82 minutes, 35 tracks.... hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed mixing it!
