I was approached by eclectics who are a Label, DJ collective & blog based out of Bournemouth, UK.

eclectics music is on a Balearic Sound vibe, slightly left of centre.
So far they have released music with Coyote, K-effect, Field Theory, and MRBC.

When asked if would like to do a mix for them with completely free reign I jumped at the chance and this is what was born from that jumping that I did.

You can download the mix from here

These guys are nice fellas and run one hell of a record label – if you haven’t heard of them check them out and if you know them already then keep the faith

A record label established in 2004 by composer, Jim Jupp and music industry graphic designer, Julian House. It was set up originally as an outlet for their own musical experiments with the idea that each release’s packaging would display a similar design sensibility and both music and design would allude to House and Jupp’s shared imaginary landscape; a very British parallel world of library music, 60s and 70s horror movies, TV science-fiction soundtracks, vintage electronics and Radiophonics, supernatural stories and folklore.
