  1. Thanks for a new Mix Richard - have fun in LA. PS: When are you next playing in the UK - would be cool to see you live in London :)

  2. And it's another good one!

  3. Thanks both!

    No plans for playing anywhere except my front room for the forseeable I'm afraid. If I didn't already have what currently equates to 2 day jobs I might register with an agency or put myself out there for bookings...I'd love to play in London sometime though and am especially open to direct invitations from regulars to my site who know what kind of thing to expect from me.

  4. A very odd feeling... Almost one of despondence. Quiet a reflective sounding set fella. Not sure if its me or the music.. Is there something is the 'science' of what key this is prominently in that could back this up????

    PS don't forget the Helsinki leg of the 'ROCDOLLAR WORLD TOUR' is at the top of the calendar...!!!

    Take it easy mate hope you are enjoying/enjoyed L.A. YEEEEEE HAAAAAAAAW!

  5. Haha yes Dave I believe there is. This set is largely in a minor key which can create an uneasiness for the listener. It's centered around D and A minor which are associated with melancholy and tenderness respectively. The addition of more tracks with Major key content would have lifted the overall mood to some degree.

    The selections I make are an expression of my current mood. If I'm feeling despondent then my selection will probably reflect that too. That is what is so powerful and fun about harmonic mixing - when you understand how keys can reinforce or change the way we feel they can transcend the individual tracks.

    I could have made a set in mainly major keys to cheer the listener up, but someties it is therapeutic to wallow in self pity. ;-)
