Home – a journey by DJ mix

Angela & I are becoming first home owners this week, and in celebration and amongst the madness of moving (boxes everywhere, last-minute delays, culling of vinyl and even *gasp* CDs), I've compiled a special DJ mix for the occasion.

I love making radio and I love creativeness, so DJ mixes are a natural for me. The last one I did was freeform in terms of theme, and I tried to give it a great flow despite great diversity.

There's certainly a lot of diversity here too. I've taken the theme of Home literally — it's 20(ish) tracks, every one of which has the word "Home" in its title. Other than starting with "Leaving Home" and ending with "Coming Home to the Sun", the flow is purely music-driven. I've allowed a lot of the songs to go pretty long, because it's meant to be a bit of a journey and it's entirely self-indulgent. Full tracklisting below.
