New DJ mix – Tooths Takeaway 005 (Root Canal Surgery mix)

The lovely Martin Peralta of Tooths asked me to do a DJ mix, and accidentally praised me for the eclectic nature of my Utility Fog playlists.
I have finally put it together (live in Traktor, after a bunch of practice runs) and I think it's pretty ace! And it's as eclectic as fuck.
It's just called Tooths Takeaway 005, but I've dubbed it the Root Canal Surgery mix.

Here's the Tooths post, and you can listen here:

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.

Here's a slightly ugly way of playing in page via Mixcloud, because Soundcloud are waaaay too assiduous about pursuing copyright:

DJ mix for Micronations – "Nanostates"

I've done a DJ mix for Andrew Tuttle aka Anonymeye's Micronations mix series.
Unfortunately his hosting provider of choice, the redoutable Soundcloud, are watching over us, and refused to accept my mix because they recognize one of the (shortest) excerpts as copyrighted. Way to go. So you can download it instead from here:
Micronations mix series: Raven – Nanostates

And here's the blurb and tracklisting. Please enjoy and if you do, please spread the word!

Peter Hollo takes you on a world tour of his current musical listening – plus a few classics that slipped in because they sound so good.
Sounds you might hear on his late Sunday night show Utility Fog on Sydney's FBi Radio, plus an as-yet-unreleased remix of his infamous FourPlay String Quartet.
We we we so excited.
