Throwback – my cure for homesickness

I’ve been in Costa Rica for a  couple of weeks now, and I must admit – I’ve started to get a little home sick. The two things I really miss from back home are the food and the music. Costa Ricans aren’t big on soul music, and I’ve been jonesing to hear a little Marvin Gaye or a drop of Betty White. So, in an effort to feel a little more at home, I merged two of my favourite types of music – soul and house. The set is a throwback to some of my favourite old school tunes. While this may not be the most technically slick set I’ve ever put down (I have a small apartment and can’t make too much noise, so the mix is a little wobbly) it certainly did make me feel better, even if it does have a few warts.

I’ll try and find somewhere I can make a bit more noise so that I can put together something a little tidier soon. Have fun listening.
