ABOUT TO BLOW GUEST MIX SERIES #1 : MIX DELIGHT
June has proven to be a busy month for the AboutToBlow team with our resident Dj’s recently playing in Nottingham, London, Loughbourough and Leamington. Needless to say, it has been a good month.
Not only that, being granted Access All Area's at East London's annual Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park meant the 2012 festival season has got off to a flyer. A perfect start to the summer, if we may say so.
Over the past few weeks we've been treated to a diverse array of mixes which have been coming in thick and fast from the ATB faithful. However for our first 'Guest Mix Series' we've invited some of our DJ’s to drop an exclusive mix with some great tracks to get you In the mood for a sunny summer. Hopefully the vibes can rub off from the variety we are about to bring you. Some fresh, House, Bass funky/garage and electronica all from specialists within that genre and all free to download!

All new and fresh this is definitely one of his best with old classics like ‘Father Father’ from Julio Bashmore’s first release on Futureboogie, to a new releases from Huxley and Amine & Edge. also look out for the promising prospect of Whi’lo a budding producer from across the pond, whos track ‘don’t need’ is the perfect early morning afterparty tune.
