This mixtape was the first of the mixtape collection. I made many mixtapes before on vinyl onto cassette however this was my first mixtape with me using scratchlive for two years. I didn’t plan for this to be a print onbody mix and for it to be the beginning of a popular collection. There was a girl in my office called Kelly and she did the samples of my DJ SR name.

I actually made this mix on New Years Day 2009 in the morning after having a big row with my girlfriend at the time – happened to be over New Year’s Eve London nightclub the night before. I had to take my mind off our row so I made a mixtape for the old skool R&B tracks that are most popular in London with the connoisseurs.

This R&B is what I and many people in their 30-40’s was the type of R&B we listened to as teenagers and kids before we started going out to London bars and nightclubs. It is not so commercial, I didn’t play any of these type of songs at the night before i.e the New Year’s Eve party at Hard Rock cafe and that’s why I made the mix to hear something different to what I played the night before.
