Different Strokes – Show 4 – Part 1 – Maricopa


This months guest mix comes from the very talented Belfast based producer, Maricopa. He first came to my attention in 2012 with his debut release on the reliably good Tusk Wax label. I’ve been keenly following him since then and in that time he has gone on to have releases with Back To The Balearics, Fools & Fables Recordings and Above Machine.

You should also check out the other mixes/podcasts he has put together via his Soundcloud page. You’ll find a treasure trove of eclectic goodness. For now though, here is the mix he has done for my show, Different Strokes on Box Frequency… Enjoy!!

Different Strokes – Show 3 – Part 1 – Mannmademusic




The third Different Strokes show has rolled around pretty quickly and it feels like we’re getting up a head of steam now. This months guest is none other than the fabulous Mannmademusic, aka Iain Mann. I first encountered Mannmademusic‘s output when I happened to stumble across the Audio Parallax  label in the run up to their first release. I had been a keen follower of Matthew Kyle (aka NoRequests / Softmore) and the debut EP from APR came from Mannmademusic and featured a remix from Matthew Kyle. I think my blog might even have been the first to have featured APR via the Soundcloud Sunday posts I used to do on the Blogger platform and can recall a rather chuffed label boss David Kenney e-mailed me the same day to thank me for including the label in my post; which in turn made me rather chuffed because most people didn’t take the time to do such a thing as write a thank you note.

Three years down the line and Mannmademusic has a string of very well received releases under his belt, including a few vinyl releases on respected labels such as Glenview, Shadeleaf and Lumberjacks In Hell…. with more in the pipeline. So having been a keen follower of his output for a few years now, it was a real bonus to have been given the chance to air an exclusive DJ set from Mannmademusic for my Different Strokes show on Box Frequency.

As usual, you will find a linked up tracklist below the Soundcloud player. Enjoy!!!

Different Strokes – Show 2 – Part 2 – Mixamorphosis

Different Strokes - Show 02



Part 2 of the Different Strokes Radio Show, as usual, comes from myself. Septembers show follows on from Part 1 and has a 4/4 flavour, although slightly slower. As is often the case, I got a little bored sticking with the 4/4 vibe and spiralled into something more eclectic. I hope you don’t mind :)

It won’t be too long before we hit Octobers show, which airs on 15th October over on Box Frequency….. my guest will be the highly talented Mannmademusic.

Different Strokes Radio Show – Show 2 – PART 1 – Simon Cox

Different Strokes - Show 02

Due to being a little under the weather of late, I’m a bit slower than I’d normally be in getting this months mixes posted to the blog. Although not 100%, I’m a little better and I’m taking the opportunity to get some work done online.

Septembers show, broadcast on the 17th of the month, was well received by the regulars in the Box Frequency chatroom, which makes my involvement with the station worth all the effort. My guest this month was Simon Cox, a friend of many years having grown up in the same area and gone to the same school. Simon has been DJ-ing as a hobby for many years now, and much like myself, he does it for the love of the music he listens to. Apart from putting excellent sets together, Simon has recently started to dip his toes into the world of production, so I very much encourage you to head over to his Soundcloud page and have a dig around.

Onto the music; as usual you will find the tracklist below the music player and it is linked up as best as possible with where to get your hands on the music used. Enjoy!

Different Strokes – Show 1 – Part 2 – Mixamorphosis

dL & Mixa


Yesterday I posted Part 1 of the debut ‘Different Strokes’ show which was contributed by The dL, so today it’s onto Part 2 which was put together by me. As I mentioned in my post yesterday, I really feel that the guests are the stars (well apart from the music itself of course) and I feel like I’m riding on their coat tails. Creating mixes has always been about fun for me. It’s not about being a ‘DJ’ and it’s not about trying to become a DJ; it’s purely about playing music that I enjoy and having a little fun at the same time. If other people enjoy the selections of music that I put together, then that is a big bonus.

As will become the norm, the tracklist is below and will be linked to where you can buy them (or grab free if that is how they are available). I hope you enjoy both the mixes from the first show, if you do, please ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ my guests through the links I provide, and if you have enjoyed what I have done you can follow me through the usual places to keep up to date with what is going on…. links for me are on the side menu.
