My summer started well with a great set at Festival 8's silent disco. 

Playing to an audience that can switch channels at will, requires a playlist that appeals to a wide cross section whilst retaining its place between the sounds provided by the other 2 dj's. I delved into my edits and remixes folder and pulled out a selection of mid tempo dance classics with a bit of edge, which worked nicely with the late night crowd. See mix below.

I also enjoyed the dance workshops hosted by DJ Hugh G Ego aka Christopher Boylan and plan to meet up again at one of the 5rhythms workshops that he organizes across the north of England. 

Our sessions at ReCreate were quiet over summer with many members away or burdened with childcare or working commitments, that said we still managed to make some signage  and star mobiles for The Celebrate event in Mossley that my daughter helped to produce with Global Grooves.

I'm also just putting the finishing touches to a website make-over for local pet care providers animal assistance. It's been good to brush up on my wordpress skills.

Looking ahead we have another Mossly light festival coming up on November 25th, I am looking forward to seeing what gets created for it.

here's a link to my silent disco mix, featuring a selection of tracks played on the night.
