What do you get when you cross the Chemical Brothers with Flanders and Swann? David Eagle’s Pick and Mix: episode 1.

So here it is, the first ever David Eagle’s Pick and Mix, just in time for the new Chinese year – the year of the rabbit, which should be manner from heaven for the promotions team at Ann Summers.

56 songs in a 40 minute mix. A DJ set that is designed to celebrate the universality of music: no genre dictations or restriction about the time period of the music. This is not a DJ
Set for the club; this is a DJ set for your ears, for your soul. I’m not trying to impassion you to char char slide to my beats, or wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care, or “oo oo” to the rhythm. I’ve just realised that I’m probably coming across as a pretentious snob, but the point I’m trying to make is that this is a mix designed for the music fan: someone who doesn’t bass their music preferences purely on a cultural identity – because a certain group of people say that a certain song or artist is “cool” or “the latest thing”.
My last blog post
was a fairly extensive explanation of why I wanted to release this project, so I think the best thing to do now is to just give you the links to listen and download and hopefully enjoy what I’ve put together.

I’ve provided a full tracklist of the music featured in the mix. There is also a link to a free Spotify playlist that contains most of the tracks in the mix. Not all the tracks are hosted on Spotify but I thought it would be good to provide a playlist with those songs that Spotify does have because a lot of the tracks are only featured in the mix for short periods of time and are generally mixed with other songs. Plus if you don’t enjoy my mixing, you can hopefully at least hear some quality music that you might have not heard before.

So then, here it is: David Eagle’s Pick and Mix: Episode 1.
