You know sometimes I like to stray away a little from what we generally cover on this blog cause I just love music of almost every conceivable genre.
And so here’s a little mix I did a while back called “Stories For A Melancholic”, which was inspired by, dedicated to & is in tribute to my all-time favourite Mash Up Melancholic, Phil RetroSpector!
So what can you expect?
It contains many Phil Retrospector gems but also some original tracks and one or two mash up’s by other producers and showcases a more sensitive me, so it’s very laid back, moving, lush and kind of emotional down-tempo!
It’s been a small kept secret up until now and some peeps have even admitted shedding tears to it…ahhhhh!
I just hope by sharing it with you and many others HERE, you might just like it, a bit, maybe and at the very least I hope it encourages you to find out more about PHIL RETROSPECTOR.
