#11 'Moving House' by Andy Grant


A superb mix by Edinburgh's own Andy Grant.

In his own words: "In May I'll be moving permanently to my wife's home town Washington DC from Edinburgh. Its a big move to make, and a lot of planning has been going into it. A major consideration is shipping the record collection across the Atlantic, and over the last few weeks I've been starting to pack up records into boxes, trying to decide what I can live without for the next few months, and what I need to have close at hand!

It was while packing up records that I started working on this mix. I just couldn't make up my mind what kind of mix to do....then I came across a Columba Corina 2 x 12" on Defender records from 1997 as I was packing some old records away - an amazing collection of tunes that I'd never used on a mix before, or even heard played by anyone else. I used a couple of tracks from that record as the basis for this mix, and built it up from there, trying to include as wide a variety of styles as possible, while still keeping it deep. Those Columba Corina tracks really stand out for me in this mix, but my favourite track of the bunch in Hot Chix by Mister J. Simply beautiful. Moving house is taking up a lot of my time just now, and I hope that's what I've managed to capture in this mix - truly moving house."
