Mister snowman – (winter mixtape side 1) by Clockwatcher on Mixcloud

so following on from last year’s winterval mix thingy, where I ended up regretting the way the christmas stuff cramped a more general wintry mood, here’s the first side of this year’s effort – a seasonal, not particularly festive, selection. this is the more ‘upbeat’ side. kicking off the party with some vibraphone powered reggae (nothin’ says christmas-time like that right?) and nino nardini’s icebreaker, we soon find that it’s that miss minerva who has invited along the andrews sisters and liberace to deck the halls and jolly things up a little, there’s a brief dubstep interlude before mr funk steps up to pass on his useful wisdom regarding the care of your all important ice bear and our man from the vatican, mr fernow bids us meditate on the message of the season. their talking done, sam ‘walls’ willis brings back the winterval techno, we put aside our sherry and cut a merry rug. or some such thing. and all beneath a thick layer of crunchy snow. be sure to wrap up warm. and so on

here’s the tracklist, click the picture if you want to download rather than mixcloud…
