Just a brief note to wish you all a happy New Year, and to thank you all for dropping by this year.
The mix above is a selection of my favorite individual tracks from the past year here at Iron Leg.
I enjoy doing these year-end mixes because they give me a chance to reconsider/relisten to a bunch of cool tracks. A fairly large percentage of the tunes I feature here and at Funky16Corners are records that I’ve known and loved for years. That said, I go through a very rewarding process of rediscovery when selecting and digi-ma-tizing them, but once the posts are finished, I continue to move forward with new(er) material. Ironically, the tunes I tend to listen to repeatedly are those that I include in the podcasts, which make up a significant amount of my recreational listening.
There’s also the added benefit of rehearing these songs in close proximity to one another.
As always, there’s a pretty wide stylistic variety here, and if there’s something you don’t dig, hang on tight because something cool isn’t far behind.
I hope you dig the selection, and that you come back in 2009 for some more sounds.
I’ll be back on Monday.
Peace & Happy New Year
