What do you listen to the day after some other bastard won the 44 million lotto? Music to sooth ya growing depression I guess.. some shiney happy fucking REM? Well hells no, stop the happy music is good for you cart.. this ain’t Westworld where some how a robot can magically come to life defying everything we know about science and logic…  this ain’t some magic land populated by dragons and fairies where good will triumph no matter what the odds nor spider size. This isn’t the USA where to actually …

There are a bunch of great contenders for my pick of mixes this week, West’s latest plus for example… but I’m elbowing him out in favour of some other locals who’ve just released an EP for Feel My Bicep… which is quite the achievement for a Dunners based duo!

The kickoff track for this weeks Kenny Dope podcast is so me that the mix automatically earns my pick for the week… even if I’ve listened to the youtube clip of the track way more than the mix – which gets a bit hipperty hopperty in the middle which while cool isn’t really my thang.
Now for some serious sunshine… weather gods!

Last week a random remix popped up on my iTunes which I’d not listened to since I added it eons ago… as can sometimes happen I took time out of my busy schedule (yeah right) and went off in search of the editor looking for some newer gems to add to my library and ears… which lead me to grab some mixes, and this week’s mix of the week features one such beast…a really nice passing time by with pleasant sounds type affair – i.e. perfect for the office or …
