Update 09-08-08: I uploaded the file again to Zshare:

DJ Talbot - Original Mixes - Trip-hop Vol. 1

and I will post the link as soon as the upload is complete.
I will also post the mix in a more permanent place (Odeo) and make it available via iTunes.

I use Odeo to host my mixes (60!) and pass them on to iTunes. Odeo recently changed the interface and it's really generic. My files, with art and play-lists, can still be accessed at a legacy address. I can't get my mix uploaded today, as Odeo always times out, so I will post it on zShare for now. I have a new Like Sugar nearly ready, but I am not happy with the voice-over. The mix of music is great.

I am going to upload as many older mixes as possible. I did a series of trip-hop mixes from 2000 - 2004. Some tracks beat-mix and some just fade into each other. The series was very popular among my friends, and I went through stacks of CD-Rs and two burners. I DJ'd at clubs and bars and house parties as a strictly trip-hop DJ. At the time, I guess there weren't a lot of people playing this stuff live.

Below is the play-list for the first trip-hop / chill-out / after-hours / down-tempo CD I created. I hope you enjoy it. I had a great time re-visiting these tracks. They stand up quite well and sound as modern and relevant today as they did some years back.

01 - Emiliana Torrini - Unemployed In Summertime
02 - Lux - 100 Billion Stars
03 - Everything But The Girl - The Heart Remains A Child
04 - Esthero - That Girl
05 - Hooverphonic - Eden
06 - Lamb - Gabriel
07 - Mandalay - Beautiful
08 - Thievery Corporation - Lebanese Blonde
09 - Lightning Seeds - You Showed Me (cover)
10 - Morcheeba - The Sea
11 - Neverwood - Sky
12 - Puracane - Summertime Rolls (Jane's Addiction cover)
13 - Lovage - Book of the Month

LYRICS: The Heart Remains A Child

I dreamed about you again last night
You never have the same face twice
but I always know its you and
and you're always looking better than you really do
and you really do.

I walk around the whole next day
feeling like a still have something to say
but I don't know what it is
and I don't know how to reach you even if I did, even if I did.

Do I wanna hear that you forgive me?
Do I wanna hear you're no good without me?
and am I big enough to hear that you never even think about me.
why should you ever think about me?

And I thought that I'd outgrow this kind of thing.
Tell me, aren't we supposed to mature or something.
But I haven't found that yet.
Is this as grown up as we'll ever get?
Maybe this is as good as it gets.

And years may go by.
But I think the heart remains a child.
The mind may grow wise, but the heart just sulks, and it whines,
and remains a child, I think the heart remains a child.
Why don't you love me? Why don't you love me? Why don't you love me?
