Funky Funky Christmas
The artwork was rushed to get this project finished; I wanted to do four separate Christmas mixes before the end of Christmas Eve. I don't personally like Christmas music, and I don't celebrate Christmas, so it was a bit more of a challenge than usual. (I'm not against it, I just don't take part in it). I wanted to see what I could come up with as an alternative to all the usual stuff you hear, without making a load of 'anti-Christmas' mixes, which I figured no-one would want to hear.
This is a circular mix - if you listen to it on a loop, the end should bring you back to the beginning fairly smoothly.
The Run DMC track is in the only 'Christmas' film I enjoy watching - Die Hard.
