With the clocks rolling forward the end of March finds me in a reflective mood with this summer marking the 8th anniversary of Kenny Hawkes' death. The recent re-issue of his track 'Play the game' including an affectionate tribute mix by Luke Solomon in the form of the Space Children extended love mix, has nudged my mind back to all those times spent in the dark with nothing but Kenny's late night alchemy to focus on, and how those were some of the best times I've ever spent on a dancefloor. Each generation, if they are lucky enough, will find their own Kenny Hawkes, an inspirational figure who carries the culture forward by sheer dint of their generosity and talent. I count myself as deeply fortunate to have known this one. So many wonderful cuts on this session but the standout tracks which I have to mention are the opening 'Ride On' by Ali Love and Kenny Glasgow, and the brilliant Daniel Ray remix of I remember Love by Glass Slipper.
