For May we have an exclusive 2 hour guest set from Stuart of NICETRAXUK. Regular listeners to this show will be familiar with Stuart, and the label he runs with Patrick Foley, which has developed a carefully curated back catalog of excellent releases with a firm emphasis on quality, both in the music, and the way it is visually and physically presented, and while the label does release digitally, it is evident that Stuart and Pat take great pride in being able to release their music on vinyl, for those who care enough to want to invest in quality.
Their last release, the Evans Above EP by Dubble D was in my top 3 tracks of 2018 and remains the only track ever to have appeared twice on this show. The theme of this mix has been built around the forthcoming NICE008 release and includes unreleased tracks from it. Enough from me, enjoy 2 hours of early Summer shaped by the sound of Stuart for NICETRAXUK.

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.

First session of 2019 assumes a deep, dreamlike state for much of the session, with an appearance from one of my favourite early 00s tracks, the Charles Webster trumpet dub of Thru 2 u by Echomen, as well as plenty of tender and tasty morsels from &ME, Karol XII & MB Valence, and long time favourite here at Deep Transmissions, Mark Hand.
