Brand new! Mixing Not Mixing on The Mothership - 4 hours of Pablo's favourite records

A new epic mix (not mix) from Fatty Fatty Phonographic's Pablo! A serendipitous meeting in a rare live gig last year (Little Simz) led to Swooner getting its music mitts on this 4 hour epic NOT mix by Pablo recorded in the new amazing Hens Teeth hifi lounge! Enjoy this journey - and thanks Pablo!

From Pablo:
A live recording from the new Hen's Teeth HiFi Lounge. The mixer, amp, and a pair of the mythical Klipschorn speakers were all transplanted from the home set up directly into the lovely room at their HQ in Dublin 8, and the results sound glorious. Stick ye head in for a drink and marvel at one of Dublin's finest audio setups... As the title suggests, this is nearly 4 hours of Pablo's favourite records, with little or no mixing, just a lovely spread of dubby sounds, hip-hop, spiritual jazz, funky'n'soulful roughness, Afro rhythms, NYC dancefloor classics, P-Funk.... all the good stuff!


Check out Pablo on Mixcloud.
Check out Hens Teeth for more events in the HiFi lounge.

The Great Re-Booth mix cover image - illuminati pyramid with eye and record player

If you are a fan of whopper tunes and nominative determinism, boy, do I have the mix for you!  This is from Meath's DJ Ian Booth, a deadly mix of moody progressive and tech-house.  He hasn't made a mix in a while, hence the mix name - but hopefully this will be the first of many to come. It's bangin'!

Stevie G's Swooner Soul Sundae - a brand new mix for Valentine's Day

I am so excited to have a mix by the amazing Stevie G on Swooner -  and what a perfect day for an incredible epic soul mix featuring tonnes of old and new vibes! It's beautiful. 

From Stevie: 

Many years ago I used do a Valentine's mix called the Love mix, basically featuring my fav slow jamz old and new. I was delighted to be asked to do one for Swooner rather than Hater with a similar vibe, and I’ve put together some of my all time favourites, which are very dear to me. These tracks kept me a little sane during the last 12 months, which have been devastating both professionally and personally. I’m sure many of you can empathize; we’ve all been through it! Music provides escape and relief and these tunes are very close to my heart. From slow jams that I grew up with (Anita/Janet/Three Degrees/Carole King), to modern gems (Frank Ocean/Solange/Snoh Aalegra/The Weekend), from old school classics (Stylistics/Stevie Wonder/Chi-Lites/Harold Melvin) to some of my very own personal under the radar weapons (The Originals/The Dells/Bahamdia/Erykah/Mtume), this is a journey into my favourite records of all time! I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I did putting it together

It's absolutely whopper! Thanks Stevie!
