Soundhog – Mix90 #7 (24th December 2012)


Yeah, I’m a bit late with this one. Sorry ’bout that. Been away and everything. Anyhows, here’s a new mixtape from bootlegging’s Mr Happy – Soundhog.

Not only is he North Wales’ premiere 41 year old garage mechanic, he’s also an extraordinary bootlegger, who appeared in the GYBO interviews series here and here. His long mixes are somewhat sporadic but always worth waiting for. Notable for the diversity of the tracks used. Hardly your usual rap-plus-popular-tune-of-the-last-five-minutes stuff.

As for what can we expect from this new one, he says “Oh, the usual. Italian prog, Scouse powerpop, Welsh surf rock, Canadian library music, South African psych-soul, Catalonian motorik-dream-electropop, English DIY, German balladry, Japanese glam, Chilean folktronic aceness… plus loads more, knitted together with odd little audio snippets, weird adverts and what have you.”
