I had a meeting today at my local pub (which also happens to be Birmingham’s best music venue, if you ask me…). They’ve recently started doing food on site: some guys I met before, when they were at Island Bar in town, are running ‘Soul Food’ at the Hare and Hounds.

On Sundays, they’re doing roast dinners. They’ve only been going a little while, but it’s going well, and they’re going to use the back room especially for table bookings. They’re ramping it up slowly – getting the word out and building a reputation – and from the end of September, they want me to DJ for them. I’m really looking forward to it.

In the meantime, they’ve asked me to do a kind of promo mix that they can use on the website – and this is what I came up with. I know it’s not Sunday, and I know that a roast dinner isn’t strictly ‘soul food’, but you get the idea.

And you don’t have to live somewhere Spotify reaches in order to listen to this mix. Just hit the play button.
