Advent Day 2016 #12 – Simon Lloyd – Shindig Blockparty Mixtape
We last brought you music from Bristol based, Simon Lloyd, quite some time ago in one of our ‘LSM’s 10 Mixes For The Weekend’ blog posts. Simon and I had chatted about him doing an exclusive mix for us but with one thing and another it never came about, so what better time to share his sounds with you all than by having him feature on day number 12 of our advent calendar.
Simon’s cultured taste in music with a groove, has landed him a residency at the fashion store, Harvey Nichols, and one of Bristol’s coolest night spots, No.24. He’s also played Glastonbury for the last 2 years, Grassroots Festival and the very cool, Shindig Weekender festival and it’s the Shindig connection that leads us on to his mix he’s sent over to us that was recorded at the ‘Shindig Weekender Blockparty’, that was held just a couple of weeks ago.
On the night, Simon was warming up for the legendary, Justin Robertson and as your about to hear, he done that perfectly. His sublime one hour set is full to the brim with ultra cool House music that takes off on a rather deep and delicious note that leads on to a tripped out snippet of acid. From there on out, it’s all about funky and groovy House music with a spacey twist and if you’re loving what Simon has laid down in this mix, get over to his his Soundcloud page because there’s even more there waiting your attention!
If all those mixes wasn’t already enough, you can catch him on, Soultrain Radio, every Wednesday night from 8-10pm, but for now, settle in with this amazing mix.
