Leighton Jones’ excellent Keytars & Violins MP3 blog is my usual starting point when I put together my part of The Joint playlist every week. The brilliant selections of deep techno, deep house, retro disco, and old synth action – mostly from artists and labels I possibly never would have discovered on my own – keep me going back for more.
As well as posting tracks Leighton also posts delicious mixes full of hypnotic tech-house. Perfect stuff for long plane and train rides. Last year I contacted Leighton and asked him if he would like to put together a mix for The Joint. To our delight he was keen to oblige and we played the mix on our 16 January 2010 show.
