This is a mix of soporific ditties that I have stumbled across during my many hours of hobbyist music listening. I have been compiling this compilation of music slowly over the course of my first two years living in New Zealand having emigrated from Ireland. I was always someone who avidly and voraciously devoured new (to me, at least) music at a ferocious pace and I now host a specialist jazz show on a local independent radio station called Radio Active in Wellington. As a result my music listening is more focused in that I am always researching new music for my show, much of which is not suitable for the format and some of which has ended up here.
Over the last five years, I seem to have turned from an active composer and musician to someone who instead collects large, cumbersome and often hideously expensive music making equipment more for their visual appeal and use as a obstacle around which to be manoeuvred. Hence, I decided to put together this mix for Warren at Invisible Agent, who has patiently been waiting many years (has it been a decade?) for me to produce some new music for the label. This is, I hope the first step towards that eventual end. – Love Rhino
