This is my first music recommendation post. I intend to write a proper post about why I love music so much, what music I like, my history with music etc. However, for the time being I wanted to recommend some of the stuff that I’ve been listening to.
If you’ve not heard of Mixcloud (really poor from you), it’s a kind of Social Media music forum that predominantly DJs use to post their mixes. There is also a lot of podcasts on Mixcloud, as it allows them to play music in their shows, unlike Sound Cloud.
I’ve only recently started to appreciate Mixcloud properly, and I’ve come to realise just how great it is. DJ mixes are so useful when you’re working out, driving (in the UK its now illegal to touch your phone whilst you’re driving, so it’s hard to change music on the go), commuting… basically in any situation where you can’t be bothered to think about the next song to listen to. It’s also a great way to discover new music.
Anyway, here are a few of the mixes that I’ve been listening to recently – it should give you a bit of a feel for the type of music I like (the 90s Rnb mix is amazing btw):

(I’m hoping to start posting more frequent recommendations on the music section of this blog so keep an eye out and subscribe to get notifications whenever I post!)
Any questions, please contact me.
Ciao for now – Elz, the Witch.
