Ole Smokey’s Winter Opus Mix for the Chill Out Tent

We’re pleased to share a very special seasonal mix this December, we’ve got an exclusive set from the king of the re-edit Ole Smokey, it’s a mix of folk, rock, downtempo and all sorts of oddities and a stack of his own special edits. Smokey keeps a low profile, preferring not to get involved in the noise of social media and self promotion but he’s a musical magpie, collector and DJ with global experience.

From early days as a Bowie obsessed art school kid in the north west through punk, jazz, soul and funk in 1980’s Soho, moving on to warehouse parties, the early days of acid house then off to the heady days of mid 90’s San Francisco for an 11 year stay, then back to the UK where industry connections lead him off to Croatia where he was resident at the legendary Garden Festival. For more on this globetrotting story check the interview Smokey did with Dave Pickering at One Million Sunsets.

Check Smokey’s back catalogue of edits on Soundcloud, buy his edits on his Bandcamp and listen to his radio shows and mixes via Mixcloud.

Huge thanks to Smokey for this super mix and a very happy Christmas to all the Chill Out Tent friends and family. We’ve got loads of exciting plans for 2022, see you in the New Year x

Gerry Rooney – The Chill Out Tent Mix

This is the Audio of Gerry Rooney‘s excellent DJ set first streamed in the February edition of The Chill Out Tent. The set was filmed at our London home from Home – The Dartmouth Arms / Disappearing Dining Club. This set caused quite a stir with it’s un-Shazamable tracklist of secret weapons getting the Discogs crew very excited…

Gerry is half of Velvet Seasons and the Heart Of Gold who make excellent music and edits, mostly vinyl only, mostly hard to track down. He was also half of the legendary Black Cock edit label with DJ Harvey. Here he plays a great eclectic set of downtempo tunes for dancing.
