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
