A Year In The Life

Here's something for you to dance over whilst enjoying the left over turkey.

2010 - my Annus Horribilus. Few highs and unbelieveable lows. So me being me, what better way than to tell the story of my year, than via a good old fashioned full-length mix/album.

The sequel to this year's Physics Disco mix, this is my beloved mash-step, covering my breakup, muggings, burglaries, a day at the seaside, my first (amazing) dubstep event, wrong thoughts that could get me in trouble, and general boozing.

This is the only place where you'll find Daniel Beddingfield sitting alongside my beloved Magnetic Man, Charlie Chaplin talking (!) over my beloved Skream, Sir Cliff Richard becoming cool and relevant again, and yes - Celine Dion over a booming dubstep sawtooth bass line. This is the sound of me moving on.

Happy New Year everyone, let's see what 2011 brings the world of Colatron....

Big thanks as always to The Reborn Identity for supplying approx 40% of the material used in this, to DJ UMB and FLeCK for the inspiration, to Alan for leaving me odd voicemails (it's difficult) and everyone else who inspires and helps me. And to you know who for a great musical year.

See you in 2011

ANDY! (Romanian barrel-chester halloing and twirling his mustachios) LAD!

You've made another lovely album that every Croat should obtain for his Lithuanian sweetheart. The music is pungent, the lyrics rusky, the beats quontillious, the fashion abstracted from a painting of a dill pickle. I feel itchy, but happy.

And why not three tracks about venereal disease? WHY NOT?

Rub me down and call me Ham. I love you.
