Balcony Beats #27 – 7 March 2021

Days and days of heavy rain led up to this weekend, and I wanted to make a mix with lots of variety and a sunshine feel to it, not least to keep me moving and warm when spinning it live, outside!

Days and days of heavy rain led up to this weekend, and I wanted to make a mix with lots of variety and a sunshine feel to it, not least to keep me moving and warm when spinning it live, outside! It’s an optimistic mix, with all of Gibraltar now vaccinated against COVID-19, we are looking forward to brighter times.

Note: We had some technical issues at the start and near the end with the YouTube livestream below, but it’s still watchable.
