The Remix with Eden Blackman playlist 6th Jan 2017 on Soho Radio

The first of two guest driven show-takeovers by good friends with great taste. I didn't ask Eden for his looks, or the fact that he presents a show on E4, it's because we are such musical kindred spirits and I knew his tune choice would be first class. This is, after all, the man with whom I've seen every Janes Addiction show I've ever been to, and with whom I will be nodding on a thorax-pivot at Russian Circles upcoming London show...but more than that, deeper than that...he's the biggest Van Halen fan I know, the biggest Jeff Buckley fan I know, and he's a massive Japan fan too. With that as the bedrock, the fact that he's worked woth Chase & Status since their ground breaking first album, and with Sub Focus, for years, I knew we would be in safe hands. This show has always been about the under-dogs, and the fact Eden played Spacehog says it all really. If you missed this, you missed ah absolute joy to listen to. This was Eden's radio debut, and you'll agree that by two or three links in, he sounded like he'd been doing it for years.
