Happy New Year!

This comes to you via the magic of the 'scheduled post' feature as I'm off gallivanting and will be unlikely to string many words together for a few days.

Here's a very special post on behalf of a very special blog. A few days ago I got an email from Ctel from Acid Ted, asking if I could post the following mix. A no-brainer of course, and for a very worthy cause.

Here's the blurb from Ctel:

Happy New Year to you. To get the new year off to a cracking start, I’m offering you the chance to get an exclusive mix from the marvellous but mysterious Error Operator. This mix is not available anywhere else. All you have to do is make a small donation to charity. Email me with the reply and I’ll send you the mix. It’s that simple.

You will want this mix.

It starts with the brilliant but brooding “Moth” by Burial and Four Tet before going on to mixes of Foals and Burial himself. It even has some Tinie Tempah bfore ending with James Blake and ultimately coming a full circle to a remix of Four Tet. This is a quiet evening with a bottle of fine red.

I’d like others to benefit from the time that Error Operator has put in. In particular, to raise money for research on brain tumours in children. Brain tumours are the commonest solid tumours in children in the UK and USA. More children now die from a brain tumour than any other childhood cancer. If you want a copy of the mix, here’s how to donate:

TO DONATE: Give directly to the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust (UK) by donating here or Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation (USA) here or to a children’s cancer charity in your own country. Once you have done so, you will get an emailed reply from them. Forward that email to me ( and I will send you a link to the mix. Please, please donate. How much you donate is up to you (£5 = US$7 / EUR5). If you need to know why these charities are so important, see my story here or little Thomas’ story here.

Finally, if any readers are bloggers themselves, could you please promote this mix on your sites. It’s in a good cause. Thank you. Email me with the link and I’ll send you a copy of the mix.

And my sincere thanks and gratitude to Error Operator for making this appeal possible.

Right - get clicking, viewers. If you've downloaded stuff from this site over the last couple of years then you'd be a miserable sod not to...
