Welcome to the first ever Cookie-Dough Guest mix were we have invited DJ, producer and re-edit whiz kid Henry Greenwood to dig deep into his collection and put together a mix of records that have influenced him over the years. A prominent figure on the re-edits scene his re-work of Neneh Cherry’s‘Buffalo Stance’ was one of the biggest re-edits of 2013 receiving the ultimate ‘thumbs up’ from Mr Re-Edit himself Greg Wilson. Here at Cookie-Dough HQ we are made up that Henry has taken time out of his busy schedule to put together a one-off belter of a mix just for us. Cheers H!

A few words from Henry…
This was simultaneously the most fun and the hardest thing to do! I decided to go with the honest approach. I’ll probably live to regret it, but when I was 9, I was into pop music, and that ‘s how I’ve started the mix – If you stick with it past the early guilty pleasures (i.e. ace pop tunes) I’ll be really grateful!
The mix ended up quite organically in three sections. It kicks off with tunes I loved growing up, gradually moving into a house party/bar residency/studenty theme. The second section moves into 4/4 territory, and the third section has a kind of after-hours vibe. There are a few pop culture references sprinkled throughout for you as well if you like that sort of thing.
This is a pretty good snapshot, but couldn’t be definitive – it was so hard to keep it to around 90 minutes! There was a whole 2-step/rave/DnB section that hit the cutting room floor, and there’s very little disco as the two Roller Disco mixes I’ve done kind of have that covered. It was a really personal thing to do actually, I relived some really nice memories and hopefully it explains some of the bits and bobs I come up with. Thanks to Ste and Terser for the opportunity to self-indulge!
