Welcome to the Cookie-Dough Guest mix where we invite some of favourite DJ / Producers to answer a few questions and dig deep into their collections and put together a mix of their favourite records.
For this episode we have invited DJ, edit man and disco connoisseur Chuggin Edits to spin some of the records that have influenced him over the years.
Nice one Chuggin Edits!
A few words from Chuggin Edits…
England seems to be the place to be for Disco-editors.
Chuggin Edits is from Essex near London (And just far enough away from London as he describes) and yes – he’s a Disco-connoisseur. And yes, this is his Cookie Dough Mix.
If you haven’t been familiar with the man in charge, his Soundcloud-profile offers you an immense collection of his art and everyone should be able to pic a couple of favorites amongst those.
His First ever release on Deep Sense- First Voyage an edit of A Tribe Called Quest was the best selling track on that compilation and they gladly asked him back on the new Deep Sense – 2nd Voyage, so there’s certainly a lot more to be expected from the talented guy in the near future. But for now – lean back and enjoy this journey.
