New covers season about to kick off…

The regular fortnightly Cover It Up Soundsystem! mixes/podcasts will kick off again from next week after an extended summer break.

If you’re wondering where the old mixes have gone, I’ve cleared out the archives to make some space for some new mixes. 

I’ve had a good summer transfer market, picking up plenty of great new cover versions and feel like I’ve got a strong squad.  I’m optimistic if we pull together we could make Europe this year…

The formation…

Expect the usual 4-4-2 with a solid reggae and soul cover version back line, some dynamic drum and bass remixes and bootleg maestros in the middle of the park and a few random oddities taking their chances up front. 

As usual I’ll post some previews of the tracks I plan to include over the next few days with a bit of background info as I decide the tracklisting.  The final team sheet will be posted with the mix next Sunday.

Feedback needed – radio-style commentary or just a plain old mix

As a trial I’m planning on posting two versions of each mix – one with my usual ramblings about the tracks played and one sans commentary for your listening pleasure.  Let me know which you prefer by adding your comments and I’ll make a decision which one to run with in the future.

Who are ya?

For those new to The Cover It Up Soundsystem! I post a regular hour-long mix every other Sunday morning featuring regular features such as battle of the covers, theme tune re-tune, remix of the week and the ever popular shite cover of the week.  I also try to include a non-covers mix of the recent internet discoveries and charity shop finds that are floating my boat.  Follow me on Twitter to receive alerts when the mix/new posts/live dates etc are added.

Check out the about us page for more info and look out for us at upcoming gigs throughout the South West, London and wherever else I get invited to play. 

And finally…

I’m looking for a new internet radio home for the eclectic Cover It Up Soundsystem! show.  If you have or know of any free regular slots on a suitable station  please get in touch.
