"Mostly dubwise selection..." - Alastair J.

"This mix has been sitting on my virtual desk for half a year... mostly a period of inactivity for the whole site, apart from the always lively message board (big up!). 2006 birthed a new un-corporate lifestyle for me, so hopefully this mix will begin a return to form for mixoftheweek.com. Or, failing that, a return of weak signs of life. Thanks for still being here, folks! And thanks to Alastair J., once again." - Pirkka
