Guest Mix: Oli Hannaford

Oli Hannaford just has that thing, ya know? Don’t you? Of course you do, but also it’s Friday eve so we can’t be bothered explaining. Anyway, the lovely man has just released his new track Locker and given us the exclusive first play, along with kicking off our brand new Guest Mix series on Spotify. Over to the man himself…

“Locker is about encouraging someone that’s having a bad night (and maybe even bringing everyone else down) to step out of their comfort zone. It kind of says that everybody has the potential to go wild on a night out, they just may not know it yet. I wrote Locker last year but wanted to wait until I was a bit better behind the desk before I produced it, so I could give it the cleaner production I felt it deserved.

“I was struggling to make a playlist this short to be fair – there are SO many tracks and artists that I listen to and love. I’ve never tired of listening to D’Angelo and Nat King Cole so they had to be in there, but other than that I guess my taste is dominated by very recent music. There’s a mix of stuff that makes you want to get up and go, stuff that makes you want to have sex, and then James Blake rounds it all off with a song which really gets me in the feels.”
