Hey we just want to wish MIXCLOUD a huge happy 1st birthday.
I also want to personally thank Mixcloud for giving me so much support since I first started uploading my mixes on their site. I was a little taken aback when they started to give me loads of love and I did not expect it and so thanks a bunch guys.
All the best for the future from all of the Generation Bass team.
Here’s a great birthday mix put together by Nikhil aka DJ Sketchy, one of the main men behind this great music site. As you can see from the mix he has used some stuff he found on Generation Bass after hearing some of my mixes and so BIG up man!
Here’s what he says:
Time really does fly when you’re having fun. I remember 21 September 2009 so clearly – massive countdown timer on the site, phones off the hook, and somehow topping the Twitter trending list with no less than 4 topics!
Without sounding cliched, the past 12 months have been a rollercoaster. Lots of fun & good times, plenty of challenges & lessons learned.
We’re all so proud to have built such a fantastic, creative community – thank you all for being involved. I’m also honoured to have worked with so many inspiring people and companies over the past 12 months – thank you for sharing our vision and supporting the project.
This is my Birthday Mix to Mixcloud, including many tracks & artists discovered directly or indirectly through the site, e.g.
Amede & The Soundsmith via Laid Back
Lunice and TOKiMONSTA via RBMA Radio
Throwing Snow via Jus Like Music
Roska’s Squark via Bleep
Busi Mhlongo via DJ Umb (Generation Bass)
Thank you beloved Mixclouders. Bring on Year 2 😉
