David Bowie will be sorely missed by millions for years to come. You’ve read all the personal tributes, goodbyes and obituaries the past day or so all over the internet on blogs, mags and on the telly.

I’m not going to go into a huge spiel about what David Bowie meant to me or about how he cool he was when he was hanging out with my friends. I will just say this though, he did some life changing stuff that had a huge impact and influence upon me, he did some ok stuff which was pretty bland and he also did some really questionable stuff which was pretty awful. But what I loved about him most was that he didn’t really give a fuck, he did what he wanted to do.  The greatest thing of all is that he did things first and kept on evolving and changing and took risks unafraid of their success or failure. And, that there will never be another Bowie!

Here’s 2 awesome things that I picked up on Soundcloud paying tribute to him.

First up there’s an amazing remix worthy of inclusion and a most fitting tribute by our boy Streamer. I just think this is sublime:

Next up is an amazing mix by Dazed Digital. This mix encompasses my favourite Bowie tracks from my most favourite period of his, the Eno & Nile Rodgers period. It’s pretty perfect!

Here’s what Dazed say:

“Everyone has their favourite David Bowie musical era. For me, it was when he teamed up with Brian Eno in 1977 to create “The Berlin Trilogy” of albums – Low, Heroesand Lodger – followed by his hyper pop work with Nile Rodgers on Let’s Dance. He was one of my ultimate synth heroes; a star who revelled in creating everything from ambient electronic soundscapes and chart topping synth pop, to IDB and brutal industrial music. I created this mix to celebrate his massive contribution to electronic music, which was broadcasted live on NTS last night as a tribute to the great man. From the hits to some deep cuts you may not have heard before, take some time out and submerge yourself in an hour of the master’s immortal synth oddities.”
