How to get it
is the link. Here is an idiot’s guide of what to do with it

You can also get it direct from or via itunes music store.

You really should subscribe – all the previous mixes rate amongst the highlights of my year. I’m slightly reticent about lowering the tone with this one, but only slightly 😉


What’s it all about?

Blogariddims doesn’t have an office, which is just as well – given the people involved I doubt that much work would ever get done. That doesn’t mean we can’t have an office party, though, does it?

Crack open your chosen festive tipple and blast this out whilst wearing your most ill-fitting suit. For my part I created the correct atmosphere by chugging down a pint of mulled wine before even touching the turntables. So, swing your arms in the air… think about who you will try to catch under the miseltoe… scan in your arse. Despite my state of inebriation, I take full responsibility for the music here – this time of year is not the point to get obscure and credible.

Bonus blogariddims festive competition

Blogariddims being what it is, some of you may be less extrovert than others. Never mind lurking in the corner, we have a special ice-breaking party game for you lot. Being attentive to detail, you will have already noticed there is no tracklisting for this mix. Instead, each track is flagged up by a short quote from its lyrics.

Your mission, spotters, is to identify as many tracks as you can and then email the name of the artists and tunes to me by midnight on the 17th of January 2007. Use the [eden at uncarved dot org] email address with the subject line “blogariddims festive competition”.

The person who gets the most artists and/or titles correct will be sent a CD of my “Best of 2006” mix, which will not appear online anywhere, and will only be burnt to 23 CDs. The full tracklist of the Office Party Mix will appear here on this blog on the 18th of January.


  1. I will get on that, but beware the xmas post… I guess when they hear it most people will know some of the tunes, but nobody (nobody I tells ya!) will know all of them….

  2. so I don’t want to use i-tunes cos it’s a tool of the man. etc.

    how the hell do i do this podcast nonsense otherwise?

  3. Great mix! Just a shame I chanced upon it after Christmas and therefore missed the chance to have it soundtrack the season.

    Also, I came at this from a fairly circuitous route. I actually ended up here after trying to find out more about “dubstep”. Being slow on the uptake as usual, the birth of a “new music” caught me napping. Anyway, however it happened, good to see that you are still out there. And a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  4. Thanks for yer comments people! Keep the entries for the competition coming in – nobody has identified a large number of tracks yet, so it’s anyone’s game…
