from HC:
Boy, do I have a special treat for you! Just as I thought we were finished, and the selections of best of the year came rushing in, I realized that we have more to celebrate at the turn of the decade. So, the ever trustworthy Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents whipped out his overflowing crates of vinyl and began digging for his favourites to make you another mix! I have to say, there are a lot of surprises on here, and the choices are not that obvious, which makes this unique selection that much more exciting! It’s a trip and a half and is a perfect way to bid farewell to the 10’s of the 21st century. So, turn on, tune in, and of course, drop out…
