Happy birthday, Slipmatt! This year he celebrates an achievement never reached by him before: his 50th birthday. Now that’s an achievement, I’ve got 17 years to go. And to be frank, most people who reach the magic number 50 slow down and start to get used to watering flowers and watching Emmerdale on repeat and drink lots of tea, but not Slipmatt. Age is just a number, and he keeps on doing his thing, even on his actual birthday! Yes, you read it right: this podcast/mix was recorded on his own birthday. How about that for dedication, eh?
Before people get annoyed and disappointed, let me warn you, this mix isn’t Oldskool Rave. Nope, far from it, it’s House. Slipmatt decided to do something different, and it has paid off. His first House podcast mix. This man is such a legend, it’s good to hear that he plays literally everything underneath the sun. Which makes me wonder: how big is his collection? It must be seriously big. And impressive. Because he has got everything you want to hear, and he plays everything every week, not just on this podcast but also his ‘World Of Rave’ show, or when he plays live all over the world.
Slipmatt is a legend, and you can hear him throughout this mix. Giving a bit of background information, or simply showing how happy he is hearing the tune he’s playing. Again, this ain’t Rave or anything Breakbeat related, this is House. Recorded in Slipmatt’s House. Hence the title of this podcast. Get it?

Wow! What a mix! Have you listened to this already? You should, this is the perfect music to wake up to. It’s Sunday, it’s boring, and we need something unique, something fresh and uplifting. I think I found it. Yes, waking up to Rave and Breakbeat is also really wicked, but let’s slow down today. Relax, and enjoy this chill out session by Slipmatt.
I love House music, but I think I’ve lost touch. I don’t know 99% of these artists. Even though I was into House since the early 90s, the last couple of years my attention has gone to other styles. Thanks to Slipmatt it’s time for me to get back into this wonderful style, and embrace it once again. There’s more to life than just Hardcore, eh?
You can hear throughout the mix that Slipmatt is enjoying himself. He’s really digging the tunes, and so am I. Which one is my favourite? ‘Flawless’. Such a dancefloor anthem. Like the original record which had the ‘Flawless’ lyrics in it.
Join me in saying ‘Happy birthday Slipmatt’, and play this mix out loud. I think the only way you can say ‘thank you for what you’ve done so far for the music industry’ is to play it out loud and make sure everyone around you listens too! My gran is listening to it, and she’s bouncing (nah, not really, but in my mind she is). Try and get people dancing this Sunday morning!
Slipmatt is not just a legend within the Hardcore/Rave scene. He’s an allround entertainer. That should be his job title….
