Have you ever done a mixtape before? If yes – when was the first time and for which person? If not – why not and for which person would you do one?
Of course! I think my first mixtape that I ever made was in school for a girl that I fancied at the time. I can’t really remember what I put on it to be honest but it must have worked because she ended up becoming my girlfriend. Although we did split up a few weeks later (we were about 13 at the time)

Which format would you prefer for your mixtape: Cassette, CD, digital playlist?
I Like the romance of giving a mixtape on cassette or CD but realistically I feel like one of the best times to listen to a good mixtape is on the bus home after a night out so I’m going have to say Digital.  

Insider tips that the listener won’t know or mainstream hits?
I’ve just gone for mix of tracks I’m into and I’ve snuck in an Edit we did of one our songs Breathing Space in there too.

Sad/emotional or dance/party songs?
I’m a big fan of music that you can dance to so I think my playlist definitely leans more to the party / Dance end of the spectrum. 

Listing songs one after the other or planning a tonal climax?
Planning a good mixtape is like planning a good setlist list you have to think out the order as well as the selection of songs otherwise people listening get bored.

If you could choose an artist/band, who should do a mixtape for you – which one would it be and why?
I’m gonna assume for the purposes of these questions I get to use a time machine and say David Bowie.  He’s such an influential figure and obviously incredible artist that I be would intrigued to know more about the music that influenced him. I know he was around artists like velvet underground  john lennon, iggy pop, lou reed, Nile Rodgers etc and they all interacted to varying degrees but I would still love more of an insight to the music that he listened to on his own for pleasure.
