Ironic Tonic by baleariksoul

Paul Williams (aka baleariksoul) was one of the founders of the label Beard Science which describes itself as "an anarcho-communistic band of hairy editors"It was "pretty much my brainchild but it has taken on a life of its own. What you need to remember is that Beard Science is an international affair and is being cared for and guided by people who really love the idea of working together and exposing the best and most creative edits out there." Today Paul deals in vintage vinylAlthough he is no longer available for DJing gigs, he does still do the occasional mix for blogs such as Another Night On Earth and music host sites such as Soundcloud.

About this mix he says: “I did it in 2006 and the idea was to really jumble musical styles up as much as possible.  Here I love the extreme of being able to sequence Glen Campbell's “Wichita Lineman” and then three or four tunes later you’ve got a Reverso 68 12” on the deck. Of course in 2006 this was still maybe a little risqué but in 2009 it’s possibly the norm. I saw a really nice comment about this mix today. Someone called it “a balearic masterclass” – really very touching”.
