Week 51 - 29th July -  4th August - The Sound of Slumber (Chill out Kids)
One thing I’ve noticed since I’ve been going to family friendly music festivals is that there are plenty of things for parents and young children to do together throughout the day, but not so much at night. Especially as some parents want to start winding down their kids once dusk appears and the gnarly-ness begins. So I had the idea to create a mix that would appeal to adults and kids alike, especially those looking to wind down as the headline band hits the main stage. So after furnishing myself with a Horlicks, donning my nightcap and gown grabbing a pile of ambient and kids records I set to work.
It’s an early version of something I’d actually like to pitch to festivals and something I think could work - just think of a CBBC version of The Orb. Anyway, try it on the kids over the summer holidays when you’re struggling to get them to wind down and let me know if it works.

Week 48 - 8 - 14th July - A Field in England Podcast
To be honest it’s been a busy week and this week’s scheduled Create#52 was never going to be ready especially as I’d spent the whole of Saturday out of the house in Sheffield (listening to tunes), Buxton (at their big carnival), Chesterfield (watching cricket) and Nottingham (watching The Ashes - major highlight).
So struggling to get my project done, I decided to fall back on Tuesday’s special Purple Radio Show and the podcast - The Sound of Slumber - A Field in England.
I’d decided as with the previous two summers to do special themed shows and this year is three parts again. Part 1 - A Field in England (inspired by the film of the same name - which I really recommend). OK not really inspired, but I love the title - and it made me think of all the English artists who made great dance and electronic music that translated beyond an underground scene. Those who made dance music that appealed to people who didn’t like dance music…not without stimulants.
Any way, enjoy - I’m going to get back on with this week’s project.

Week 47 - 1st - 7th July - The Field Recording Mix


Create 52 - Week 47 - The Field Recording by Tat on  Mixcloud




A bit of an odd one this, but I’d been meaning to do it since day one of this project. I’ve been recording sounds on my phone using the brilliant Audioboo App for about three years after an initiative by the British Library to capture the sounds of a city, starting with Sheffield. So armed with my phone and went and recorded the demolition of the old fire station in the centre of the city - I think the demolition team thought I was nuts.
Over the last three years I have recorded over 50 sets of sounds, most sound rough-ish, but it is a phone I’m using not an mp3 recorder. It is a great way to capture history as it allows you to paint your own pictures, I have recorded my daughter loads of times and it’s lovely to hear how she has developed her speech throughout that time.
The mix was inspired obviously by the great ambient soundtracks of the KLF, Eno and Orb et al. In addition a follow up to my own oddity - The Slumber Soundsystem - The Sound of Slumber
As for the sounds included in this mix - well try and guess them. I will say there are various cricket grounds, cities, a football match, festivals, the seaside, woods, roads, cooker fans, lift shafts and acid 303 jams crammed in there plus many more - sometimes three sounds at once.
I put the mix together in one take, using the free version of virtual DJ for the first time, so please forgive the scruffyness of it all. Try and listen with headphones and don’t take any brown acid, oh and don’t drive when you’re listening to this - you have been warned. Hope you enjoy The Sound of Slumber Part 2
