I get the rebirth feeling though, typically that time coincides with a sobering up of sorts, even if its just the uppers finally trouncing the booze

yeah exactly. or if its booze, that deadening feel when it starts to force you to sleep. we always used to bosh a couple cans of kestrel, really strong horrible lager, to help with the bean comedown

Some reflections having listened to this mix a few times:

1. They are both talking about love in the most part. Lovers not fighters. They're also telling stories, proper artists not novelty acts.

2. Thug is a little faster than Dean, I wouldn't be able to articulate the technicals, and it's not much, probably 10-20 bpms. If I had some cdjs I would consider pitching the one up and the other down and see what happens

3. You could swap the beats for each and each would still work. Makes sense to me that Dean has made beats for rocky.

Seriously the best mix I ever made. Its 1 plus 1 equals 3. They bring out the best in one another and the supporting cast of weeknd and kanny throw in good cameos.

Those on reddit could one of you post into Dean blunt sub please, say its from karlyug

the name 'house of balloons' is inspired by a house share he lived in where the house was really dirty but rather than clean up, they just had loads of nice balloons when girls came round so it looked sexy

20 odd minutes is this penelope freestyle, never would've picked it out as a highlight. That's was what was so good about version and Linebaugh throwing the tunes at me

It's too long to listen to from start to finish, but I like it. I just stick it on, skip to a random bit and let it roll out from there.
