Guest Mix: La Memoria by Dijon

La Memoria Dijon

Right…I’ve been waiting for some decent weather before unleashing this and it looks like today’s the day. Kicking off an ongoing series of mixes that contain more than a whiff of Ambre Solaire, this one is by Dijon and it’s bloody beautiful.

Dijon is a long-term record collector (25 years and counting), occasional/retired DJ and now just enjoys “putting together the odd mix”. This one was inspired by a trip to a certain island, and weaves together mostly-instrumental album tracks (and one or two obscure B sides) to create a lovely island vibe.

The origins of the Dijon name are deliciously Balearic, by the way. In his own words:

I played at an after-party years ago and put on ‘Josephine.’ This guy comes up, 

“Wot vurshon’s that mate, fackin’ mustaard”

“La Francaise”

“Oooh, o’wight, it’s fackin’ dijon then…caaant!”
