Sadly, 500MH has never been to Glastonbury and 2013 will be no exception (though not being the biggest Mumford & Sons fans, we might get over it quicker than usual). Someone who definitely has been, however, is friend-of-the-blog Michael Cook.
As part of the negotiations to host his Sun Haze Blues mix, we also acquired this historical 3-hour document of a morning set that he played in the Guardian Lounge back in 2009. Kicking-off fashionably early, Mr C weaves an appropriately horizontal mix for the listening pleasure of hungover/still-drunk revelers.
In his own words: “Up at 6.30am, on my 3rd day at Glastonbury…could’ve been disastrous but I think it went pretty well, some of my favourite mellow tunes over breakfast in a lovely lounge tent”.
The eagle-eyed may spot an unmarked green flask in front of the turntable, the contents of which are rumoured to have influenced the direction of the mix. Quite what was in there remains a closely guarded professional secret, though 500MH has seen unofficial laboratory reports suggesting Hapsburg Absinthe & fresh (natural) lemonade.
Mr Cook was unavailable for comment…
