All the mixes have been in for a while and I’ve listened a few times to each of the 43 remix entries. With such a high standard and with the wide variety of mixes submitted and Its been very tough to pick one winner. For a while I was thinking about awarding points to each mix for; technical skill, imagination, feel etc.. but it quickly became unmanageable in the end I simply went for the mix which moved me the most. 

That mix is Keith Jafrate’s epic ‘Winter Garden Mix’.

Keith’s 10 minute mix sounds to me like an unhurried wordless radio drama, It does it’s thing by stealth and too me it’s really magical. Extra bonus points for using the call of a Magpie (my bird of 09) – Congratulations Keith, It’s truly beautiful! 

Thank you to all who took the time to enter and a very big thanks to Highpoint Lowlife Records who have been hosting all the files.
