30 YEARS OF ACID HOUSE, A 4-HOUR MIX BY MARK DEVLIN, ON DESTINY 105, SATURDAY 30TH DECEMBER 2017

It’s now 30 years since the establishment of the Acid House scene in the UK, a movement that changed the face of dance music and culture generally from that point on. I’m resisting the temptation towards any social commentary on this one, instead letting the music do the talking with a four-hour mix of some of the most influential records of those heady and captivating days of 1987 and ’88.

Listen to “30 Years of Acid House on Destiny 105, 30/12/17 – complete 4-hour mix” on Spreaker.

NEW YEAR’S EVE 2016 – FOUR HOURS OF SOULFUL, UPLIFTING HOUSE ON DESTINY 105

A year ago today I had a blast, delivering four hours of soulful, uplifting house and some disco revivals on the radio – very much an homage to Danny Rampling’s wonderful Love Groove Dance Party back in the day. It’s one of the finest shows I’ve done, in my opinion. Here it is again.

Tonight, I’ll be dropping a garage selection for the big NYE bash at Cameo in Bournemouth alongside the likes of Pied Piper, Wideboys and many, many others.

MUSICAL TRUTH VOL. 2 – SOON COME

It’s an exciting day for an author when that first proof copy of a new book arrives! Musical Truth 2 isn’t as much of a doorstop as Volume 1, but still packs a fairly substantial 120,000 words. It should be fully available in printed and Kindle versions in about another three weeks.
