BBC6 MUSIC have been supporting various projects this month.
4th June Gideon Coe's show featured DATA70's "Hey Summer", from the forthcoming "SPACE LOOPS: The Complete Sessions" compilation CD (although the evidence suggests this was played off vinyl...at the wrong speed!)
12th June Gideon Coe again, this time dropping WNCL "What's Going On (Stuff Is Happening)" from the in-your-shops-now COLLISION/DETECTION box set CD on the Front and Follow label.
19th June Lauren Laverne bigging up the aforementioned DATA 70 release and playing "The Golden Age of Space Travel"
20th June ...Mr. Coe played more from the DATA 70 album ("Into The Outside" and "Here 'Tis") in his mid-summer show, where he attempted to cram in as many "under 2 minutes" records into one show as possible
God bless Auntie Beeb...

From THE DAILY STREET...
This month, West Norwood Cassette Library graces our mixtape series, providing us with a vinyl only homage to the legendary Relief Records ... Taking the opportunity to display his love for Relief Records, WNCL has compiled this 22 track vinyl only mix that showcases his personal favourites from the back catalogue.
The mix itself gets a little loose in places, but that’s partly expected these days whenever someone does a vinyl mix and has no digital mixing aids. In the words of WNCL himself, it’s a “slightly bumpy, warts and all approach”. In an age where people often submit mixes made in Ableton so that they are technically perfect, it’s refreshing to occasionally ‘hear’ someone mixing.
01. Green Velvet – Preacher Man (Intro)
02. Paul Johnson – Soft Spot
03. Joe Lewis – I Can’t Get (Get, Get)
04. DJ Sneak – Flip It
05. Trackhead Steve – Grunt
06. Louis Bell – Cross Over
07. Lester Fitzpatrick – Mental Hardware
08. Markey – Transmission
09. Mike Pierce – Assembly Line
10. Random Access DJ Tools Vol.IV – Muzik Box (Parts 1 and 2)
11. Bidi – Rock
12. L.A. Williams – Put Me In A Groove
13. Joe Lewis – House Beat ’95
14. Willpower – Mo Sax
15. Lester Fitzpatrick – Bird Song
16. DJ Rush – Playin’ Kinda Rough
17. Green Velvet – Untitled (aka Fake and Phoney)
18. Jellybean – Twighlight Dome Pt. 2
19. GU – Slam’em Mutha’s
20. Random Access DJ Tools Vol.II – Action
21. Vincent Floyd – E-Flat Groove
22. Paul Johnson – Y’all Stole Them Dances
