When Ashley Outrageous approached us with the idea of creating a Valentine mix, as part of our exclusive mixtape series, we didn’t need asking twice. Not only because Ashley is one of the very nicest people and most hard-working people we know, thus making the whole process a total joy. But more because she has got incredible musical knowledge and so the selection was always going to be massive.
And so it was, but perhaps even bigger than we thought. With DJ Spintelect pulling it all together, The Kissing Game mixtape, even if we do say so ourselves, is incredible. Full of of R’n’B jams from the late 1990s and early 2000s it is a throwback set that, like a perfect kiss, leaves you wanting more.
But we shouldn’t be surprised. Because like we said, Ashley Outrageous is one of the key arbiters of musical taste in the hip-hop world these days. She is one of those people with an ability to use their own passion, breadth of knowledge, enthusiasm and of course writing talent to spread the good word to an ever increasing audience of eager consumers. That is why she is making a successful business out of what she does best, simply knowing, sharing and loving music. That’s an approach right up our street. So we know when working with Ashley Outrageous that every single time it’s all love, and then some.
