Ian Blevins – Wasted Heroes mix

A few weeks ago one of my favourite clothing labels asked me to do a mix and asked a few questions. They are both up online now to check out.

Do go and check out the shop as well. The t shirts and jumpers I can vouch for as they seem to be taking an ever more increasing percentage of my cupboard & drawers up.

For the last 4 year or so I have been a resident for Future Disco here on the island at Space. This year is no different and have been holding down the Premier Etage all summer again and this Tuesday I’ll be making my Future Disco debut on the Sunset Terrace.

They’ve asked me a few questions about various topics and will be sending over a brief mix for the Radio show as well. In the mean time here’s me answering questions.
