AVA MIX 019: Timmy Stewart’s 10 Year Mix

Hailed by many as “The Godfather of the Belfast Scene”, Extended Play label-boss Timmy Stewart has curated a celebratory mix which journeys through 10 years of AVA.

“I’ve played every year of AVA to date, and nearly every single stage at the festival, as well as various guest outings across the UK, so to say I’ve had ring side seats across the last decade is prob a bit of an understatement and as a result made creating this mix an enjoyable recap.

Opening with a SDC intro seemed a bit of a no brainer, as he makes his return to the festival this year. It was then important to cover a cross section of international acts that AVA have managed to entice to these shores, alongside Irish mainstays who hold their own. Reflected in the mix by the likes of Daniel Avery, Helena Hauff, Len Faki, Midland and more sitting comfortably alongside Sunil Sharpe, Saoirse, Cromby & Matheson.

Across the 100mins, the mix takes in a lot of shades of electronic music with tracks released decades ago as well as music released less than a month ago. It represents a snapshot of just some of the music you can expect to hear at the festival from artists spanning the globe. Even featuring a collaboration I made with a singer I met through an AVA production programme as well as tracks from some of my favourite panellists, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, Jeff Mills & Larry Heard, who had stories for days.

Finally I had to get some Orbital in there after seeing them perform Chime live in Printworks for AVA, which was a proper goosebump moment for me considering it was one of the first 12”s I bought as an enthusiastic teenager nearly 3 decades ago.”

Happy 10th Birthday AVA! – Timmy Stewart
