First a note from me, Texas.
It’s been a tough week for many of us in Hobart; we lost a good friend last Sunday. He was a gentle giant of a man, incredibly talented artistically, funny and kind. I’ll always remember him for sneaking up behind me when I’m mixing and slowing down one deck on purpose and then looking all innocent when I spun around.
Tarsh, I hope you find peace mate. You will be forever missed.
Cam is a newcomer to the DJ scene in Hobart, who has been building his craft playing recently at Cargo. I’ve been after him for a mix for a long while… and I was pleasantly surprised to find this in my inbox on a gloomy Monday. I’ve just included Cam’s words as they are:
“I recorded this mix last Saturday night (29 August) without any real intention or purpose to it – it’s just a selection of tracks I’ve collected over the last year or so that I thought were, well, “nice”. Listening to it later, I thought that while it doesn’t really follow a conventional progression, it does seem to move through a variety of moods and emotions. Of course, I had no idea at the time that around 36 hours later I would learn of the tragic passing of a very good friend to many of us. The timing of the two may well mean that I will always remember the feelings that I, and I expect many others, have felt at this time whenever I listen to this mix or indeed, some of the tracks within it. Here it is for others to enjoy if they so please.
This is by no means a ‘sad’ mix and it is fitting that all of the memories and experiences I had with Tarsh were good times. By coincidence, the last track on this mix is quite fitting… for the good times, Tarsh – we will all remember.”
