LWE Podcast 107: 2toomanygays

After dedicating many, many hours to judging more than 40 mixes, LWE’s panel of judges has picked our favorite: Congratulations are due to 2toomanygays (Michael Oswell and Samuel Ashton) of London, the winners of our fourth annual podcast competition. Their deep and inspired mix grabbed our attention and earns them two CDs and one vinyl care of !K7. In second place we have Piotr Hamedinger of Poland, who wins two CDs, and in third is Rory Donohue of Ireland, who wins one CD. Our kudos to those who won and many thanks to all who entered. Let’s move on to the podcast.

LWE’s 107th and final podcast of 2011 comes from the hilariously named 2toomanygays of London, the duo of Michael Oswell and Samuel Ashton who have been DJing around the city together for a few years. Their house-flavored mix is imbued with all the depth and grace of two scene veterans, melding rare classics and recent favorites in a manner which left each selection feeling simultaneously fresh and timeless. Theirs was easily the most ambitious mix we received, sliding through 17 tracks in just over 48 minutes while maintaining a naturally entertaining pace. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself putting this on during your New Year’s Eve celebrations, as it will sound as good this year as it will a decade from now. Many thanks to the guys for their mix; make sure to catch them in action if you’re around London.

solid mix!

Henderick AKA Thelonious Funk  on December 28, 2011 at 1:25 PM

Hey guys,

Big congrats to the winners of this competition. Any mix that has STL & DJ Qu you are surely on the right track… I had no time to get one in this year due to the radio shows, but I will surely make sure I get one in for next year.

sounds_echoed  on December 30, 2011 at 9:38 PM

Haha, i love the DJ name. I hope it’s a piss-take on 2manyDJs who are rather crap imho.

Tracklist looks really good. Thanks to LWE for all their efforts in 2011 and look forward to 2012 of excellent music.
