6Mixes can be a bit of a mixed bag but at their best they are a mix of influences, admiration and a personal musical history. Listening to the High Contrast Mix (not someone I had heard of before) I was struck by the familiarity of his choices and his reasoning for choosing his music.
Although it lost me towards the end I was really curious who this person was, finding out that it wasn't just a 6Music punter I had a Google and came up with a bio which says that actually we not that different. Except that he's more my brother's age and he's a drum and bass producer and I'm an IT consultant, natch.
Still I found it weird that we had these parallel journeys through a Welsh childhood with our musical discoveries.
