Marathon Mix 1 by Ross - Part Time Heroes

It is with massive amounts of pleasure and pride that I present the inaugural run like 'elle Marathon Mix! Easing us in to the training schedule is a soulful mix by one of the nicest men in music, the first featured DJ is Ross Wakefield - one half of production duo Part Time Heroes.

In true Part Time Hero style Ross has expertly combined soul, disco and a touch of dub to create the perfect soundtrack to your jog. This is sure to get your toe tapping and kick-start the hot stepping.

Part Time Heroes have remixed a host of artists for labels including Tru Thoughts, Compost, First Word and Hospital Records, and have DJ'd and played live around the UK as well as throughout Europe and the Far East. Following their 2008 LP, the Part Time Heroes are currently working on the hotly anticipated follow-up, due to drop in September this year.

You can catch them at the festivals this summer, and if you can't wait that long (you shouldn't), then I highly recommend subscribing to their internationally revered monthly music podcasts. The Hideout Sessions champion new music spanning funk to dubstep with a few surprises in between, and it makes for two hours of hilarious listening.

Please download, listen and enjoy! My only request is that you make a voluntary donation to my marathon sponsorship appeal. Even if it's only a £ or two, it is much appreciated and will help me reach my goal of raising £3,000 for Wateraid - a very worthy cause.
