Campfire Songs by Native Craftworks

Published: Mon Jul 04 2011

After being stuck on pause for a little while, our Monday Mixtape series is back – this time round on Mixcloud.com

This latest entry comes courtesy of Danny from Native Craftworks. When Danny’s not crafting some of the best contemporary-classic footwear known to man, he can be found putting together bloody good mixtapes for your listening enjoyment, like this one… we’ll let him explain:

“The mix is based on a tape I made about 15 years ago for a summer camping trip down to Cornwall. All the tracks bring back good memories. ‘Riverside’ makes me think of driving down country lanes in the hot sun… I can still taste late morning bangers and beans when I hear ‘Sunlight’ and I still get warm, smoky, early evening campfire smells when ‘River’ is playing. The mix has a bit of a soulful folky feel, mostly acoustic, mostly laid back… hope you like it.”
