The Good Mix
Written by Max Olijnyk — 27th August 2014

When we were planning the launch party for our shop, we were like, ‘Maybe we should get a DJ,’ then someone said, ‘We’ll need to hire a PA then,’ then someone said, ‘Should we get a smoke machine as well?’

Then we thought about it and realised we’re a writing agency here at The Good Copy, not a DJ agency. So we all chose eight songs we like and sent a list to Pork Chop. Using sleight of hand and a computer program, he put this mix together. We played it through our boom box on the launch night and it went down a treat.
