DJ Riko produces a Christmas Mix every year, and it’s a tradition of his that he shares. I’m happy he does, because his mixes are a nice twist on what’s played in store and on the radio. If you’re looking for an alternative to traditional music (which, as a bonus, includes a backbeat), try some of his Merry Mixmases. I think my fave is still 2005’s, but there’s good stuff there, along with some stand-alones of people’s favourite bits (like the 12 Days of Mixmas).
