Happy Australia day to those of you in Australia! Though this particular day has the potential of being ruined by racism disguised as patriotism and too many southern cross and 'made in australia' tattoos, I have hope that today will be a good one. Stranger, more amazing things have after all taken place this year...

Next in line for the new HITS mix series is a mix titled Worship the Sun by Steele Bonus. The big guy is pictured above. Steele has put together a fantastic mix exclusively for the HITS blog. It's a real smoker so download it now and listen to it today:


Now Steele Bonus has a pretty snappy blog himself - you can check it out here. It's definitely worth a look as he posts lots of great music from time to time. And if you're in Sydney be sure to keep an ear out for his monthly Wednesday night party Tropical Social Club at the Dug out Bar below the Burdekin. There's no cover charge and you'll hear hot jams that you won't hear played out anywhere else in Sydney, guaranteed. 

2009 AND BEYOND...
