One beautiful evening, myself and a good friend sat down with a bottle of wine and a selection of music we loved. She played me all of about 1 minute of one song and I said right there and then, I have to get a mix from these people.
A few weeks down the line and here we have it, the 11th Hidden Treasure installation comes from a production outfit who go by the name of Virgin Minds.
