Smooth ‘n Rough: Summer ’99

This is a mix I recorded some time in the Summer of ’99. Some of it’s a bit speedy, as many of my mixes at the time were. I reckon that’s an inevitable consequence of mixing with pitched decks (when you increase the range to +/-16). It was also pretty crucial to teaching me how to mix stuff from different genres together. Anyway… I really dig this mix, having not heard it for a good few years. Lots of solid Chicago house and techno. Clocks in at just under an hour.

2020 note: all mixes taken down for now to re-post at higher bitrate on Mixcloud in due course. If you’re at all keen for me to do this, please let me know and I will try and get anything specific you want to hear moved over ASAP.
