These old mixes are always fun to revisit because I can reminisce on my lack of cover design skills, which perfectly complimented my lack of DJ skills at the time. Another misguided attempt to “standing out” as a DJ in a saturated market, I attempted to record a mix that was half drum and bass and half house/techno to showcase my supposed versatility. Unfortunately back in those days playing multiple genres was still frowned upon, so the mix wasn’t well received when I tried handing it out. Gotta learn somehow though, right?

Both mixes on here are honestly way too aggressive for my current tastes. I had just figured out how to double drop tracks together and I milked the technique to death on the drum and bass mix. Plus everything was pitched up to get more tracks to fit within each 40 minute session.

It’s like going back thru old high school yearbook photos…you hate them, but still can’t resist taking a peak at times. Anyway hindsight is 20/20
