Exuding a sunny disco-inspired temperament, this is a Summertime favorite of mine. It captures the sumptuous mid-90s creations of the likes of Moodyman, Carl Craig, Masters At Work, Theo Parrish, and Rob Mello. Many speculated that the title inferred my retirement as a DJ. Maybe it was simply a cheeky Simpsons reference… Whichever the case, it’s here remastered for everyone to revisit and enjoy.

Being here in San Francisco has inspired me to post this live set, recorded at the STOMPY party back in February of 2000.  I believe it was at the Barneveld space which had a nice warehouse feel with a delectable sound system.  These parties have a certain nostalgia for me, as it was my first SF gig in ’95 back when it was called Stompy Stomp.  This recording is extra special!  Aside from being raw and unedited, I challenge you to figure out why…

Enjoy!  And thanks to the entire STOMPY crew, both past and present!!

This is the mix that started it all.  1991/92 in all it’s glory.  The rave scene was just emerging in Chicago, the music was fresh and new, and the sense of Midwest community was strong.  Here we have everything from Jam ‘n’ Spoon to Future Sound Of London to (my personal favorite) Sven Van Hees.  Only 200 cassettes were produced, but it reached many a raver near and far.  Take a trip back to the early tribal/trance sound in all its remastered glory!
