Here we go boys and girls. We begin our journey once again, venturing into the sounds that fueled the land of rave out here in the Midwest back in the early 90s. As I write this I am recalling the countless hours of driving to get to the remotest warehouses, barns, farms and fields, being ever so thankful for the mix tape. It has provided the soundtrack for so many of us along our road trips in life.  This mix presents US and continental European electronica, but its focus is firmly on the new sound of the time – UK “progressive house” (there, I said it).  I sometimes can’t help but cringe when I hear mixes from this era, but alas they do bring back some unforgettable memories.  So may this give you a chuckle or two as you imagine where you were, who you were with, and most importantly what you were wearing back in 1993.  Go there…and enjoy!

    I had this tape! It was ruined in a flood. Glad to have it back.

    Don’t cringe, this is one of the most seamless mixes I ever heard, one of my favorite, and got me through many, many, a dark night.

    This tape was a hey-day for me. Flawless mixing. Very soft touch on the vinyl. All the hits were here and none were too overwhelming. I can tell you 15 stories about where I was in my car and what was happening while this tape was playing. Thank you!

    Listned to this tape a lot back in the 90s in Acapulco. Made great beach music.
