Here we have Star from 1995, the third mix tape from a series of four (the other three being Eve ryd ayl if e, The Golden Age, and A La Peanut Budder Sandwiches).  A lot of mixes were either on 60 or 90 minute cassettes before this era, but some of us decided to super-size it and give the boys n girls 100.  And in those extra minutes I’ve squeezed in some favorites (I just noticed that both sides end with Carl Craig and Masters at Work productions!).  So enjoy the extra 10 minutes of star dusted (and remastered) musics.

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!

Here is the mid-tempo Sunshower mix with original artwork.  And yes, the title was indeed inspired by Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band.  I believe I did this one in Colette’s basement in Chicago.  This was an exercise in keeping the pace at a casual jaunt, using rich textures, colorful instrumentation, and having a ‘Sunday afternoon in the park’ mood.  It’s one of those projects I felt turned out quite well from start to finish.  So enjoy a little Sunshower one sunny afternoon – bask yourself in its rays, soak it up, drink it in…Enjoy!

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 its tribal/trance glory. The rave scene was just emerging in Chicago, the sound was fresh and new, and the sense of community was strong all across the Midwest. Only 200 cassettes were produced, but it somehow reached many a raver near and far. I owe much to my time on the West Coast for the music and inspiration on here. This wouldn’t exist without the help of Sasha, Barry Weaver, Mark E Quark, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina and Josh Werner for recommending/supplying many of these musical gems!

Here is a mix from 1996 made in honor of our Material party at Shelter.  The original line-up consisted of residents Josh Werner, Scott Song and myself, with promoters Erick Urenn and Colette. I left Chicago in 1995, but the night continued on having a healthy lifespan with many other resident DJs, migrating to various other clubs, remaining a mainstay in Chicago for many years. This mix is an homage to those good times at Shelter which we will always think of fondly… Enjoy!
