This show was 96th in the global club chart.
This is a follow-up to my "Cocaine and Acid Wash" retro mix from a while back. It's a very club-oriented mix - NOT clean; there's definitely some foul language here and there. It was mixed manually from vinyl records and features some INCREDIBLY rare remixes.
This is dedicated to the friends with whom I hung out during my first year in the DJ industry: my DJ mentor Dave, Gerard, Dusty, Kelly, and Christina. Every track reminds me of that precious late-80s era in which my musical horizons were expanding. It was a great time.
The mix opens with "Housequake," which reminds me of Gerard and Dave in particular. (I can still hear Gerard yelling, "Bullshit!") It moves on to a treasure chest of classics: "Relax." "Fascinated." "Jungle Love." "Behind the Wheel." "Blue Monday." The sound quality isn't perfect at times (I'm getting a better copy of that great "Cold Hearted" remix!), but it's all genuine.
