I wanted to make a mix CD that was typical of the DJ sets I was playing at the time, and put this mix together early in 2004. Wanting to include as many styles as possible, a lot of tracks had to be edited post-mix to squeeze the mix onto a CD, which means this mix moves along pretty swiftly. Massive mail-outs of this CD were probably key in me being booked to play at the Big Chill festival in 2004. This one is strong on Hip Hop but it also has elements of Dance-hall, Funk, Dub, Soul and Breaks.
No computers, just a 4-track & effects mixed down live.
