A recording from the 2002 Sugarshack DJ Competition @ Box Office/Faulkner's Bar.
Having won the previous comp 2 years earlier, I didnt make it through this one (beaten by the eventual winner). I was happy that Id played better than when I did actually win though & remember watching old videos of Ali Vs Frazier & coming across the Ali sample from the pre-fight footage. I had hooked a little Yamaha sampler up to the video recorder & edited it so that I could use it to create an intro for the comp.
This was before the days of CDJ1000s in every DJ booth-I remember there was 2 Technics, a little DJM100 CD player & a Pioneer DJM600 mixer. I think my head was pretty much down throughout trying to keep everything tight over 3 decks. I had the same mixer at home so felt totally at home messing with the sampler, effects & 2 copies of records.
Good times ...Oh to be young again! :)
