In 1992 I started a little downtempo weekly in San Francisco with Mark Farina, Patty Smith, Eric Kalabacos, and Erik Ross. We called it Jazzid Up!, but quickly became known as Mushroom Jazz because of Mark's mix series. For the three year life of the weekly, I was in DJ heaven as one of the residents — playing my favorite music alongside my favorite DJs. This is a recording from one of the Monday nights. I remember it was the week I bought the debut album from seminal Austrian duo Kruder & Dorfmeister. A week earlier DJ Shadow released In/Flux on Mo Wax. To me, this was a pinnacle of an era. Enjoy!
