About the show

Playing tracks by

Sounds From The Ground, Lemn, Bent, Big Muff, Ute and more.

Bent: I Love My Man ((Lazyboy's Anyone for tennis mix) -- Zeitgeist Tune! That's the theme of this collection, the first BeatConscious show to be aired on mmRadio in December 2001 … how it caught the spirit of the time, over in Downtempoland.

Giddy with the prospect of connecting with other downtempo fans, I wanted to create a show focused on the high points, as I then understood them: performers like Bent, Big Muff, K&D remixing Aphrodelics, Cujo, Bullitnuts, Heights of Abraham and others who were releasing gems in the mid- to late-90s and early 2000s.

Heights of Abraham was my special interest, the sound that got me hooked, back in the mid-90s before I knew there was such a category as downtempo (a story told in more detail here: http://www.beatconscious.org/history.htm) … this December 2001 mix is the one that advertised my allegiance to this particular group and to this emblematic downtempo sound.
