Recorded back in July 2002 and one of the first mix CDs I ever made (before that it was all about C90 tapes!). I sent this mix to iDJ and was over the moon when I saw that I'd won their Readers' Mixes competition. They wrote, "Wow, what a mix. Covering everything from Chi-town bleepery yo Midlands deepery, and from big vocals to West Coast laziness, Strakes' mix encompasses just about everything that's vibrant about house music 2002-style. As such it's a holy grail of mixes - one that'd keep the spotters, the ladies and the E-heads happy all at once."
