An early 4AD mix (1982-1991) with two "sides", uptempo and ambient. I'm celebrating 20 years of DJing, and the first half of the mix brings memories of a party dedicated to British label 4AD I organized in 1992 at Maldoror bar, Porto. The second half reflects the classical side of the label, one of my favorites from the 1980s. At the time, 4AD was characterized by a pioneering attitude (the name derives from "1980 Forward"), spacious production, and attention to detail in all aspects of its releases - particularly the design, often by 23 Envelope / v23.
