Thought you guys would enjoy this if you haven't read it. It's oakenfold talking about this mix in his authorised biography:

'It was the hardest mix to complete,' says Paul, 'because of the arrangement, the keys, mixing in a lot of music that had no beat. It took months. The choice of tracks took three or four months, then I did a lot of research to find out what would work, keywise, from film music, that had the emotion and feeling I wanted to put across. I did that at the piano. Usually you are mixing beats, but this was all about key, mixing ambience, adding spoken word. A lot of it is in minor keys because it's more emotional. I mixed it all to a click track, then took that out when the mix was done. It was slow, hard work. I was on the verge of giving up at one point; I thought "Fuck this, this is a lot of work ... why don't I just do a DJ mix?" But Radio One giving us a two-hour slot was a big deal, and to be creative, with no boundaries, was a really big deal, so that's why I wanted to take it to the next level. I was just trying to tell a story. The music was cutting-edge, and I've always thought that [film] score would work with my style of trance music. I think it really opened the doors for a lot of people, because it took the underground sound and played it on mainstream radio. Oakenfold fans weren't expecting to hear it; they were expecting to hear melodic trance, and I just completely banged it. Psychedelic trance was something that I was really into, and I thought it gave me a good vehicle to showcase what I can do.'

The mix was bootlegged heavily. Liverpool club Cream pressed up a large quantity of promo CDs. 'Typical Scousers!' laughs Paul when referring to the club where he was soon to shine. You get the feeling he may have had some hand in the bootlegs himself. 'They made shitloads of money out of it,' he says. 'I wasn't worried about the money – I wanted it out there. I thought it was a sound that people had never heard before; that was the idea, to do something new, fresh, and different.'

Tapes this live, then a few years later came across a bootleg cd, which said goa mix, it was the original full mix that he had done on the radio , not to be confused with the later remixed version on sale on amazon , trully amazing mix , this and oakenfold resident ten years , are pretty dam special , pity he went over ground and did cheese
