Playing tracks by
Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Tom Tom Club, Sabrina, Tiga & Zyntherius, Stardust and more.
This mix still circulates on the net and can be found as 'Stuart's Awesome Bootleg Mix', 'Rhodes54 Awesome Bootleg Mix' or simply 'The Awesome Bootleg Mix'.
I got the idea for this mix in 2002. A one time project: Making the ultimate bootleg mix. It ended up working on it for more than 120 hours because time stretching/pitching was not such a simple job as it is nowadays and a lot had to be done 'offline'. The result: a musical melting-pot going from the 60's til the early 00's, using 96 tracks.
I will never forget the day that I got a phonecall from the mastermixer himself, Ben Liebrand, that he was impressed by the mix and he had been playing this non-stop for a few weeks in his car. He wanted this mix to be broadcasted in his show 'In The Mix' on Radio Veronica. That was a huge honor for me.
