November 2003. Done for Eddy Temple-Morris' XFM London show "The Remix". The sound of me throwing everything into the pot. Half an hour of full-on editing madness with The Pink Floyd, Chicago, Primal Scream, Finitribe, Dave & Ansel Collins, Area Code 615 and more. Of course, it went straight over everyone's heads...
The version here isn't the one that went out on air - it's an earlier edit that was a bit too long for the strict 30 minute radio slot - but I prefer it, as it gives the Liberty X section more room (which happens to be one of my favourite parts) as well as a few other differences. Again, my love of audio buffoonery was put to use, with sections from a Python album (note the fart noise used to cover a tricky edit in 'Bootylicious'), a 1960s Decca stereo demonstration record (not the usual 'Journey Into Stereo Sound' though), an almost ironic sample of legendary Human League producer Martin Rushent, and a genuine tape 'disaster' as a way out of the increasing disco infern
