Mix Of The Day

Classic Mixes: Garnier vs Mills “Expect the Unexpected”


Someone gave me this mix 3 years ago and I found it in my stuff last week so before I lost it for another couple years I thought I’d share it with you guys.

This is 80 minutes of pure bliss from two Techno Pioneers: ze frenchman Laurent Garnier and Detroit’s Jeff Mills. There are lots of gems in here; funk, disco, hiphop. Hell, it almost sounds like one of my pods. Peep the crazy Portishead cover, second track of the mix…
