Classic Mixes: Garnier vs Mills “Expect the Unexpected” (2004)

I still remember someone giving me some of these mixes ages ago on a couple of CD-R’s. I was a very young but hungry DJ. I was extremely open minded and already taking the identity of a DJ who wants to play many styles in one set… However, in the …

Classic Mixes: Massive Attack “Essential Mix on BBC” (1994)

Looking back on the early 90’s you can really appreciate how glorious a period it was: not only was in the pinnacle of hip-hop and r&b but also trip-hop, acid jazz, drum & bass and amazing house music too. So, this one is not quite twenty just yet, a 19 year …

Classic Mixes: DJ Shadow & DJ Krush “Mo’ Wax Tour 1994″

One for the history books!!! 20 year old classic mix from 1-9-9-4… We love live sets from back in the day because we know there is no “cheating” involved. More focus on the music itself, programming and general vibe and a little bit less of technical prowess. Amazing lost session …
