Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.
Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the fifth of quite a few to come!
Lords of Acid: I Sit on Acid (Remix)
DHS: House of God (DHS)
Bigod 20: On the Run (Turbo Techno)
Stabbing Westward and Wink: Torn Apart
Gravity Kills: Guilty (Roli Mosimann)
My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: After the Flesh
The second of my old collection of mix sessions that I’m posting. A little longer than the last one, and a little more pop-y. There actually was a ‘v1’ of this mix, but it had a few slight flaws that I wanted to fix, and I ended up choosing a slightly different set of tracks to use (though, I may have simply introduced new flaws…so it goes). Hence, ‘v2’.
Faithless ‘Salva Mea’
Transister ‘Head (Hot Tracks)’
Dee-Lite ‘Groove is in the Heart (Van Helden ’99)’
Madonna ‘Music (Deep Dish Dot Com)’
Sarah McLachlan ‘Possession (Rabbit in the Moon)’
DJ Icey ‘This is How My Drummer Drums’
The Crystal Method ‘Busy Child’
Wink ‘Higher State of Consciousness (Itty Bitty Boozy Woozy/vs. Public Enemy)’
This mix was mixed ‘live’ — running a Pioneer dual CD mixer directly into my computer and recording straight to .mp3 — and has had no post-mix editing done in the computer. As such, it’s not flawless, but it’s not bad, either, if I do say so myself.
