The mental side of running the marathon is harder than the physical side.

Most people can train themselves into marathon shape (if they so desire) but not everyone can cope when your body shuts down at 17 miles and you have to get in the trenches and will yourself over the line 9.2 miles later.

Serious mental minerals required.

not to mention being bored shitless.

agree with swimming too. Unless you're a pensioner or work as a lifeguard, there's no need. Long distance endurance in all its forms holds no appeal to me although I tip my hat to the best in the business at rowing, cycling, swimming, running as the times they achieve are quite staggering. And no Ed, that doesn't mean you.

Your next mix better be boss Millsy.

That's all I'm saying.

I'll put Chariots of Fire on it just for you.

Sorry Ed but running is so fucking dull. Plod, plod, plod. Much better ways to stay fit and not have the body of a pre pubescent Zola Budd as the end result.

I have no idea who they are

This matters not

While compiling the 20th anniversary edition of "dubnobass..." this is apparently some of the music on DATs, floppy discs and tapes that never made the official release...

Yes, you're all correct here, it is licensing issues spread across a number of points, but mainly period and territories.

Back in the day of physical your license period usually ran for 2 - 5 years, after that they reverted back to the licensor / owner. As manufacturer of the comp' you didn't mind this because even after just two years the likelihood of getting any major racking space in record stores was nominal, your sales period was effectively done since they'd moved on to more current product. Consequently, a lot of those classic comps did go out of license very quickly.

Unless you had any 'sub' deals in place you also only needed to license for the UK during the days of physical, which you'd then export to the rest of the world. To achieve the same thing on digital you now have to own the track you're licensing for the world since iTunes (and all other DMS) are broken down territory by territory. Very often labels don't own tracks for the entire world, especially if they've been a bit of a hit and the track has picked up deals in different territories. It can be very frustrating (I had countless conversations with really pissed off DJs trying to explain why we couldn't use certain key tracks over the years) and makes the modern day licensing process more complicated still.

Finally, yeah, Ren Vol. 1 got re-issued on its 10th anniversary because there was huge demand. Distributors around the world were repeatedly asking for it so Ren knew the effort and expense of re-licensing would be worth it. Very few back dated comps justified such efforts then, let alone now in an even smaller market.

Yeah, I'm just going to stick all my Ren stuff on Soundcloud in glorious WAV.

Millsy I had a good 2 or 3 listens to this on my biz trip over the last week....v well put together but probably missing one or two signature bits that made your previous mixes outstanding (eg your wang chung one)... there, said it!

Cheers Jules. Your honest feedback will make me stronger. Thanks for giving it a listen chief.
