Have to say that Marcus, Kev and J.P have excelled themselves this week on here. All three of their retrospective mixes have been out of the top drawer and won't be leaving my phone's music folder for a very long time. Thanks for the trips down memory lane chaps.

James Lavelle has been consistently awful over the years.

This. Saw Lavelle at Ultra @ winter music conference in Miami about 10 years ago, and he was utterly shocking. I had to wait for sasha and john, so was trapped in a horrific basketball arena with a load of 18 year old yanks with glow sticks. Awful.

Track list looks good, will give it a whirl

AC/DC at The O2 a few years ago.

Electronic wise - Daft Punk at Hyde Park.

Both tremenballs.

being the old fucker that i am i saw daft punk at the astoria in 1996.

orbital at the allly pally mount universe nye 1996 was a rum do.

but nothing beats lilo thomas at the hammesmith odeon 1986...except perhaps everything, everything everything .

i remember being at some do, fuck knows where, waiting for kraftwerk who hadnt played in the uk for about a thousand years...and being bored shitless...1997/8....mount universe/creamfields???

armand van heldon at the battersea power station was terrrible in about 97, he played the' funk phenomina 'for 2 and three quarter hours.

Didnt Kraftwerk play Tribal Gathering at Luton Hoo in 1996? Amazed theres been no other festivals there, its just as good as Knebworth IMO

Yes I was there, but it was 1997 - didn't listen to much of kraftwerk to be honest, you could hardly get in the tent.

Great festival though, sasha and john b2b, blue amazon live, orbital, daft punk, way out west, fluke, garnier etc.

Most of my mates ended up in the medical tent though, it was like Vietnam in there...

Must admit John Paul the bleepy section nearly lost me (as per Shaun's thoughts) but then you brought it back mate and there's some fucking superb music on this one.  Good work, will be giving it another go next week on the train.

Cheers 'Odgefather glad you enjoyed it. I'll stay away from bleeps next time... smile

Sounds like John saw the thread on Renaissance anniversary! Great commentary at the start from Sir John... … 9-09-2014/

Wow - cheers for the in-depth feedback Strudders, much appreciated!

The vocal track is Niconé & Sascha Braemer feat Limon - Tell Me, and the one at 1 hr 21 is probably one of my favourites tracks this year so far - Uner - undisclosed.

I appreciate not everyone is into the deeper stuff, but my tastes have mellowed a bit with old age! Good to bang it out a bit at the end too though! smile

Cheers again for the comments, nice one, and glad you enjoyed it. It's good to know some people do listen to my mixes apart from me!

I heard it for the first time around the year 2000. I'm so sorry…

Yeah, didn't hear it until about 98, in JPs house if I remember correctly. Fell in love with CD2 straight away.

Yes mate, I think it was at my house - you introduced me to dj shadow and hardkiss, so I guess we're even!

Like many other people, I was into hardcore when it came out, so going to Bowlers and listening to Sy, Slipmatt etc. I went round my mates house one night and he had bought a new album, which he said was the best mix he'd ever heard.

I took one look at it and thought - firstly why is it on cd (we only listened to bootleg mixes on tape) and secondly why is he listening to pop music (it had m-people on it)

I generally took the piss out of him, but he sat me down, put cd1 on very loud and said "just listen". When "song of life" finally kicked in, that was pretty much it for me.

Haven't looked back since...

Nope, afraid not. I am here for prog credentials only...

It was heavy, I'll give you that. Only one arrest, so did quite well really...

A new one from me, 2 hours of 'summer drops' to warm your cockles on this cold summers day...

Hope you enjoy, any comments / feedback welcome (Hodgy!)

Cheers, JP
