I have to say, this is the best mix I've heard on this board for a long, long time.

Stellar work.

Proper prog? Like prog used to be? We need IDs people!!!

It was mate, driving beats, intelligent synths - the lot. I thought I was dreaming... I do have video clips, so someone might be able to ID them.

How were the toilets?

Shocking.

Massive queue, and some blocked urinals. I might as well have just pissed on the floor.

Amusingly, one chap came in to clean his t-shirt as someone puked down his back.

Stay classy, Shoreditch.

Most importantly though – I got a signal in there.

And free wi-fi.

Brilliant night, stunning music John. There were a couple of tracks at 11pm that blew me away – no idea what they were, but proper driving, percussive prog.

I love the smaller venues, and the mid-week thing – much better atmosphere.

Good to meet Ed Smallman finally, and see the rest of the usual crew.

Top stuff.

Agreed! Now then colly, who's your doppelgänger? Damien lewis in homeland episodes with shaved head?

Lads I have to say the quality thus far has been very good indeed.  Been going through in order of posting...
Millsy already blown smoke up your poopa, ace mix
Japes I've now listened to all of yours fella and it's probably your best set in terms of programming that you've done (I dug out an old biotech mix of yours last year.... You've come a fair way since those CDs!)
Smash - only a third through yours but it's right up my street, great track selection... Mix into wildstyle groove is fucking LUSH.  the rest of it will be on the car today and hope to finish it.

Then I'll be on to Zacksters where I have to say the tracklist looks very interesting... Looking forward to it.

Good work gents

Cheers matey. Yeah, the old biotech series was a bit rough when I listen back, Tekkers have improved since then!

Big love to everyone who has participated, they're all pretty spesh but I agree zackster has been the surprise entry for me, v.nice.

And most recently one frequent poster on this board who has since now departed (the board, not life) gave me a bit of Clare Balding abuse.

I was mortified by Jamie Oliver.  Fucking mug on him. 
Clare balding I'll take any day of the week, smashing looking fella with a lovely hair-do.

When I first heard it i thought the vocal sample was taken from 'playing with the voices in Germany', which is also a joe t.vanneli track.

Good point, back to the good old days of heaven.

Being an old timer myself, the long term memory is fading...

I checked the xoyo website, nothing booked for that night so it's a possibility.

Strange it's on a Thursday, aren't they normally only Thursday before a bank holiday?

I've got a copy of sasha's rider. nothing exciting on it, just what equipment he wants.

And a mountain of finest Colombian of course...

Coffee, obviously.

you can't file Flaming June with Veracocha

I'd have to agree with this. I was never a fan, but heard Uncle John drop FJ in the Gardening Club once to a thunderous reception. It did the business when it counted.

Absolutely. You can also add Robert miles 'children', paul van dyk 'for an angel', binary finary, three drives on vinyl, energy 52 and faithless 'insomnia' to the list of tunes that "sounded amazing at the time, but were ruined by being used in match of the day highlights sequences."

Solarstone - Seven Cities. Maybe deemed credible as it was on Hooj but it was definitely cheese. Maybe on Lost Language first?

The V-One's Living Cities Remix for me, had a bit more grunt and I loved the bassline on it

........yeh it was on Lost Language I think, have a copy on vinyl in the loft somewhere

The ambient/beatless version of this gives me proper goosebumps, due to hearing it a lot at cafe mambo at sunset on an Ibiza trip years ago
