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...

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

Done a few weddings, mostly my clubbing mates. In fact, I djed at Wrongun's who posts on here...

I usually Manage to get a decent mix of classic prog and eighties nu wave and electro, combined with some of the usual cheese for the brides.

As long as you have a late license  you can really start banging it out when the kids / grandparents are tucked up in bed.

Make sure you have a good collection of oasis and shit like that for when everyone is wankered...

no idea what they were, but proper driving, percussive prog.

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.
