Genius comeback masterstroke from GU, pick one of the worst dj's of all time. I'm still traumatised from hearing his train wrecking at Ultra 10 years ago.

What's next, Paris Hilton: Disneyland?

many thanks both, mucho appreciated.

New mix to end the summer, some cracking new tunes from prog legends Quivver and Blue Amazon, and amazing tracks from my favourite producer of the moment Bog. Enjoy...

They're all amazing to be fair. In fact on one of my classics mixes I started the set with three mixes of little bullet in a row!

...nice one Jamie, although Schtoom was always bettered by this one for me, the percussion epitomises this period of progressive IMO:

Absolutely love Havanna - I remember the first time I heard them was on a free cover mount cassette on DJ magazine or something similar I think around 1992.

This was always massive too, in fact anything on guerrilla or limbo is an instant classic:

Interesting question.

I would still describe the music Diggers plays as progressive house. It may be a bit closer to tech house at times, but if you listen to a long set from him it varies from deep house right through to techno, which is surely the point of progressive house – spanning a wide variety of styles that all hang together.

Some people think progressive house has to be uplifting / melodic etc, but I think its more of a style of djing than it is a style of music. The proverbial 'journey' if you like.

Thoughts?

Deffo. Flew through it last last week whilst by the pool.

Interesting juxtaposition between the kids nagging me for ice creams v.s psychopaths murdering hookers.

I find it perplexing how Brits equate guns to all the problems in the US. So you're saying guns impoverished these neighborhoods and not the obvious endless moral poverty? Bunch of Morgans you are.

I guess I'd rather find myself in a mass brawl in Wakefield than a gunfight in Detroit. Then again, if I ever find myself in Wakefield, being shot sounds like a good way out of there.

Massive +1 for Wakefield, scary place. Growing up, my options for going out were Huddersfield, Wakefield and Barnsley. A bit like choosing which torture instrument you would prefer.

Good call on Clacton too - had the 'pleasure' of going there a couple of years ago, horrific.

Special mention must go for Wigan - the times I had to wait in the train station for 3 hours for a connecting service after a full on night at Cream were nothing short of Vietnam level psychological warfare...

All three CDs are top quality, but as mentioned the third one is absolutely bang on.

Funnily enough I bought the package and listened to all the tracks individually first, and thought it sounded a bit monotonous. How wrong was I. There's the mark of a great dj right there - the mix is much more than the sum of its parts. The digweed magic touch does it again.
