They both point to the same site - zippyshare.

livesets also has alternative links

I didn't say it was nice, I just said it was free.

You can pay for the soundgarden sets direct from Frisky

https://www.friskyradio.com/show/sound_garden/

All the sets up to September 2014 can be downloaded here, plus loads of others

The Nick Warren Podcasts ended the middle of last year.  No idea why they stopped.

His bi-monthly Soundgarden and Frisky radio shows are still going, although trying to find a place to download them for free is becoming a right pain.

Best place I've found is DJ Sets which gives you links to Zippyshare/Rapidshare which can be a real hit and miss and loads of annoying pop ups:

If you take Uncle John's mixes out of it (which have been a mixed bag themselves), its been a pretty lame year for the mix CD.

Even pillars or previous years have been shy in their absence; Nick Warren, Dave Seaman, Hernan Cattaneo etc.

Its been hampered by Renaissance coming and going and coming again soon (Art Department).

GU's NU Breed was OK - nothing great, nothing bad.  Played a couple of times and got a bit bored.

Balance has been more to the techno side, so I've stayed away and can't comment (Magda/Pullen)

Let's hope it picks up towards Xmas

The Beach Club just around the corner from the twin towers. Wall to wall prostitutes. Good band. Cold beer.

I was there and it was totally amazing.  Such a massive buzz around the room when they both came on.

It was also my birthday and special thanks to Digweed for taking the time to come and wish me a Happy Birthday.

Just a shame I was slightly (ahem) worse for wear and probably didn't give the best account of myself.

Digweed was utterly amazing and a truly wonderful night.

So nice of him to invite Sasha along to make my birthday night so special

Special thanks to all that were there making it such an unforgettable night.

Don't think I've ever heard a Dave Seaman set I've enjoyed.

The Morrisons of Prog.

lol

Seaman's GU Buenos Aires mix is totally awesome - pure prog/prog-trance power throughout.  CD1 lifts off an just keeps going and going.  Up there with Digweed Los Angeles IMO.

Also Renaissance Awakenings, and The Silk Mix are pure class.

His Renaissance nights at the Cross were consistently awesome.

Seaman is much under rated IMO - although his Audio Therapy mixes didn't come up to scratch with his GU/Renaissance Work

is it any good for making love to?

Actually my Mrs caught a blast of it and actually voiced an opinion that wasn't the usual discontent.

Not sure I will be using it to lure her in for the yearly mating ritual, but definitely a mix that is more accessible to the fairer generation

Do you get the wondrous backlash of bantz if you voice an opinion on prog sounds ?

So, I've given the whole mix a good blast for a week now.

I have to say that having received the deluxe edition, the packaging is for sure OTT.  The book with the photos is really good for anyone that enjoyed the imagery, the postcards are predictively useless and the luggage ties are too tacky to be of any use.  The whole box is massive though, much bigger than the GU 10 edition which makes it look a bit silly sat on the shelf.

The mix itself, I've detached my mind from thinking its James Lavelle to try and give it an unbiased assessment.  In short its much better than I thought it would be.

He starts CD1 much harder that anticipated with a mix up of dirty house, it makes you wonder how much faster/harder the mix would be and whether it would be an uncomfortable ride.  Luckily the mix settles down after this.  Vocals are in abundance with only a few tracks across the mix that don't have a vocal on it.  It gives the whole mix a feel of a producer that is showcasing his tracks in a mix.

The mixing is OK.  Good in places and less than desired in others.  The album does have a genuine flow and feel to it and CD2 picks up where CD1 left off, which was a nice touch to the very different sounds the Travelogue and Main Mix feel of the other GU releases.

There are a few quality tracks in there, and the mash up of primarily dirty house with elements of trance, breakbeat and more normal housier sounding tracks keep it varied and interesting. 

I really like the abundance of vocals which gave it a more album sounding feel than a true mix.  I think having songs to listen to and at time sing along to kept me interested than had it just been a beats album. There are a few tracks that are uncomfortable on the ears and distract the mix from being excellent.  Some of the vocals are a bit annoying and repetitive without be subtle.



Overall once you get over the fact you're buying a James Lavelle mix, the album is actually pretty good and I have to say a pleasantly surprising return to form for the label considering the poor standard of later releases in the series.

In summary and very enjoyable and varied listen for anyone that enjoy vocals and that UNKLE dirty house vibe.  Some excellent stand out tracks and only a few duffers.

7/10 for me.

Current world champs at Billiards and Darts.  Can't take that away from us.

Until next year that is

1. Bedrock Layered Sounds 1 and 2
2.  Afterhours Series Global Underground - the Ibiza one is very good.
3. Cafe del Mar - Dreams Series
4. Nick Warren Amsterdam CD 1
5. Hernan Cattaneo - Masters 17 CD1
6. Digweed Sasha - Northern Exposure
7. Nick Warren - Masters 18 CD 1
8.  Biosphere - Subsrata
9. Electric Calm Series - Global Underground
10.LSG - Into the deep
11. Global Communication - 76:14

Funny you should mention that, I also gave it a spin this weekend to see how bad my dementia was getting.

CD 1 was a mash up of dirty house with the exception of "The Baguio Track" which is pure 100% class.

CD 2 was much more closer to my tastes, although loses it way towards the end.  Worst remix of Heaven Scent that I know.

Fair play though, wasn't 100% correct with my original assessment, but did say its been a long while since it got a spin.

To your point though, its nowhere near San Francisco though for intensity or journey.

Has anyone out there got an unwanted copy or are willing to sell a copy of the following CDs/Mixes.

I'm after the original CD version, not a copy or MP3;

Maybe if it was Frosties and I really fancied a bowl.

Not if its just cornflakes though, even for the Kellogs ones.

Must be a big bowl you get though, not those kiddy packets you get.

Do you know whether milk is extra or not ?

This is as guilty a pleasure as I could confess to.

Already feeling the shame.
