Topic: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

Rebroadcasted again with commentary from Oakenfold himself about the mix & track selection.

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

With respect, this sounds like a horrific idea. It's a classic mix but it doesn't need the gremlin fellating himself all over it 20 years later to enhance that fact.

He comes across pretentious but I didn't mind it.
This & the Que Club essential mixes were a big part of my teens, so it was cool to hear again in a far better quality than the tapes I had at the time

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

TBF, when he did an AMA on Reddit he sounded like a decent bloke.

Awful control   Broken physics   Horrific AI   Weak voice work   Poor textures.

And that's just Wally on the pull.

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

Think the fluoro cd still stand the test of time(ish), the Goa essential  mix less so. Artists like the man with no name, legend b,floor space,junior reactor are better live than on vinyl imho.

Seen them all at Return to the source,Oddworld and Escape to Samsara and  even Creamfields for gawds sake.

Oaky himself, is not the man he once was(who is?) but i dont think he helps himself when interviewd , comes across as a scientology/david icke type of gadge.

i prefer to look back on his body of work with misty eyed nostalgia ,that was so long ago it flickers in black and white

Viva Oaky!

The wrong questions with the wrong replies. Wrong.

Jay Welsh, Martin Cartledge, Nat Monday were all great producers.  Flammable was a highly underrated label.  Martin went on to form Weekend World - both the label and the group. Not bad for a bunch of lads from Bradford.

Didnt know that mate. great great label.

my quirky fact(not as good as yours), the Taste xperiance,(highlander/tantric and of course summersault) were two burly landscapes gardners from that well known land of prog(and slags)

southend on sea.

They put me on their mailing list after a chance meeting in Miami for their label showcase in 1999, so I got to know them a bit.  I still talk to Martin here and there.

Norman Hines of Stripped is from Southend and even ran a rather good club club night under the same name.

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

Weekend world / Skydiver put out some amazing tracks, didn't like the more recent tracks (>2004) where it went electro.

Francesco Farfa - Twister (Weekend world remix)
Skydiver - Tales from a backroom e.p

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

I Was looking on e bay over the weekend and oakys  two year resident cream cd (double, with the courtyard  crowd whooping it up in the background) seems to go for anything between "£20 to £ £40 odd   a pop,second hand. still a demand for the old boy , it would  seem.

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

It used to go for over a ton. The crowd whoops were edited on afterwards btw.

Re: Oakenfold - Goa Essential mix

fack!! i had two copies !!, both lost in the house move.cuuuuunnnnnnttttt.

with luck i'll still have judge jules 'trance anthems' 5cd collector set that i got out of cex for an investment of  £1.50 over christmas.

all i have to do is lie back and wait , in 200 years it may be worth £1.49.

'el nino' mutthafkrs.

i did have an 'inkling' the crowd noises were put on afterwards.

i remember overheating like a bastard  when hearing nautical bodies at cream for the first time.magical.

that eisbaer/groovezone though, sounds like a homosexual troop of the STASI prancing around  on stage  ,'salon kitty' style in a tranny Bar. no non nein!.
