Named after the location of the legendary Twilo while it was at its peak and John & Sasha's residency causing a road-block 'Midnight On West 27th Street' also featured on CD2 of Danny Howells Nubreed for Global Underground.

02. Freak Project - Beat Of A Drum (Steve Lawler's Deep South Remix) [Soul Brother | sobro007]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: The Freak Project at Delerium Vocal sample by Sugarglove

Next its the tribal sounds of 'Beat Of A Drum' which had already had the Peace Division treatment [sobro010] - this one is remixed by Steve Lawler who was holding down his (now legendary) Home residency on the Space Terrace as well as playing the likes of Twilo. Steve's sound had a Tribal vs Progressive feel that realy comes through in the remix. Steve also provided Bedrock's 8th release with 'Rise In' which also spawned some great remixes.

03. Raffen - Understone [V2music France | VVR5016247]

05. Velvet Girl - Walking In Sunshine (Cass & Slide Remix) [Additive | 12AD060]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: Laurent Christian Georges VÈronnez

Velvet Girl (aka Laurent VÈronnez, Cosmic Junkie, Airwave and part of Planisphere, whose 'Deep Blue Dream' was on Seaman's GU 012 Bueson Aires) also gave us the classic Oakey 1999 anthem 'Summertime'. 'Walking In Sunshine' had an extended batch of releases and remixes for progressive trance labels Bonzai UK and Green Martian who provided anotehr great Paul Oakenfold staple in Red Sign - Wonderland.

Here the trance is toned down as Cass'n'Slide their own take on proceedings. Cass Cutbush & Pete Martin are the British production/remix duo famous for their brooding progressive trance anthems, expert remixes and DJ Sets (incl. a 2001 Essential Mix and guest mixes for John's show). The duo met in 1999 while they both were working at the London based Flying Rhino Records. They released "Diablo" on Flying Rhino before relocating to the Cass (and fellow Englishmen Lee Burridge) owned Fire records. The duo were given world-wide exposure when the Evolution remix of "Diablo" appeared on John Digweed's Hong Kong Global Underground mix CD, and their massive trance anthem "Perception" was featured on Sasha's Ibiza Global Underground mix CD. The duo's remix skills were also gaining notoriety with an increasing amount of their reworks appearing on various DJ mix CDs, the most popular being their superb remix of Astral Projection's "Liquid Sun".

The duo released a full-length album in 2002, which turned out to be a departure from their usual sound with a larger focus on the breaks and down-tempo sounds of the electronic music spectrum. The CD received mixed reviews, and Cass & Slide's production/remix out-put halted when Cass' Fire label folded in early 2003. As a duo they have remained largely inactive since, although Cass has since worked with Tom Mangan (as Cass & Mangan and Deadset) and has his 'Cass Collective' project http://soundcloud.com/casscollective .

06. Andreas Kauffelt - Bitcrusher (Solarcycling EP) [Aural Satisfaction Germany | ASR019]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: Andreas Kauffelt

Andreas Kauffelt runs vinyl mastering company 'Schnittstelle' and has put out some hard edged techno tracks like Bassquake and more minimal industrial tracks like Kookaburra (which Gabriel Ananda remixed). Still going strong his infectious 'Every Morning' was picked up by Cocoon [COR LP 011] and Heckmann & Kauffelt - Sommersause [Karton Schallplatten | Karton01] was played on Transitions 08-Jul-2007. More recently he's worked with Japan Techno Ambassador Toby Izui with tech releases on the likes of Karton Schallplatten.

07. Way Out West - The Fall (Bedrock Vocal Mix) [Way Out West | WOW005]
Released: 2000 (exact date unknown) Written By: Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff

Progressive house production duo from Bristol (England) of Nick Warren and Jody Wisternoff has been responsible for some of the biggest classics in the progressive house scene, including their early club hits "Ajare" and "The Gift". Almost immediately they were signed to Deconstruction, home at the time of Sasha, M-People and other notable dance acts. After the success of their first self-titled album, the two began building their extensive remixography with reworkings for Faithless, Inner City, Sunscreem, Art of Noise and more. The 2000-single "The Fall" signalled the coming of new studio material, which culminated in the release of the full-length "Intensify" on Distinct'ive Breaks Records in 2001. The "Don't Look Now" album followed in 2004. In 2008, they released the single "Spaceman" on [Invalid Artist] and their 4th studio album "We Love Machine" in September, 2009.

John Digweed and Nick Muir (production duo Bedrock) provided Vocal and Instrumental remixes. A huge track at the time, Bedrock's remix featured on GU 019 and Kiss 100 live sets such as Club Complex Code.

Deep Dish Bio

http://www.mercuryserver.com/forums/goodies/archives/002_DeepDish2.jpg

Deep Dish are the duo of Dubfire and Sharam. Originally from Iran, they took root in the Washington, DC area in the early 90's and established themselves as top-flight producers and DJ's, releasing several mix-cds (most notably "Penetrate Deeper") and building production credits on Tribal Records and their own Deep Dish Recordings.

They had successful collaborations with BT and Carl Craig, and several of their remixes were instant classics, including their remixes of "Hideaway" by De'Lacy, and Sandy B's "Make The World Go 'Round". Their "Yoshiesque" and "Global Underground: Moscow" mix-cds brought them massive acclaim around the turn of the century. They run the popular house label Yoshitoshi Recordings, as well as its sister labels Shinichi and Yo!.

More lately they have branched out on their own with Dubfire now running SCI + TEC Digital Audio.

Re: John Digweed - Kiss 100 Classics : Show 002

nice post ,thank u for sharing。 Do you play free rpg games? if not, that is not bad, but if you have ever played a game called DDtank, Brick Force, or Pockie Ninja, that would be better to try other online games with best graphics and gameplay. What an amazing strategy?  By the way, I am a diamond fan of cinema videos. you know the best online games? I recommend you try to watch saga of hero, and wargame 1942
