So this weekend just gone I was invited to play a set at an Old Skool Rave event. Besides the odd friends party or BBQ, sets are rare these days… It felt good to take over the decks in front of a real crowd, and didn’t they love it! Now, this may sound like I am blowing my own horn a little bit, but I’m going to say it anyway… I keep getting people telling me what an absolutely awesome set it was, in person, on Facebook and over the text messages…. well I’m thrilled that you all liked it and that it went down really well. I had spent about six weeks working through the back catalogue of tracks that I had personally created, I exported them from the old Pro Bars & Pipes files on the Amiga (yes Amiga! that’s what I used to write all my tracks on) and pulled them all into Cubase on my studio PC, I then set about remixing and re-mastering them all, in total I ended up with eight tracks that I thought I could play. Interestingly I made no changes to the structure of these songs but I did mix them in a modern way so they are much louder and brighter…. and boy! the difference is like chalk and cheese, the tracks could be modern tracks released just yesterday….
But don’t take my word for it, take a listen yourself. I have prepared a spacial mix for you all, I have re-recorded the set I play at the party, ‘It’s On Like Donkey Kong’….. I did change the track list slightly to include two of my tracks that I didn’t get to play on the night, but don’t stress they are just as good as all the others….. enjoy….
And as per usual you can get a direct download of the mp3 HERE
