1995 was a big year!

Yet more goodness from the world of tapes. This one is imaginatively called May 1995 because that is what it said on the label on the tape, in fact it said ‘DJ Reaver 21/5/95’ , which was a Sunday. The mixing is much better in this one, boarding on almost ok. I am happy with the sound quality too and did not need to do much to fix it…. You might be interested to hear that I’m typing this up while listing to Jimmy j & Cru-l-t – take me away (slipmatt remix) which I hear Slipmatt will be remaking…. or then again you may not.

Give me a breakbeat !

Here’s a mix that I have had tucked away for some time. It’s not rescued from a tape like the others, it’s a CD mix that I made back in 2000. Don’t know why but I never released it. I do think I boched the mastering a bit and cranked the mastering compressor too much, oh well…..But hey this mix includes one of my tracks…!!

I’ll just leave it as this, here is what I wrote on the inside sleeve of the CD… LOL!

DJ Reaver will be the first to tell you that mixing records is all about fun, and ‘Break Of Dawn’ certainly is fun.

This CD represents hardcore music from an era that was all about cheesy rip offs and girly piano samples, elements which combined with a party crowd could only mean one thing, a good night out!

As per usual the track selection from DJ Reaver is perfect, all thirteen tracks define the essence of hardcore breakbeat, with a style of mixing that can only emphasis the fun elements of the music.

Be sure the keep this CD handy and take a hit any time you are in need of a lift.

Procrastination is the enemy of creativity

The tracks on this mix where downloaded about 1 hour ago, just long enough to record and upload it. I didn’t really listen to any of these tracks before mixing them, other than briefly before downloading them, so you are listening to my first attempt at mixing them. Enjoy…. I’ve also fixed up the DJ set download area of the site, so take a look and make sure you get some of my older stuff….. plenty more stuff to come….
