Here’s DJ mixtape of old school party tunes, recorded in (about) 1997:
Pretty pleased with some of the scratching. Well, it’s entertaining anyway.

The Dub Techno Blog has featured one of my tracks:
I’m pretty pleased as this was my first attempt at producing a dub techno track.

This mix was recorded in May 2000 in Leeds, on my trusty Technics 1210s. This is 5 years on from the last one posted so the mixing is pretty respectable by this stage.
We start off with some electro tracks from Simulant, Anthony Rother, and UR, then shift into 4-4 techno via Dave Angel’s gorgeous remix of Model 500’s ‘I Wanna Be There’. On the B-side it’s more melodic with tracks from (Weatherall side project) Deanne Day and Plaid among others.

Another old very old DJ mix recovered from tape. This was done on my belt drive Ariston decks in 1995. The levels are all over the place and there’s more dodgy scratching and and ill conceived back-spins! But no happy hardcore this time (you may or may not be pleased to hear).

I finally got a working tape deck a week or so ago, and sorted through a big box of old tapes. I found this beauty – a happy hardcore mix that I did with my mate Peach in September 1995. It was literally the first time I’d tried beat-matching records as I had just bought my first set of decks – Arison belt drive things (not great, but you learn to work with them). Some pretty dodgy crosses in there but not a bad effort.

This is a competition entry for a track made using only the Novation Circuit, in the Circuit Owners group on Facebook.
It’s a pretty basic sketch as no other instruments or devices were allowed.
