    G'day :)

    Anyone know of a site that has these archived for downloading? Took a notion today to listen to some old ones but would like to have a copy also, could only find streams :(

    Getting goosebumps listening to this, a young cub I was then :)

    Been there, no joy with the ones I was looking for :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,751 ✭✭✭Ste-


    What ones are you looking for specifically ?
    Find it hard to believe TMB wouldn't have them ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,878 ✭✭✭munchkin_utd


    small tangent, but the Essential Mix is now 20 years old.
    The party to celebrate the event happened last weekend.
    How time has flown!

    I think the first one I heard (and taped) was the andy weatherall one a few weeks in to the series.
    Great to see a lot of them now on soundcloud rather than have to hoke out the incomplete old cassette tapes again

    Just looking for a few live broadcasts from Kellys/Lush in Portrush I would have been at between 98 and 05.


    On the 20th anniversary bit, apparently there was to be a special Sasha mix but it got pulled :(

    18 March 2001 from Kelly's Portrush.
    14 September 2006 is Lush and 12 March 2006 too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,751 ✭✭✭Ste-


    Speaking of Kelly's Portrush, have an Ultra Sonic & Bass Generator tape from 1995 from there if you're interested.

    Ta, there's a few earlier than that though also, one in 98 and one in 99 that was part Lush and part from the Red Box, Sasha and Dave Seaman. Gonna hoke out my taped recordings and see about transferring then onto PC myself in the hope that the quality is ok. Hit a dead end finding them online :(


    As for the Ultrasonic/Bass Generator era, before my time I'm afraid but thanks!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,805 ✭✭✭Setun


    I haven't listened to that many (pretty late to the party), but can anybody recommend any classics worth checking out?

    I was at this (Red Box) - pretty sure it was Sasha and Darren Emerson, maybe Dave warmed up Lush.

    This set is definitely available online - I have it if you can't find it. Sasha opens with a great Timo Mass remix of Paganini Tracks - Zoe,. He used to open with such ****ing great tracks around that time.

    He dropped. Xpander for the first time that night (well, first time I heard it), and I dropped a four leaf clover for the first time that night :). Wasa good one, one of the best in fact! There's a track three tunes in to his set which just sounds like 3 tones of sunshine shining into the nightclub. I remember thinking the entire club was bathed in white light which was pure love coming out of everyone else there and if I raised my hands into the air I channelled it all through me and back out into the room!!! Hmmmm....


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,959 ✭✭✭Liamalone


    You're spot on, it was Emerson in Dublin. I easy at Kellys that night and it was a great night! If you could send me a copy of that mix it would be appreciated, drop me a pm sure.

    There is so many great essential mixes but this is one of my favorites Daft Punk in 97 http://www.mixesdb.com/w/1997-03-02_-_Daft_Punk_@_Bunker_(Essential_Mix)

    There's a couple of Laurent Garnier ones from 94 and 95 which are well worth downloading, full spectrum on some from trip hop through to Goa trance at the end, others are just really really good second wave detroit techno, very good sets for their time

    Mylos from 2005 is fairly hands in the air cheesy but great for running (actually spent one of my best days skiing with it on the earphones)

    Andy Cato 2006 very well put together house set

    Gabriel Ananda, 2007, really really good techno / minimalist set

    Sasha essential mix modern classics is very good, his one world from Glastonbury 2003 is a great set too

    I listened to the Black Strobe one night while I was in a right old mess. Ever since I've wondered was it actually that good. Would love to hear to it again. I wonder if it's online?

    Edit. Here it is. https://soundcloud.com/youpla-boum/essential-mix-black-strobe

    I've always loved James Zabiela's Essential Mix from Glastonbury from 2008, the second hour is Booka Shade's mix.

    I was at a house party with a young and very much unknown Zabiela a couple of times, the first time everybody was at the bad stuff and he was just happy eating crisp sandwiches and playing the decks, the second time was much the same, have that 4 cd mix about somewhere and must hoke it out as from what I remember it was very good, must've been around 2001 at a guess.

    Crisp sandwiches while DJing? Not even a can of beer?

    Not even a beer or anything else, was quite content playing the decks. He was only around 18 or 19 at the time I'd say.

    The first time I was in a room with James Zabiela there was about 8,000 people standing behind me. Needless to say there wasn't too many crisp sandwiches on the go.
