Well...
This got off to a bad start when my hard drive melted down on the the computer I usually used to do mixing and media on, so I had to scrounge around and eventually got back to fixing everything up.

Rather than my usual terrorising TA's with industrial and electro I decided to go back to where it all began for me, living out in the proverbial sticks of south west England we would occasionally have the city kids set up a dance party in reserves, parks and basically wherever they could get away with it at least until the rozzers started slapping people around with good behaviour sticks. Tracks would blow in every now and then if the wind was right, of course there was no chance in hell I'd be allowed to go to one!
But on subsequent trips back to England and Europe after I moved to Australia I always made a point of trying to get hold of some of those little gems of electronic music from the early 90s and drag back to this godforsaken, poisonous hellhole of a country where I've lived on and off for close to 20 years when I wasn't travelling or working overseas.

Australia had its own comparatively decent electronic music scene all through the 90s as well, but for this particular mix I chose a lot of English and European artists. That era where people dragged out their music machines and made stuff you could go nuts too, a lot of this is fairly much as underground as electronic music could get and "things" like SP23/Spiraltribe and Curley I doubt we'll see the likes of again.

I put a couple of early trance tracks at the start just so that those of us old enough to remember what trance was like before all the Armins, PVD's, Tiesto's and other subsequent high profile wankers choked it to death. Dont get it in your head for a minute the rest of the set is like those two!

Oh no, the rest of this mix is a rolling barrage of floor smashing, sub-bass destroying old school goa and underground techno full of much abused drum machines, screaming raw 303s that only played in raves and nightclubs that didn't suck. No one else would touch it, no hits on Saturday morning TV or your friendly local top-40 radio went near it because it was listened and danced to by lunatics that took lots and lots... and lots of drugs!

I live vicariously off my memories as I get older and settle into suburban obscurity, it saddens me that EDM has become so commercialised to the point of stagnation, even if there is a second coming for this type of music I doubt I'd have anything to do with it because I'd just look silly at my age and probably on a walking stick.


Of course Sendspace sucks bollocks.. Anyone still having it?

Okay, I guess I suck at this. I think I attract commitments from flakes, hmm?

Anyway, I have commitments as follows:


Denys Envy - August 2012
Slade - September 2012
Phil (Magnetonium) Part II - October 2012
djkopernikus (Koper) - November 2012


I'm not going to do this any more. Would anyone else like to take over? Otherwise, we can stop the "action" (or "inaction") or maybe let people share their classics when they feel like it, I don't know. I'll be glad to keep the first post updated if you continue to use this thread.

edit: DJ Christian, Lilith still posts on TA so you could message her and ask her to re up it for you.

I still have the set on my music drive at home so I'll gladly upload it for you when I'm home again.

I'm really grateful for those TAs who did "share their classics" with us. I love listening to these sets! They're just so much fun!



So, again, here are the outstanding commitments:

August 2012 - Denys Envy

September 2012 - Slade

October 2012 - Phil (Magnetonium) Part II

November 2012 - Koper (djkopernikus)

I really look forward to them. I'd like to persuade Lacks (Mikael) to make a contribution, too.

OK so here goes my version of the 'Share Their Classics'

From the beginning I struggled with how I wanted to approach this kind of a mix. Would I focus on my favourite records of the progressive genre I've collected over the past 10 years that now just appear to be collecting dust? Or would I profile some of my favourite relaxed electronic 'chillout' sounds I've loved and seem to play the most of now.

Instead I decided to compile the musical memories & inspirations of much of my childhood/adolescence that resulted in my purchase of my first piece of vinyl way back when I was 16 in 2001. I've kept it to 3hrs. It could well have been a lot more. Any less and I wouldn't have been able to do it justice.

I think that's the key to these mixes - being true to yourself and to what has influenced you. It's all very well listing a whole bunch of tunes you think with give you some mild form of credibility - but you need to ask yourself - are you being true to who you are and your experiences, musically speaking.

This isn't a 'mix' per se. More of a compilation, similar to many of my original mixtapes I made as a kid. Dubbing music off the radio or CD's onto a cassette and sharing with friends & family. See long before I knew about the phenomenon known as 'DJing' I was sharing my musical experiences in ways that looking back now seem a bit 'freaky' considering what transpired later on in life...

Much of this mix is a not just a look down memory lane but a look at the PHASES that we all seem to go through growing up. Adhering to different stereotypes and sub-social 'trends' or conversely rebelling the 'popular music' landscape which I guess most of us did by ending up interested in the vast sub-genres of electronica.

Download Slade - Memories & Inspiratons (A Classics Mixtape...) Here



Tracklist & Synopsis:

Tracks 1 to 6 are a bit of a tribute to my family as my primary influence growing up. I would've loved to have started this whole mix with George Gershwin's Rhapsody In Blue but it's really long and should just stand on its own as one of my favourite pieces of classical music.

One of my favourite movies of all time remains The Blues Brothers. And the music is one of the primary reasons. It's rebellious and raw and I loved it and still do. My older brother had it on VHS and I'd steal it off him and watch it non-stop.

Whilst my family dinners were not quite as entertaining as this one you get the scene I'm trying to paint when I say my mum & dad's CD choices at dinner were my earliest musical influence. Hence the Dave Brubeck, Gypsy Kings & Boney M. Classic dinner music. I look at what I play on my ipod these days and it's primarily a combination of jazz, cuban/latino & 70's funk & disco.


1. The Blues Brothers - Opening: I Can't Turn You Loose - 1980
2. The Blues Brothers - Peter Gunn Theme - 1980
3. John Coltrane & Dave Brubeck - Take Five - 1969
4. The Gypsy Kings - Volare - 1989
5. Boney M. - Daddy Cool - 1976
6. CDB - Let's Groove - 1995


I think there's footage of me dancing at my sisters 21st break dancing to 'The Bartman'. Epic. And the first cassette I ever owned was Kriss Kross' Totally Krossed Out after I sent my parents to almost every music store in Singapore trying to find it when they were on holiday. So we head down the early to mid 90's rap path... I remember decking myself out in my cross colour cargo pants with my sand coloured timberlands thinking I was the ultimate gangsta. Rather I was a 12 yr middle-class white boy living in Western Australia. At school we'd fight over whether the Nike trainers we were wearing were real of FAKES. Like I said - PHASES. For those interested in getting to know this old hip hop scene I recommend this site: http://www.itstherub.com/category/history-of-hip-hop/

7. Kriss Kross - Jump - 1992
8. Bart Simpson - Do The Bartman - 1990
9. 2Pac (Feat Dr. Dre & Roger Troutman) - California Love - 1995
10. Mark Morrison - Return Of The Mack - 1996
11. Ini Kamoze - Here Comes The Hotstepper - 1994

I think too many of us who are submerged in underground electronic cultures are quick to dismiss rock/alternative music. I was probably guilty of this 10 years ago but nowadays appreciate the classic rock/alternative tunes from back in the day even more. I guess I could've taken the easy option of put Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in - it was that classic 'teenager' track. But hey I like being ALTERNATIVE. Plus being an Aussie I need to plug our music as much as possible. I guess paying homage to the Seattle grunge sound that dictated so much of the 90's music scene the exception is the inclusion of the track from Brad If you were into alternative music growing up in Australia then you pretty much had to listen to Triple J. 'The J's' as it was affectionately known was my primary source of musical & social influence during those formative years from age 12-17. I suspect it was and continues to be for many other Aussie teenagers.

12. The Screaming Jets - Helping Hand - 1993
13. Brad - 20th Century - 1993
14. Jebediah - Harpoon - 1998
15. Something For Kate - Hallways - 1999

Crap I've written too much already.

So what's an Aussie mix without a bit of Kylie Minogue? As much as I usually hated these kind of pop tarts - this track is awesome and produced in part by Dave Seaman (Brothers in Rhythm). I included London Beat as it was one of those rare tracks I'd hear on mums radio station in the car trips that seemed kinda cool.

16. Kylie Minogue - Confide In Me - 1994
17. London Beat - I've Been Thinking About You - 1990

Towards the later end of the 90's my musical tastes started to veer more towards the electronic spectrum. I think that it was primarily due to the rise in popularity in electronic productions that were starting to feature more & more on radio... Also loved the rise of Jamiroquai... Pauline Pantsdown is a piece of classic Aussie political satire masquerading as house music.

18. Jamiroquai - Cosmic Girl - 1996
19. Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You - 1998
20. Pauline Pantsdown - I Don't Like It - 1998

We had these all ages parties known as 'EUROTEC' they were so shit. But that was where I began to get introduced to 'club culture'. Darude Sandstorm et al were on constant rotation. I decided to feature the Scatman to really highlight how naff it was.

21. Scatman John - Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bor-Bador-Bor) - 1995

Now I venture down the Aussie electronic path that I really began to delve into in 1999 beginning with Itch-E & Scratch-E. This was a track I heard on the radio all the time without realising any importance to it. It probably remains one of the most influential Australian electronic productions ever. In amongst some great Aussie stuff I also threw in Rendez Vu from Basement Jaxx. Would have loved to have featured Resin Dogsas well.

22. Itch-E & Scratch-E - Sweetness & Light - 1994
23. The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist - 2000
24. Sonic Animation - Theophilus Thistler...An Exercise In Vowels - 1999
25. Machine Gun Fellatio - Mutha Fukka On A Motorcycle - 2000
26. Basement Jaxx - Rendez Vu - 1999
27. Gerling - Dust Me Selecta - 2000
28. Wicked Beat Sound System - Stay With Me 'Til Dawn - 1999

Much of the reason I was getting interested in so much new music was due to staying up late studying for exams/assignments and constantly listening to radio either to focus or eventually get to sleep. One fateful night on a local community radio station (RTR FM) I stumbled across music that I just adored from the very first listen. I quickly raced for the cassettes and recorded the next 3 tracks of that session. These 3 tracks represent part of the pinnacle for me musically. Combining a sophisticated jazz & electronica sound (Nu-Jazz, Acid Jazz whatever you want to call it). This was the absolute ducks nuts for me. And still is to this day. I attribute my diversion from simply listening and accepting what was on the radio as the gospel to going out and finding your own path to these 3 tracks:


29. Buscemi - Gloomy Business - 1998
30. Coldfeet - Pussyfoot (Trüby Trio Remix) - 1998
31. United Future Organisation - Dans ce Desert - 1999

So my next step was to go to my record store after school and ask about 'Acid Jazz that doesn't get played on the radio. The assistance didn't know a thing but I ended up buying the Saint Germain album 'Tourist'. Another hugely influential record. Pnau's Journey Agent is simply a beautiful piece of Aussie electronica.

32. Saint Germain - Rose Rouge - 2000
33. Pnau - Journey Agent - 2000

Movies were also highly influential in developing my musical palate. The Matrix & Tomorrow Never Dies featured the Propellerheads, The Saint soundtrack featured Underworld, Chemical Brothers, Moby & Daft Punk. This set of 5 tracks is devoted the 'Cinematic' effect of electronic music. Whilst Hybrid's Snyper wasn't on a soundtrack I remember when I first heard it studying late one night and was absolute mesmerised by the combination of beautiful atmospheric classic music with the futuristic energy & vibrancy of electronica. If there was a track that influenced me most down the 'progressive' path this was it.

34. The Herbaliser - The Missing Suitcase - 1999
35. Propellerheads - Spybreak! - 1997
36. Underworld - Pearl's Girl - 1996
37. Hybrid - Snyper - 1998
38. Afro Celt Sound System - Lovers Of Light - 1999

So again after school I went to the record store and bought Hybrid's Live Angle: Sydney album. Again I was absolutely blown away. I searched the internet and napster for more. I then stumbled upon this site and many others when someone mentioned that Hybrid was in fact 'Progressive Trance'.

I went back to the record store and asked for more - he pointed me in the direction of the 'Progressive' CD section and suggested a CD that had just arrived. It was Global Underground: 14 Hong Kong - mixed by John Digweed. CD1 featured this next track and from the moment I heard it in the car on the way home I never looked back - from that moment I was hooked to all things 'Progressive'. A whole subterranean movement had emerged in front of my eyes. This opening track still gives me goose bumps to this day. Both in its power, beauty and influence.

39. Underworld - Cups (Salt City Orchestra's Vertical Bacon Vocal) - 1999

So I guess the next step was for me to start collecting the music that was on these mix cd's I was buying/downloading... Hence the final track is the first ever piece of wax I purchased.

40. Pako & Frederik - Friday - 2001

So there it finally is and I've clearly said too much.

Hope I haven't bored you too much. Enjoy.
