  2. Nice post - my mixing nowadays still falls victim to 'nostalgia'!
  3. Freestyle old skool jam -mixing it up from some of the good days gone by:
  4. Have a look at this which echoes all these sentiments
  5. Thanks, mate As I recall, the mix with that track was Jules' 5th of 99, so much so he was crowned DJ of the year and given the Radio 1 turntables by all accounts. I was actually listening to it over recent times which lead me to feature a couple of tracks from it. N2F also mentioned 'Toca Me' in a post here; I had that track up my sleeve for this as it's purely timeless for me, but this mix and its tracks have many of the attributes mentioned in that thread and drove me to put this together. The next installment (Mix 1) will be put together imminently Look forward to your feedback if you can share once you had opportunity to check it out...

  7. Hi all, I've an itch to scratch: reminiscing wanting to spin/mix some old skool trance music - another homage to Jules & all us here. I'd like to go something Ibiza'esque, but with tracks from Jules' era '99 - '2004 (or so) - as for me, those were the golden years. Can I have your choice here please, but please try to avoid anything commercial/mainstream that hasn't featured on some Ibiza mix album before Thought this may encourage a little activity on here whilst we're all locked down & provide some entertainment to keep us all together. Depending on how many tunes, I'm happy to put together a 1hr or 2hr set... Deadline is mid/late November! Cheers
  8. Veterans of the infamous JudgeJules Archive forum, Aza & Dan, have combined forces to record a high energy retrospective mix in homage to Judge Jules and Eddie Halliwell. Jules had a 25-year career span at Radio 1 becoming one of the most iconic names in dance music. Debuting on the world-famous Essential Mix in 1994 he later became a full time presenter in 1997 with the "Saturday Warm Up". Quickly establishing himself as a "gateway DJ", Jules drew in audiences by reflecting current clubland trends before expanding their musical horizons with the introduction of wider influences. A keen ear for talent, during his peak he was one of the most influential figures in global dance music. In 2002, in a special end-of-year round-up broadcast, Jules featured several internationally renowned DJs, including Tiësto and Paul Van Dyk, where each would pick a special track. Having already heard of an up-and-coming DJ who was making waves, Jules offered a unique 15-minute segment to 24 year old (electric) Eddie Halliwell. This exposure would help catapult Eddie to the global stage. As well as releasing one of the most critically acclaimed demo CD recording for Mixmag, BOSH!, it wasn't long before Radio 1 had Eddie back on air for his first ever Essential Mix, LIVE! Eddie went on to complete over 6 more and landed a resident DJ show with the station. Jules, having held down 33 Essential Mixes, must be close to a record! At the time, many commentators tipped Eddie to become a successor to Jules as the UK’s foremost ambassador for UK dance music. While their paths would eventually diverge, in turn both would hold residencies at the iconic Gatecrasher, share coveted Radio 1 airtime, headline major festivals together and despite differing mixing styles, feature considerable playlist overlap. From this point on, Aza and Dan were both hooked and big fans of both DJs. Over 20 years later, the genres of Trance and Hard Dance they used to spin has since moved on but still holds a special place in their hearts. As loyal fans to some of their idol DJs - and DJ friends in common, they've combined forces to deliver an 'Essential Mix-esque old skool classic set'. This back-to-back set is testament of their admiration, passion and recognition to this whole scene of clubland. 01. Ariel - A9 (Original Mix) [Essential : ESX15] (2000) 02.

  9. you could try emailing Jules - he also welcomes it - and sure he may be able to help oblige?
  10. Just listened to this again today. what a set, what a tracklist, that is something special. Jules knows his records, indeed, just like he got caught to become a famous, he plays the right tracks to the right people, and this here for us, is a damn right special mix.
  11. Stumbled on this after some recent reminiscing. It is very quiet here these days, I'm a veteran to this site, as I know some others are... Just to say Jules single handedly got me into my biggest all time hobby & he does still have a special place in my heart. Times change, things move on, but he, indeed, knew how to smash out a good tune.
  12. I've begged Jules over the years for this, but I don't think he has a digital copy & can't locate his vinyl...
  13. Thank you for the upload and sharing this show, too - made my day!
