    Clubbing from 93 to all the sounds in clubland. Listening to JJ since 88. Showcasing my own JJ retromixes from the 90's, as there is so little of those times and sounds around. Some BANGIN' tunes and memories to recount!
  1. JULES DJ'ING @ HQ IN CAMDEN 1988 LOL

    Fresh faced Julius @ HQ Club in Camden 1988
  2. RECENT JJ RETROMIXES 96

    Nice one ... JJ came in with that Pizzaman tune @ Ministry - Frisky one time. I'd heard it on his show a couple of times and thought nothing of it at all. But when it came in during his set it sounded very different ... then again, that system is so perfect that you could dance to a fart coming through it! The Cotton Club - Honky Tonk remixes are on the next mix, which I'll be posting soon. I only really like the first part of Ice Rain, for me it just drops back in again, and on these mixes I'm tending to throw a lot down. So many tunes, so little time... Thanks for listening and for the feedback.
  3. 98 retromix

    Had a lot of laughs seeing Jules in 98. Frisky was still @ Ministry (best sound system I ever felt) and we were I went off him after 99 as the Trance saturation was too much for me. I liked earlier Trance examples and mixed with pumping grooves that took in tribal -breakbeats - bouncy funky styles. I was so off my face in those days I'm surprised I can remember any of the sets lol. 95 - 97 was my fave for the more pumping stuff
  4. Haven't been on here for ages or done any JJ Retro mixes … threw this together at the wkd. Lots of Jules Trance era stuff up on here, this stuff covers my period of clubbing in London and listening to Jules flagship Kiss Fm Fri – Sat slots from 91 – 97. If your looking Trance only then forget it. If you like "Pumping" music then check it out. These were the big tunes of the day in Jules' box and on his Kiss FM playlist … shame there are literally zero shows around from those days, as it was still very much pre-digital. I had dozens of tapes with his shows and others but they got thrown away by mistake during a move a few years back. I enjoyed tracking down these tunes as many never made it to the CD mixes that were around back then. Jules was on rotation for all the regular club nights and specials all the time. Peach @ Camden w Graham Gold, Frisky @ Ministry (he would do 3 hour sets in the box) Gallery @ Turnmills, Serious @ The Cross, Divine @ Bagleys and Lloyd Studios. Kiss did some good allnighters @ Shepard Bush Empire as well. All the other big names were always around, Fontaine, Tall Paul, John Kelly, Tony De Vit, El Tongo, Blocko and Alex P, Healy, and the rest. Its odd to look at London clubbing now with the 90s era as an afterthought, it was a seriously hedonistic time and there was so many nook and cranny places to hang out in all day after clubbing. Or just roll up to most pubs with decks and spin your own tunes. Pre-surveillance world … you can't take a shit now without it being analysed by some suits in a Batcave in the next room … glad I got my rocks off in that earache lol that was 21 years ago (WTF ...) I enjoy early Trance stuff but have always been more into a spread of styles, which Jules was more about in earlier times. Anything from Funky – Tribal – breakbeats - uplifting and the downright nutbag tunes he seemed to have an ear for. Its basically just “Pumping” … More on the way now I got the bug again lol ... enjoy.
  5. My 60 minute mix for September.

    Some good tunes on there ... none I've heard before. Good work
  6. 98 retromix

    Good memories of clubbing to JJ in 98. We saw a few of the R1 Dance parties and JJ @ Cream, MOS, Gallery, The Cross and Creamfields ... this is quite anthem ridden, but were the big ones of the day. Will have another from the same year with more obscure and not so played tunes ... Enjoyo https://www.mixcloud.com/anderson77/retromix-98-elements/

  10. Another update for my JJRetromix series Shame the MOS Frisky sets were not broadcast in 96 97 98 as JJ really smashed it. The Dance Nation 3 Launch in March was no exception. This is the bulk of what JJ played during a monster 3 hour set. Great night, with Seb Fontaine and Brandon Block in the bar room and Tong, Tony De Vit and JJ in the Box (Main Room) There are obvious ommissions, as JJ always had THOSE White Labels and Mashups you couldn't find elsewhere. One in particular that I never found was: Luka - NY Style Dub. A powerful groove he was all over in March - April 97. Its on the tail end of a mastermix on the KIss FM 97 radio session with Whitehead that's up here. I'd pay good £ for that tune now! Enjoy the mix. 97 was one of JJ best years and the DJ's hadn't all tranced out too much. Check my other thread for more of the same http://www72.zippyshare.com/v/wf0C5GZm/file.html
  11. I didn't like JJ's remix of Funky Groove ... the original was way more driving ... He played all these tunes @ Frisky MOS when we went down for my Birthday on the Fri 24th July. JJ and John Kelly had both come straight down from the live broadcast in Liverpool for the R1 dance party there. We were at the Brighton one and it was crazy. JJ was still doing great sets that mixed pumping club tunes with Trance. I never could find this mix of "In My House." the great pumping era was 96 -99 for me.
