  1. Pumping you up like a Lilo (Jules' refrain, not mine) ... TONS of classics and "all sorts" of beats n pieces from a by golly earache
  2. Remember 1998?! Here are some of the tunes that Jules rocked us with in Clubland and on the BBC R1 fri -sat shows, and Emixes during 1998 That Slinky live Emix … we were going to go but were seeing Jules @ Gallery Turnmills that same Friday, and he was premiering most of those tunes, and on the R1 shows. The weekend of the gatecrasher live Emix we caught JJ with John Kelly @ Frisky @ MOS. The Soundcity and Ibiza Emixes were pretty good, too … 1998 was Jules big R1 summer roadshow thing. The one at Pierhead in Liverpool was funny, as it was my 21st Birthday, and we bounced to the live broadcast while getting ready then we (& Jules & Kelly) went from there to Ministry for my birthday bash haha! I remember being distinctly pissed off as Jon Pleased and Kelly were in the main room and they shoved Jules in the bar?! The bar @ MOS was were people mainly posed and pulled, the rig was FA compared to the set up in the Box. He ended that set with the actual original Jane Fonda workout LP that was sampled by Bob Sinclar, much to everyones mashed confusion … typical Jules … I did get to thank him for playing exclusively for my Birthday. He giggled, clearly having had too much bollinger and staggered out with his driver. I ended up getting arrested for rolling a doobie pretty much in the open in Buckingham square in Victoria at 10am while still very off my tree ... and they found my other goodies … so my first day of 21 was banged up in Victoria nick, off my face and listening to my mate in the next cell shouting “Do press ups!!!” Ah … 90s clubbing … We bumped into Jules at Notting Hill Carnival that year, too … walking down to Good Times we saw this serious Jag pull up, and who jumped out? Jules and Amanda. While were dancing to Norman and Joey Jays eclectic sets I noticed Jules hanging around the Good Times bus and he was totally cool, talking about the old Family Function Daze, early Kiss as a pirate station, and how he got his name in the first place doing the illegal raves like. I did get photos of the day and one of us all with Jules but a load of my stuff got throw out the window of an ex girlfriends flat ( you know how it goes …) and all my photos from age 2 to 22 were lost … 98 was the last year saw Jules regularly, at least twice a month, alongside all the other DJ’s and styles that flooded London in those daze … London was a Clubbing Mecca, and we were lucky to have everything we wanted DJ – music style and Clubs right on our doorstep … very few of those places are still around … its all so socially cleansed these days. But you bet your arse we had it LARGE!
  3. Hello, all ... After an immense time it mixing up some classics at bank holiday I have "got the bug" again, and will be dropping fortnightly JJA RETROMIXES into MEMBERS AUDIO section and elsewhere on the web. Tunes aplenty that rocked it with Jules and Kelly, and the other big boys on the circuit from early 90s -99 ... All related nights like Clockwork Orange - Frisky @ MOS - Gallery @ Turnmills - Serious @ The Cross - Velvet Underground - Divine Promotions - Kiss FM all nighters @ various venues, and of course Peach @ Camden Palace with Graham Gold. So, if that era - earache is to your taste and jaded memories then, do check them out! All the best ... K
  4. Does anyone pre 99 JJ know a tune with a male "Freeeeeee yeah" sample on quite a pumping tune from 97?! Its a very well known sample thats been used on a plethora of tunes going back to early 90s. I want the pumping 97 tune its used on. Tony De Vit was using it in his sets during mid 97 and Jules suddenly started dropping it for a while.
  5. Big tunes ... it funny that you mention the good old daze and how we got into the music, I had been into Jules long before there was a glowstick and Gatecrasher logo in sight. 1988, when I had just started secondary school ha! Kiss was still a pirate station at 94:FM and JJ was a prodigy of Norman Jay's doing Funk and Acid House, pioneering the early Rave scene here in the UK. It funny seeing him known for pure Trance amongst people when he is mentioned today, I know from another era completely lol
  6. Hi to those I've already been in touch with on here and anyone else that wants to hear some prime mid 90s banging tunes ... new mix in AUDIO Section
  7. Got invited to play at a bank holiday bash alongside 2 other DJ's, whose styles I had no clue about,or what was going to be played. They wanted 90s pumping club stuff and I figured the other DJs would be playing trance or just anthem city, and I was right lol. I pulled a few gems out of the hat, and many of them I heard via Jules in the 90s heyday of Kiss FM and London clubbing, when it was at its most and hedonistic messy AKA: pre-surveillance! Lots of good memories OF NIGHTS I CAN'T RECALL with these tunes, a couple of them are hard to find acetates, so sharing the mix here ... enjoy. Especially Clockwork Orange - Frisky @ MOS - Peach and Divine Crew
  8. Goldies productions and remixes have always been pretty top notch ... I remember Jules caning Goldies rmx of Spirito - Frontiers ... 97 classic
  9. Latest JJ Retromix 96 -97 slammers. Ode to the BOX @ Ministry, when I had to crawl around collecting bits of my brain and other assorted inner sanctum components ...
  10. Haha! Gold and Jules were identical Dj's in style back then ... Gold went on to do the breakfast slot, which is your inference, I think lol ... They did some wicked B2B sets in 95 -96 playing the pumping club stuff of the day @ Peach - Divine and Bagleys
  11. Should be good ... Peach was one of my regular stomps in the mid - late 90s @ Camden Palace (now KOKO) Had some serious nights down there, as well as Clockwork Orange on Saturdays, monthly. Graham Gold and Jules in those days were pretty much the same sounding DJ's. Their flagship shows on Kiss Fm were a staple of our weekend. Gold is a really lovely geezer, not an ounce of ego or big head about him. I caught the Peach reunion last Thursday. The main room was all post 2000 trance, which is really my bag. Gold played the main room, then the back room at 5am for the last set. He did, to my relief, dig the crates and pull out some mid 90s gems. Had a little chat with him just before, as well. I may well check this out, as I've not seen Jules live since 1999 lol ...
  12. Mixup of early - blueprint tunes that more than paved the way
  13. Was booked last min to do a Gym – Arts space lol in Wandsworth … The other two DJ’s were Techno and Hard House but there was no way I was gonna pander to the same styles, so this was the set I came up with. Harder edged than usual with “TONS” of classics lol … was amusing as the other two were @ 145 and I played last @ 140 and nobody noticed the tempo shift. Happy New Year ... more mixes en route
  14. He'd already been on Kiss Pirate for 2 years and putting on parties as Family Function and doing Shoom. He was a different DJ then ... very much the London Sound, along with House and breakbeats it was very downtempo, dubby dance stuff. Bizarre to look at what Kiss devolved to after the 90s. I didn't actually catch Jules Djing live until summer 93. I was 16 and had troubles getting into clubs because I had a baby face lol ... I finally got into AWOL @ Paradise Club in Islington to see Randall playing Breakbeat - Hardcore (Jungle hadn't even landed then but was evolving in between the aforementioned styles) The House room downstairs was affectionately known as the chillout room lol, and Jules was in there DJing the stuff that was on his JDJ mix in 93. Very funky with Acid House styles. I don't think I missed a London gig of Jules until 99, when clubland really started to change along with the whole of London.
  15. Recent set I put together for an old clubbing partner and fiend's 40th lol Starts funky, summer vibe and builds
