    Im unsure if this will fall on deaf ears or if its already been found impossible - I am after as many essential selections from Pete Tong as I can lay my hands on. Roughly 99 - 03/04. So many memories of Friday nights and so many incredible tunes. I have a good number on cassettes that I have nearly burnt through listening to on repeat. Anything I can download would be appreciated or any help would be great 

     

    I've not used it yet, but I was looking for Essential Selections to download and someone recommended themixingbowl.org

    Amazing- just googling the incorrect Mishka remix- its by me- Jon Doe! Thats why you cant find it.  It was so sad that it broke into three parts! 

    Hah! You must be proud - you created a mystery that couldn't be Googled and lasted for 20 years! You've made some Judge Jules completists very happy.
    Jules played a few of your tunes about that time, didn't he?

  3. Just wondering if any *ahem* "more senior" people on here have noticed younger DJs starting to play old late 90s-early 00s trance records?


    HAAi played "ATB - 9pm till I come" at AVA recently, Denis Sulta has been doing it for years with stuff like "666 - DEVIL" and "York - OTB". Jackmaster, Space Dimension Controller, Nina Kraviz all pull out trance tunes intermittently.

    I'm curious as to what people make of this? I can't really tell if they're these playing records in an ironic way - cos let's be honest some of these records have not aged at all well - or whether it's based on the assumption that the average 18-25ish clubber will not have heard these tunes played out before and they are being played out of genuine love?
    In 2000 Sasha was playing "Yeke Yeke", Paul Woolford is playing full sets of old skool rave/hardcore. When I used to DJ I would never leave the house without my copy of "CLS - Can You Feel It". Is my discomfort about this based on my snobbery against trance compared to "better" records?

     

    Mainly it just makes me feel old. I own cassette singles of some of these tracks and now a DJ is playing them off a USB stick to a room full of people a decade younger than I am.
    Nostalgia, eh? It ain't what it used to be....
