AH.FM Deja Vu 003 (31st January 2011)

And so I was delighted to be asked back for a third time for this special nostalgic event! Had many thoughts about what to do for it, whether to go old old school and play some obscure early German stuff that I love (and others would probably hate) but in the end decided to pay homage to probably my favourite trance producer of all time 🙂 More modern trance than classic trance I suppose, but then we were allowed to go up to 2005 😉

Live at Off The Rails – Rise Above 040 – Classics special with James Alexander

As you might have ascertained from the title, this isn’t your usual episode of Rise Above!

Last month my fellow Defcon-ite James Alexander and myself DJ’d at Off The Rails in Sheffield at a special “Journey Through Trance” night, where each of the DJs had a specific era to adhere to in their set, going further back in time as the night progressed. We had the closing set of the night, playing stuff from 1996-98! 🙂

We took some liberty with the years for our set, but I hope it doesn’t detract too much! Similarly a couple of the transitions are… let’s say less than impressive…but my excuse is that I can blame all of those on James… In our defence try and bear in mind that we did do this between 5am and 6am, and I’d gotten up for a full day’s work almost 24 hours before that too! 😀

Modern Classics V – The Rebirth Session Episode 048 (19th August 2005)

This was the fifth and final edition of the Modern Classics series, although to be fair I’ve never actually ever ruled out doing a sixth!

But this is probably the culmination of all my years of vinyl hunting – there are still tunes I want to track down (Chiller Twist – Stringz Unlimited? Anyone?) but thankfully my need has ebbed as the years have passed, and the digital revolution has solved many problems in that respect for me.

Although saying that, I just two seconds ago managed to track down a copy of Strings Unlimited and ordered it, after being reminded in the previous paragraph! Vinyl will never die 🙂

Modern Classics II – The Rebirth Session Episode 028 (11th February 2005)

And this was the second, and the longest, of my Modern Classics series. It’s also missing a bit at the end, since this was the day I first learned of the “2gig of wav” rule.

I record all my mixes onto my PC using a program called Magix, and it records in wav, which I then convert to 192 mp3 for all my sets. However, the program can only record a maximum of 2 gigabytes of wav at any one time – that much, as I learned this day, equates to 3 hours, 22 mins and 7 seconds.

There was actually another pile of records I was going to continue with, but this is as far as the recording got to. In the end I chose to simply do a part 3 😉

Modern Classics I – The Rebirth Session Episode 025 (21st January 2005)

OK, so, by now I’d realised that I not only enjoyed doing the classics mixes, it was also very popular with the Friday afternoon crowd! Plus as I was now doing sometimes 3 shows a week it was also nice to have a different agenda too!

I spent many years collecting all the trance classics I wanted. Once I’d got my own decks there was a large back catalogue to get through, and I’m happy to say that I’ve now, more or less, gotten a copy of every old trance tune I ever wanted, but it’s been a very long and expensive journey to get there! 🙂

Anyway, this was my first of my five soirées into the Modern Classics series, of which I’m very proud – and as a result I’ve not really ever done many other mixes dedicated to classics as these 5 pretty much say everything I wanted to!
