Blast from the past!

Yesterday’s post concerning the Plug track provoked a few reactions from friends, notably one from Joelle, who asked me for more tracks from that era.

My initial reaction was “Well, I have to sit down and make an effort to remember all the tracks we loved back then”, but then I remembered I have a quick solution at hand:

a mix recorded live (on a cassette tape, with vinyls!) on Easter Sunday 1998, during my last residency in Quebec City at club Sinclair.

What a great night it was!

This mix exists only as a RealAudio file, sadly, but the quality is still acceptable and I think the mix is pretty damn good too!

It was recorded during the first part of the evening, between 10:30pm and midnight, approximately, so I guess you can call it the warm-up part of the night, but if I remember well, the dancefloor was gtting pretty packed even at about the halfway point of this mix.

Ah! atom::funk! Certainly one of my most accomplished mixes, technically speaking, but not quite representative of my sound at the time. I have to admit I recorded this mix specifically to send as a demo to get booked, so I played it safe in the choice of tracks and worked hard on the technical side of the mixes.

I recorded it live in one afternoon at Maurice Nightclub in Quebec City, where I was resident back then. I also remember that I was really mad at my grilfriend at the time, although I don’t really remember why, but anecdote aside, it proves my theory that creating in a bad mood is often very efficient! 🙂

This is not the complete mix as it was recorded on a 90 minutes cassette tape but had to be truncated when I transfered it to CD a couple of years later, and I’ve since lost the original master…
