I used to have so many rave mixtapes. I gave most of them to my friend to add to his amazing Rave Archive website, but I still have about 20 of my own personal mixes that I have been meaning to convert to mp3, and just never got around to it.
I came across them again when I was cleaning out some boxes, and have been having a field day just listening to them while cleaning, lesson planning, avoiding going outside in 5° weather, etc. So many good memories and so many good tracks.
I expected the sound quality to be super shitty but I guess they kept well and they still sound surprisingly decent. I also expected the mixing from Code Blue circa late 90’s to be cringe-worthy, but they weren’t half bad… even if I do say so myself. 😝
Here are some oldies that I heard that I’m definitely digging out when I go have a mix session after I finish writing this post. 😻
Maybe I just needed a week to be lazy. 😉 I have a new approach to this week and I’m excited about it. No more slacking. I don’t think the slothy attitude type is becoming at all.
I have had an awesome weekend. My Oliver Twist bank account status has made my friends take pity on me and treat me to some really yummy meals. I got to spend time with Kathy and her bf Matt as well as my friend Jon and just partake in some really fun activities.
The Dj Rap show was fine. I had a good set but there wasn’t really that many people there. The important part was the people that mattered were there so that was fine. I have good buddies and that makes me happy. 🙂
Big Bud – Want You So Bad (track is in player)
Seriously, Toni Braxton and Brandy are awesome dnb samples. This Toni Braxton sample kills it. I’m really digging this. The bassline is so warm and fuzzy. ❤
