EDIT: mix will be available on http://www.psyreviews.com/oakeymix.mp3 (right click, save target as) until tuesday evening -- it's a massive file, dont even think about trying if you're on dialup :P
if you want it on a CD please PM me asap, i'll be getting them sorted later this week.

f*ing f*ing f*ck!!!

i remember listening to this after the pub when i'd come back from uni for xmas holidays.... got in and nibbled a bit of hash, my folks were living in this tiny rented place at the time and i had the box room, i just lay on my bed and started out the window at the moon while this was on... twas the first time i heard LSD, stimuli, and all that....

i had it on tape but lost it years ago... then last weekend sat in a mate's car, he had it playing and i couldnt believe it was all of ten years back...

so a week's worth of creative use of broadband *cough* and i've got it. and it's fucking lovely, it just utterly rules. i'm happier than a pig in shit.

Does any remember a Tribal Gathering around the same time?
Paul Okenfold was playing in one of the smaller tents at dawn and was playing tracks from Dragonfly and Concept in Dance.
It was mad, 'cos a lot of the other tents were half empty but this one was heaving even on the outside. At the time, the only sorts of music where techno, house, rave and hardcore. I remember it being very exciting and connections started being made in my mind (ie trance parties, goa etc etc).
There was another CD as well that did the rounds in Glasters that summer as well, Voyage into Trance, I think it got re-released a couple of years ago.

They were great times, but I do remember having big arguments at the time with various folks along the line of "it'll all go downhill now that Oakenfold and Rampling are actively pushing it on radio 1." :lol1:

I was talking to snafu in a very mesy state the other weekend about this - made it a mini mission to try to get hold of many of those tunes at the time, and got them :Grin:

Might have to buy some more vinyl decks...

Slightly OT but around the same time as that was broadcast Billy Nasty did an essential mix too - it was absolutely f**kin incredible - and the 2 mixes became a soundtrack to a good couple of years partying and working (we were all working/managing a Laserquest site - talk about the most ideal environment - and even got to redecorate the playing arena with all the UV :Grin: )

Aaah, the memories, thanks for that Damion :Wink3:

It certainly is the canine's testicles.

BTW, not wanting to change the thread, I always felt that the Oakenfold name would be a no no in this forum. Glad I was wrong.
