2)Heaven 17 - Let Me Go (instrumental)

3)State Of Grace - That's When We'll Be Free

4)The Detroit Experiment - Think Twice (mark E Remix)

This mix goes out to the new remixes of think twice.

Two separate records released on junorecords 10th anniversary series. The remixes have been released on different 12 inch singles and are the first records this year to give me that awesome tingle and shiver. Tell me what you all think.

Discogs 2nd Remix

Another record I picked up recently from Northside, which I have to say is one of Melbourne's finest second hand stores - "State of Grace - That's when we'll be free." I did not expect it to be such a ripper. I think I will be playing this one alot Discogs .

Some of the more recent stuff on environ sounds a lot like this, what a tune made back in 1982. I have been told by my youtube buddies that back in the early 80's this was a classic on kiss and local disc jokies would play it on end. I will try to feature the b-side again in a mix as both mixes are ace.

While up in NSW, I also managed to hunt down this 7 inch - Discogs. A crazy b-side instrumental of an ordinary tune.

Deep House Mix

Deep House Mix

Here is an older mix I did where I was laying down some deep house. Circa 98-2002 records where being played towards the end, some real nice ones. I am a big fan of this sound and have been trying to find more records with that warmth that labels like 'nuphonic' and 'seasons' etc were releasing back in those good ol days.

My favourite is the CPEN whitelabel promo which was subsequently released on seasons back in 2002 Discogs. I am not sure if my version is any different to the release on seasons. This record deserves lots of praise, CPEN has produced some awesome analogue warmth in all 4 tunes on the ep. Nice one CPEN, his new music is great as well - legend.

Also, this mix features one of my fav house tunes from 2006. This tune was being put in every techno and house mix I was hearing but the actual record itself was so hard to come across in Australia. Don't worry, it has been reissued now and released on traxsource. Before all this, it was going for a good $100USD. Discogs.
