Dusted off this breakbeat mix for a road trip this past weekend and it brought back memories of the amazing rave on a hill in the trees outside Eugene Oregon in 1999 that originally inspired the mix.
The entire night was epic. From the pit stop at the biker bar to the climb up the hill to the location. God knows how the promoters hauled in a circus tent and all those bails of hay. The dust was so thick from mad dancing that needles were skipping 2 minutes into each vinyl track. Good thing I had my live set on a digital drive, so the elements didn’t stop us, though it took a mega-effort to clean the gook off the hardware on my return to San Francisco.
