JW / Electronica Classics 012: Sasha's NYE 1999 Mix At Ally Pally

I've been doing a lot of writing this week for school, and for some reason late 90's trance music helps get me in a focused frame of mind. In that spirit, I offer up this classic set from Sasha recorded on New Year's Eve 1999 at Alexandra Palace in London.

It's notable that during the years of 1998 & 1999, you'd be hard pressed to differentiate a Sasha set from a Paul Oakenfold or Paul Van Dyk set. There seemed to be a convergence in the style of music during those years from many of the famous European DJs. By 2000 or 2001, each of those guys were pursuing noticeably distinct sounds.

As you listen to this performance, it's easy to remember the kind of pre-millenial, chaotic but hopeful exuberance that trance music really seemed to embody. This was at the height of popularity for super clubs in the United Kingdom, and truly for the trance genre as a whole. I think this set really captures that spirit.

JW / Electronica Classics 011: Hybrid On One World 2003

This week's choice is the first breakbeat mix in the series and a true musical gem. I first learned about Hybrid back in the fall of 2000. This production team out of the UK was known for its fresh approach to breakbeat music, and represented a noticeable departure from the traditional breakbeat sounds popularized by DJs in Florida in the late 1990s. They gained international fame in the early 2000s when they were the opening act during Moby's tour.

The set was recorded on Radio 1's Maida Vale Live Session back during the summer of 2003 while promoting their then soon-to-be-released Morning Sci-Fi album. A year later, during July of 2004, I was able to conduct a phone interview with Chris Healings of Hybrid and asked him about this performance. Here is an excerpt from that interview.

Originally published in the August 2004 issue of the New Orleans Electronica Digest:

Juston: Your Maida Vale Live Session on One World that was broadcast on Radio 1 in July 2003 still generates buzz on dance music boards around the world. Were you guys aware of the set’s immense popularity amongst your fans?

Chris: We were actually, and you know what? For myself, as well, I think I actually prefer it to “Morning Sci-Fi”.

Juston: Really?

Chris: Yeah, I think it’s a much better set of tracks, mix of tracks. It’s got some of the older stuff in there and it’s got that “live” feel to it. It’s actually going to get released. We’re just releasing a Y4K DJ compilation, but after that there’s going to be another “Remixed & Additional Production” album that we did, which of course we’ve done before. It’s basically a set of all our favorite remixes that we’ve done for other people. We’re currently doing some remixes for Hans Zimmer, the composer. We’ve already gotten a hold of some of the parts from “Hannibal”, the film. So we’re currently remixing some film scores just because it’s rather interesting. So that album of “Remixes & Additional Productions” will be all of our remixes, but the second CD will be that live show from the BBC. Hopefully there will be some footage on there, too. Let’s see, what all did we have there that day? I think it was something like 40 classical players, we had Peter Hook from New Order there, Kirsty Hawkshaw, and then we had our 5 or 6 piece live act. So there were a lot of people in there that day.

Juston: Yeah, it sounded like quite the full studio that day.

But I’ll tell you what, my god was I stressed. (laughs) Pulling that one together was a bit tricky. But it came out really well. So that’s gonna get released, a proper release, because it really deserves it.

If that doesn't pique your interest, I fear little else will. Enjoy!

Weekend In NOLA For Crescent City Classic & Easter

Just got back into The Woodlands after 3 days in Louisiana for the Crescent City Classic & Easter. I was a little light on the blogging while there, but did manage to snap several great pics on my iPhone during the trip.

I've uploaded the two photo collections to Flickr for everyone to check out.

An awesome trip, and only three weeks before we get to go back for Jazz Fest. Living within reasonable driving distance of the city has definitely been a plus.

JW / Electronica Classics 010: JGriffin Live On WTUL New Orleans

I just got back into town from a weekend in New Orleans for the Crescent City Classic & Easter, so it seemed fitting to pull this mix out of the vault.

This two hour set was broadcast on my alma mater's radio station back during the summer of 2005, less than 2 months before Hurricane Katrina struck. I was living in Delaware when I downloaded this house mix, and it immediately struck a chord with me. The track selection is decidedly upbeat, with elements of jazz & Caribbean steel drums. In short, it really captures the musical diversity of the city.

I've really developed a sentimental attachment to this mix. It was the first music played in both my wife's convertible & my first new car. When I need to get in a positive frame of mind, this is likely the mix I'm going to cue up.

No tracklisting again this week, unfortunately, but I hope you all enjoy this two hour set as much as I have over the years.

JW / Electronica Classics 009: Roger Sanchez Live At Club Queen Paris 2005

Another great house set this week, with a four hour long monster from Roger Sanchez.

I ran across this set back during the summer of 2005 and it stayed on my iPod Shuffle for nearly 6 months as my exclusive running set. The mix never really drags throughout the four hours, and I'm particularly fond of hour number two. It's got a jazzy feel to it and probably struck a chord with me because of fond memories of New Orleans.

I couldn't find a comprehensive track listing for this particular mix, so I'm afraid you'll have to go into it blind. Rest assured, however, you'll recognize some classics in there. ;-)
