Dark & Dirty House & Techno Mix – November 2003

This mix still sounds so fresh to me today, a proper mix of tough house, sexy yet dark vocals, pure acid, driving techno, and more.

Mix notes

This mix still sounds so fresh to me today, a proper mix of tough house, sexy yet dark vocals, pure acid, driving techno, and more. I clearly remember compiling it from the kind of tunes I’d play when I knew I had the “heads” in the club and we could all go on a bit of a journey… the final track frankly shows where such journeys usually ended up!

  3. Prophets Of Sound – Tide of Dreams (Brancaccio & Aisher Mix) – Dave Clarke-esque tech house
  4. unknown – Brainwashed (Call You) – Tomcraft did a version of this, this could be a remix of it although it doesn’t sound like one
  5. Futureshock – Late At Night (Switch Mix) – Funky and naughty, proper late night house music indeed!

  10. Joshua Collins – Reform (Rachael Starr Mix) – Tough, tough house music, pure after-party territory
  11. Pascal FEOS – Stream Electric – Trippy techno, sounds so great pitched down a little
  12. Phil Kieran – I Love You (Adam Beyer & Lenk Dub) – More big techno sounds, driven by a huge analogue synth
  13. Dave Clarke – Way Of Life – Just classic techno, so fresh decades on
  14. unknown – unknown – I’m so happy that this mix disintegrated into this unfathomable, genre-defying ending
