8-Track Mind, March 5, 2015

Today’s episode of 8TM (8-Track Mind) features tunes that have been on heavy rotation more than a decade ago. Sometimes referred to as progressive house’ golden age, the period around the millennium in which these records were released, were of outstanding quality. Both in production value and creativity. Progressive wasn’t really about a style or form of music but was more about attitude and diversity. It could sound melodic or rhythmic, techno-like or tribal, trancy or break-beat based. It didn’t really matter. Whether you were a DJ or a producer, there never was that feeling of being restricted by anything.

So here is Part One of a 2 hour showcase of that sound.Yes, I’ve broadcasted episodes that were recorded at that time, but while I was doing the crates (DJ slang for browsing records), I came across long forgotten tracks and so I decided to share them with you. Some well known, others oozing obscurity.

For instance, 4 tracks in this mix are records that I took back from an Australian tour. Made by great Melbourne based artists like Chris Fresh and Ivan Gough. Did I say 4 tracks? Prolly more as Anthony Pappa’s Therapy Dub of Angel by Goldrush is in there too. And Medway, Luke Chable…, I’ve always been a fan of the Ozzy sounds.

Space Manoeuvres ‘ Stage One is represented here too; a spacy (duh) breakbeat trip on the infamous Hooj Choons label that topped the charts at the time. Hard Hands, one of the first progressive labels, gives us ‘Take Me To The Sound’ by Darkglobe, while Prog Hero James Holden remixes Loki – NCYU.

Loads more so check it out at http://www.friskyradio.com. 8TM is on every 1st Thursday of the Month at 22:00 Amsterdam time.

  1. I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It’s beautiful worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web will likely be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    • Wow…That’s a huge compliment. Thank you so much! I found out that I didn’t see yours or any other comments here so sorry for the late reply.
      edit: Fixed it!
      Thanks Again! Harry
