One Night At Equinox '92-93'

One Night at Equinox '92-93'
During 1992 and 1993, myself and friends got a little disillusioned with clubbing in the Capital and wanted something different. So, we would make the 3 hour car journey on a Friday night from Folkestone in Kent to a small club on the outskirts of Souldrop, Bedfordshire.
Millwaukes or "The Fun House" as it was known, was one of the first legally all-night licensed clubs in the UK, hosting regular events from Helter Skleter, ESP and of course Equinox.
What was great about those nights was the consistant and amazing DJ line up's. With it being centrally located, it would capture both Midland/Northern based DJ's heading south and London DJ's heading north.
This mix is my homage to those very special nights. That legendary 25k Cerwin Vega + 5k Sub Base sound system, that would pummel your ribcage with its earth shattering sub base. The combination of jungle rhythms alongside 4 the floor piano bangers and techno stompers. The intimacy that was created by the DJ being so near to the crowd... and what a crowd and what a vibe.....
All hail "The King Of Clubs".
Of course, this mix isn't a comprehensive list, its simply tracks that I remember, tracks that got played by some of my favourite DJ's during my times at Milwaukees, Dj's such as Ratty, Tango (RIP), DJ SS, DJ Clarkee, Ellis Dee, Top Buzz, Slipmatt, Fat Controller, Mastersafe and so many others.

Dance '91

Dance '91 
This mix follows on from Corfu '89...... Astoria '90.... and now Dance '91.
As well as attending nights/clubs in the capital throughout 1991, we would also go to events closer to home... in particular, The Pure Organisation Dance '91 all-nighters at The Angel Centre in Tonbridge, Kent.
Like many of the large raves of this era, sports/lesiure centres were perfect to provide cavenous rooms that could handle 40k-50k Turbosound Systems together with the most amazing lazer light shows, and The Angel Centre was a classic example.
This mix is dedicated to those nights.....

Astoria '90

Astoria '90
Following on from the illegal parties that i would attend after Corfu '89.... myself and the clan began to venture into the capital, and it was Astoria that we would find our first legal club night with FEVER 'The Tenerife Reunion' followed by Fantasty FM all-nighters in 1990.
As anyone who went to the Astoria, be it.. The Trip, Crazy Club, Orange.... will testify, this venue was the real deal..... starting with the enormous que that would snake round the back of the building.... making your way up the steps, pass the foyer and onto the downstairs floor... showered in lazers and bass. Of course the famous upstairs tables and orange lantern lights will be forever engrained in our memories.....
RIP The Astoria.....

Corfu '89

Corfu '89
Mixed By Original Gidman
It's the summer of 1989, myself and my record collecting brother from another... Gary Coveney are on a weeks holiday on the island of Corfu. Little did we know how instrumental to our musical tastes this week in the sun would be ?
We left London Gatwick Airport Hip-Hop 'B-Boys'..... and returned 7 days later 'House Music' aficionado's.
Finding a little club called 'THE WAG' would change everything...
The DJ's playing a mix of Hip-Hop, Acid, Techno and House. we were hooked....
We would return every night, dancing from the momoment we walked through those doors to the moment the house-lights came on !!
This mix represents those nights.... the sounds and vibes we experienced, a moment in time filled with youthful wonderment, joy, and excitement, which would leave me with an eternal love of H.O.U.S.E. music.

The Tomorrow Peoples After Party 2078

Originally Broadcast on 14th May 2017 as part of the 'IMAGINE The After Party' Radio Shows for the 'Spring into Summer Sessions 2017'
"The Tomorrow Peoples After Party 2078"
‘The Year is 2078 and Earth is no longer the only planetary world supporting life. Over the last 20 years humanity has been steadily reaching beyond the orbit of Earth, with a main transportation terminal now based on the Moon – ‘ZERO LUNA’.
To celebrate the successful Terraforming process recently completed on Mars, the International Space Committee (ISC) has decided to hold a party for all those employees, guests and dignitaries that are currently based on the Moon, as well as the scientists and first wave of inhabitants that are about to set sail for Mars..
After the post-cryogenically frozen ‘Happy Mondays’ had performed their last song of the main event, rumours of an after-party began to surface. As with all corporate large scale events it’s the smaller parties that are the best, the ones off the beaten track, the ones that continue into the small wee hours, the ones that you need to know someone…. who knows someone… who knows someone. …..and this night was no different. Over in one of the outer storage bays off Hanger 133 of Sector 12, a low rumbling of bass could be heard. This was the ‘Tomorrow Peoples After Party’… featuring a recently smuggled-in refurbished ‘Eskimo Noize’ Sound System Rig ….
‘Zero-G Flotation Tanks’ and a glass roof that offered up one of the most awe-inspiring views of Planet Earth, as you chilled and danced to Interplanetary Bass, Electro Beats, Space Funk and Cosmic Vibes - brought to you by guest DJ Original Gidman'.
