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.....
