Most of my mixes, especially back in the first 6 years, were a scrapbook for me. They were there to remind me of certain emotions and states of being.
They were mnemonic devices to guide me on certain paths, for history and for ritual.
This was my favourite period of DJing. I almost got zero gigs because I was waaaay too abstract and outsider, and liked it that way.
This mix was the shining crown jewel of that period. After this my mystique became eroded as I became "Ottawa Famous". (tongue/cheek/check)
I was so proud of how the first half is all 60 bpm. I beat per second. Come follow me on a journey...
