Notice us both actually rapping on 9:46 ;-) in this mix.. we must have paved the way for many eurodance-type acts with similar 'unhealthy' raps about 'love' that came after that.

Download the (much higher quality) final from the JTHZ music listing page
This mix was kind of a break-through for us. It even got us some paid projects in club-deejay-world. Especially the parts where Open Your Heart switches to and from several other tracks, but also some overlays, cuts and word-jokes made it gain cult-status. It seems this mix just won't die, we still receive e-mails about it from all over the world! We think it's one of our most intense and weird mixes ever.. Notice Julius' vocals in this mix on 08:46 and Hens playing a tremendous piano-solo in the back on an old Casio-board ;-) The sound of this mix is somewhat 'boomy', this not only stems from how records used to sound back then, it's also because we had some calibration troubles with Maxell tapes on our Revox B77. Records (vinyl) and sounds used in order of appearance (includes all samples): The Second Day - Sandra Lovelife - MDMC Rock The Boat - Forrest Baby Talk - Alisha It Takes A Muscle To Fall In Love - Spectral Display Mr.Magic's Wand - Whodini Talk To Me - Chico Débarge Mr.Big Stuff - Loise Mason Loveride - Nuance A Love Bizarre - Sheila E.

Again, notice Julius singing some subtle bits in this mix on 8:35 and 8:42 ;-) You also hear some samples taken from ALF, the tv-series.

This mix is basically Julius and Hens freaking out with some of their most appreciated crossovers and records from those days, deliberately using synth-solo's and soulful parts with lyrics they liked. Check a pic of some original draft-notes. Records (vinyl) and sounds used in order of appearance (includes all samples): How To Pick Up Girls - Bobby "O" Tommy Gunn - Tom Browne Shoot Me Gino - Valerie Claire Suncity - Artists United Against Little Steven Let Me See Your I.D. - Artists United Against Apartheid I'O'U' - Freeez I Got Rhythm Import - The Broads Give Me Tonight - Shannon On The Upside - Xena (the Boss DrRhythm drumsequencer, with:) * - Human League * - Fun Fun If You Want My Love ("yous" sample) - Change PowerDrill - Goonsquad * - Vicki Brown(?) Doll Squad - Nile Rogers Temptation - The Flirts Passion - The Flirts New Toy (we thought) - Flirts some other Bob Orlando thing Boogie Nights - LaFleur Theme From Rodeo (Wilhelm Tell's Overture) - Doctor's Cat Heat You Up Melt You Down (Melt Down Mix) - Shirley Lites Takin' It Straight - Cori Josias Dr. Beat - Miami Sound Machine My Midnight Radio - Taffy (the italo synth-solo is also from that one!) Dancin' To Be Dancin' - Skyy (sample from Dubride - Nuance feat. Vikki Love is also in here) Dance Lover - Mikki Love's Just The Game - Peter Brown Love Game (and 'A Love Dub') - Pure Energy feat. Lisa Stevens Weekend - Class Action Relight My Fire - Dan Hartman Happy Song - Baby's Gang - the end-explosion and car are from some sound-effects albums - the end-scratch is from some actual damaging of vinyl and needle ;-) - the end door-slam is from The Look Of Love - ABC - the end-click is from a home-built pause-button These mixes are NOT copyright infringements, if anything they promote worldwide sales of the music we used for it. Be aware that we can't possibly get permission to release these mixes officially. Not only would it be far too expensive (one CD would easily contain over 120 different artists dropping their lines...), there's just no time and money to get that done for so many tracks. (Not for anyone!) If it wasn't for mixes like ours being played so much, many wouldn't even know the tracks in it. We claim copyright over some (re-)mixes, over parts of them, but have made and will make close to NO money with them. They are encouraging listeners to either like or buy music used in these (re)mixes. Without the actions performed on these records, this music just wouldn't be worth as much (we think each track gets better when (re)mixed!).
BETTER NOT LINK DIRECTLY TO THE FILES WE MOVE 'EM AROUND DUE TO TRAFFIC-LIMITS.. YEAH? As long as there's hosting space left and traffic limits aren't exceeded more short (re)mixes will follow in time, also some really really OLD ones... Ciao 4 now and enjoy ! (try them on headphones!)
