Excursion on the Version

Long ago (when the world was young) there was a Beats International remix by some unheard of guy called Norman Cook that had the greatest title: Excursion on the Version. DJ Lurk made an “official” mixtape, as opposed to all of those TDK or Memorex hand-labeled ones he had been giving out for years. This was the first semi-pro production that was handed out like candy after hand making these covers and real-time dubbing over and over again on a single Panasonic boom box. Here’s the cassette insert:

Uplifting dance / trance mixed in 1999. Big shout-out to the Mermaid Cafe in Las Vegas, where DJ Lurk had a Thursday night residency for over a year. You will hear early BT, Peter Rauhofer as Club 69, and the unmistakeable sound of the late 90’s high-BPM scene.

More energetic awesomeness from before the apocalypse that was the year 2000. Apologies for the blown-out bass on both Side A and Side B; DJ Lurk still has the original media and will attempt to find a tape deck to remaster both of these MP3s.
