Make-Your-Own OLDSKOOL compilation

Post by dj_gyr8 » Fri Jun 08, 2012 4:32 pm

Hi,

Now everyone has an MP3 player, and a hardrive full of tracks...

What would be your ULTIMATE compilation of OLDSKOOL tracks.

Remember BITD you purchased a cassette tape in ourprice, it had 12 tracks on it, but only a few you liked. Perhaps you made your own 'best of' with your double tape recorder via high speed dubbing?

I know I got some tapes that were good, like the Strictly Underground albums, but now is your chance to make your ULTIMATE best-of...

Be interesting to see how many people pick the same tracks.

GO FOR IT, and list your ULTIMATE 12 track 'best of' below...

Don't just pick anthems, or what you think is 'cool', but honest and pick your favourite 12 tracks, imagine your stuck on a 12 hour flight with only your walkman and this 1 cassette tape containing your favourite 12 tracks...

KEEP IT OLDSKOOL!

Hehe! I used to make 120 minute compilation cassettes back in the days before vinyl ripping technology came into my understanding. Oh, and because I couldn't mix for toffee!

Here's a list of my favourite 12" oldskool hardcore compo-tape which I made long before iPods were around;

Side A

1/ DJ SS - Respect To The Following.
2/ Pandemic - Slammin' (Hellfire Mix).
3/ The Journey - Residential Area.
4/ The Hypnotist - Hardcore U Know The Score (Remix).
5/ The Brother Grimm - Field Of Dreams.
6/ The Ragga Twins - Mixed Truth.

SIDE 2

7/ Barrington Levy Featuring Rebel MC - Under Mi Sensi (Legalize It Mix).
8/ Hackney Hardcore - Dancehall Dangerous (Terrorize Mix).
9/ Shut Up & Dance - The Green Man.
10/ 2 Bad Mice - Hold It Down.
11/ Bass Construction - Dance With Power.
12/ Krome & Time - This Sound Is For The Underground.

(there were a few extras on my 90 minute tape, but I've whittled down the tracklist to 12 as mentioned).

Great thread.

As I wasn't around BITD, being 10 in 94, I will have to compile a list out of tunes that have a memory attached to them in a diff sort of way.

In no order

1. Skanna - This Way
2. Industrial - Time To Rock (Deepening)
3. SWEET FA 001 - Unknown Artist - Untitled (Side B)
4. Annie Lennox - Little Bird (N-Joi Mix)
5. Kurnel Knifekut & General Gun ‎– Theme From Daddy Armshouse
6. B-Free - Spring
7. Open Skies ‎– Deep In Your Eyes
8. Nino - Future Of Latin
9. Orca - Utah Mantra
10.Dance Conspiracy - Dub War (Chapter One)
11.Global Effect - Undercover
12.DJ Mayhem - Metrix (Remix)

So so many more, haven't even touch most of my White label obscures or even Jack Smooth or even DJ Seduction, but thats a start!

4. Burnin Up - Noise Oveload
5. Android - The Prodigy
