Mickey Finn Tape Id and Tune Id

Hello there,

I am trying to track down a tune that was on an old Mickey Finn tape I had from around 1993/94, problem is I lost the tape years ago so I need to identify the tape before I have any chance of identifying the tune.

So the tape was Mickey Finn and the best way to Id it is probably from what the MC said right at the start of his set. The MC say's something along the lines "any man caught f**king with the crew, will be taken around the back and shot, with the 9, the milli" or something similar to that. I remember on the tape the original version of Pennywise was played and also Cloud 9 'You got me burnin', although I can't remember if that was on Finn's side or the other side which was by a different DJ but it should give an idea of the time, must be 93 I reckon.

Anyway, if anyone knows the set please let me know, then at least I have a chance of knowing the tune, which was a piano tune about half way through the set.

Cant really help with the tape, but it sounds like Bassman was the MC.

This is a longshot as the first one I found, but you never know! ... gham-1994/

Thanks for the response, I took a listen to the link but it's not the tape unfortunately.

I put "Mickey Finn 93" into Youtube this morning and was scanning through the sets that the search brought back but no luck.

I reckon I will know the tape straight away from the first couple of minutes because of the MC.

Is there a good archive somewhere with lists of DJ sets from back in the day? Somewhere that would list recorded Mickey Finn sets from 93/94?

On my tape the other side had a set by Ned Ryder, but I am not sure if that is how the original event tape came out or if that's just how the person I recorded it from had taped it.

Cozza, you da man!!

That's the tape, I recognized it instantly the moment Mickey Finn's set started, when I heard the MC it brought it all back, I haven't heard this set in about 20 years, I used to rinse this tape.

The track that I was after?

Well it was Bonny & Highlander - Summer Breeze.

I could never Id this back in the day, just had a look on Discogs and it's a cheap one which is an added bonus. Usually when I Id a track I have been after it's mega rare and expensive.

Thanks for that it's appreciated.

I bought myself a copy of the 'Summer Breeze' tune for a fiver, touch.

Can I be cheeky and ask if anybody has a good quality mp3 of the Inta Warriors 'Dreams Of Heaven' track they could upload please, loving this track as well.
