    just off the top of my head, other favourite EMs of mine over the years are King Unique – absolute dirty driving belter, Nils Noa – filth and dirt again, Silicon Soul – twisted house with a unique style. more will come to me.

    First 10mins of Caspa was special then the bleeps drove me mad!!!
    Do like a bit of D+B so long as its not too heavy (prefer vocally)

    Got a DJ Heather Fabric which is still good today. Will check out the EM.

    Not heard of King Unique or Nils Noa 😳

    king unique are immense, i only saw them a couple of times but they're proper filthy house at its best. obscene, dirty, filthy, immoral, as they once put it. 🙂

    I've got a Annie Nightingale mix on minidisc by King Unique. Yeah, 'tis good. Only thing I've actually heard by them though.

    the one I played over & over & over til I practically wore out the tape, was the one from the Hong Kong handover weekend. Something about it perfectly encapsulated my feelings about it all & was a great mix of musical influences from both sides of the world. Top stuff. May have to do some more digging around now!

    Started listening to Gilles Peterson 1997 which I reckon I'm going enjoy. First 17mins were interesting and pushing boundaries for 97 🙂

    Just listening to this and err, proper filthy house FAIL, sorry. It's cheesy, momentarily went in the right direction at about 20 mins in (after an appalling start and a clashy mix at 16 mins), 28 mins or so is horrible commercial dance. 30 mins in and we have more nasty cheesy stuttering vocals over Abba synths. Not sure I can listen to any more. 🙁

    Got it downloading now, I have a couple of their 12"s

    Give Terry Francis's 1998 mix a go. Nice bass driven house. Good example of the sort of thing we used to play at the all nighters we put on in Brixton and Hackney in the mid to late 90s.

    Doesn't sound like the King Unique I got off Annie N. Probably sounds dated now anyway.
    Checked the Trentemoller one? (god was that really 2006?!)
    Optimo was good (just seen that was 2006 as well! I need to catch up!)

    The Goa Mix is bloody aweful, horrible. Oakenfold made one good record back in 1989 (Electra – Autumn Love (Future 4 mix)) and should have stopped then instead of going off on his ego trance stadium superstar trip.

    Nils Noa EM was spot on. Definitely listening to that again 😉

    it's class, isn't it? haven't listened to that for a while, but used to love it.

    Or skip wading through the dross in the EMs and give some of these a go, especially those with Terry & Nathan B2B.

    Dance music snobs are so hilarious!

    Bet you started at some comercial venue like Gatecrasher sweating all your glitter off too!

    I'm having way too much fun on the mixriot and will be for some time too.

    When scrolling to every suggestion above I keep noticing another must listen EM. Best link this year by far. Will never tire listening to this site.

    and thats only the EM's on the site……………

    Oakenfolds urban soundtracks are worth a listen too.
    Like Jackanory to dance music. Sounds gash I know but great for a journey.
    They really are worth checking out, especially The fall of the house of Usher.

    My first experience of partying (as we called it then) was 1989, Outer Limits in Bletchley, with Eddie Richards as resident, never been to Gatecrasher but I suspect they were quite different nights!

    Emotion Electric

    10 years later we were putting on nights in Brixton (Kult) and Hackney (Triology) and even in Normandy (v.messy)

    Pages of flyers

    I've pretty much retired now 🙂 Dub and Tom are still at it, as is Eddie (who must be 60!).

    Sorry If I come across as a snob, I guess were were trying to keep the same simple, underground vibe that we discovered in the 80s, it's pretty much gone though now, it's not new and exciting anymore I suppose.

    I've had a listen to the Silicone Soul and Nils Noa, both are ok, Nils is better though I reckon.

    The Tom Middleton one from 2001 is great btw, really good to chill to, if you can't get hold of his 'Jedi's night out' CD then this is a good alternative (any mix that includes 'The Way' is bound to be a winner).

    I posted this a while ago on another dance orientated thread. Check out the hardcore lives radio tuner. It has loads of radio station presets with an easy to use rip button should your ears decide they like what they hear. The stations I most often listen to for old skool are break pirates, pirate revival and remaniss (off line until the 2nd of August).

    Anybody know how to chop these mixes into smaller pieces once downloaded to burn to CD?
    I can burn as a data disc to use in my car player but would like some to use in my 'proper' CD.
    thanks
