Historical Facts

  • One of the members of 'The Original' was DJ Pippi, well known for his residency at Ibiza's 'Pacha'
  • The man behind Hed Boys was Dave Lee aka Joey Negro
  • Pretty obvious; the Perfecto Allstarz were Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne. The track is a remake of a 1981 release by Pigbag.
  • The man behind Tinman is Paul Dakeyne; less famous in the mainstream but very influential DJ/remixer from mid-80.
  • The '18 Strings' track uses the guitar riff from Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. The usage of the sample was disallowed therefore the riff was reproduced for commercial release. The version on this mix is the original bootleg.

  • 'Young Hearts Run Free' was originally released by Candi Staton in 1976
  • Way Out West are Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren
on's enthusiastic response inspired Jam & Lewis to sign the group to immediately. They went on to earn 3 Grammy Awards.
