An introduction

Hi folks, Chrissy Murderbot here. You may know me from being a DJ & producer, or from the two record labels I run (here and here), or it is also perfectly reasonable that you don't know me at all. I will accept that.
So I've recently decided to start this little mixtape blog as a personal project, and barring some huge disaster I'm going to post a mixtape a week, every week, for the next 52 (or so) weeks.
Some ground rules I'm setting for myself:

1) Every mix will (more or less) have a theme of some sort.
2) All mixes will be recorded live in one take (although I may do some post-production editing to get things down to a reasonable time).
3) No repeats—no song will pop up twice in this blog.

4) Likewise, no song that has previously appeared in a mix of mine published on the web (for instance, here) will pop up on this blog. Unless I get really lazy one week and post one of those mixes on this blog, which will probably happen at some point.
5) If it's a live set (i.e. somebody recorded me DJing at some party and gave me the audio and I'm posting it here), then rules 3 & 4 are out the window.

6) Every mix will be timed to fit on either a CDR or a cassette tape.
7) I'm open to requests. I might not pay them any attention whatsoever, but then again I might. Email me.

  5. This is absolutely fabtastic! Great mixes, great themes! Special thanks for both 1991 rave mixes -- made me feel about 20 years younger.
    May I propose making a New Beat or early EBM mix?

  10. I really appreciate you putting in the effort with this. So much to take in all at once. I literally deleted everything off my mp3 player and loaded a portion of these in it's place. There's really no excuse for kids these days to not get educated with so much to pick from on this site.

  13. Just out of chance I found your website and I must say... I've downloaded most of your mixes so I thought it was only fair to say thanks!!

    And I must say its nice to see somone from the USA with as much interest and understanding into the UK dance and rave scene... and then to go to the time and effort to put togeather top quality mixes of the era.

    Kind Regards; Lee :)
