Both track #3 Hearbeat by Sick & Destroy and #13 Station by Jason oS are from the old Digibeat Music catalog, and are available now from Omni Music on the Digitized Part 1 compilation. That's a good comp, a good selection from the Digibeat catalog, and is worth a look & listen if you like Hearbeat and Station.

There's a bunch of Mostvaluableplayaz in this mix: tracks #4, 8, 11, and 12. Track #8 Black Velvet was recently re-released by Fanu on a compilation called Old Tracker Stuff available on his bandcamp. As an old tracker myself I'm really happy to see Fanu acknowledge his early work, and was happy to pick up Old Tracker Stuff a couple days ago. I doubt I had any influence on the decision, but this is exactly what I had hoped to see happen when I mixed MTT 252. I think a lot of the old late '90s tracker drum & bass still holds up well today; Black Velvet certainly does.

Some of the mixing in this is a bit more loose than I'd like, particularly the transition from #10 A Wonderful World to #11 Fall. I hope it doesn't distract from the music too much. Anyway I'll be back with another mix next week. Thursday evening, my usual time. Electro I think. 'till then.
