Ok we all know this mix sounds very odd and not like we remember it. WHERE'S THE DAMN BASS? Here's a trick: Move the balance on your device's sound system over to the left or right. OMG THERE *IS* BASS! But you don't hear it--and some other parts like vocals--with the balance in the middle.

There's a good reason for this: one of the stereo channels is phase-inverted. There are peaks in the wave where there should be troughs, and vice-versa. HOWEVER, all it not lost: THERE IS A WAY TO FIX THIS!!

Pull the tracks into Audacity. Split the stereo track into left and right. Select the whole right waveform. Effects -> Invert. Bingo, you've just fixed the sound. Export-> MP3. Repeat for the other tracks, and you're done. You've just made this mix sound as awesome as you remember!

The entire tracklisting is shifted by one title on the CD cover. The mix actually starts off with "Casio's Theme" on title 1 and has only the accapella of Vince Ailey's "The Ride" mixed in during the intro beats. It then continues with Johnny Fiasco on title 2 and so on. In the last minute of "Life Is Changing" you can hear "Azymuth - Jazz Carnival (Space Jazz Mix)" being mixed in, followed by a fade-out to end the mix. That track is not credited on the cover and makes it effectively 17 tracks in total on this CD. To me it looks like the entire mix was taken from a live recording (mix tape?) which might also explain the rather low sound levels.
However the selection is quite good and reflects some of the hottest club house tunes in 1996. And yes, that Manhattan Project track is quite a mystery as there doesn't seem to be a corresponding release here on Discogs. Either it was titled wrongly or it has never been released and was only available as a promo. I guess only DJ Sneak knows.

Infectious, clever house riffed through with funk beats and jazzy trills. Guaranteed head-bobbing. As close to a live club session with DJ Sneak as you can get on your own stereo. His own track, "Special K," is just made to get happy to!
