*** as of December 29th 2016 my username was switched from "chris416" to "chrisnova777"

Thanks for visiting my discogs profile. for those unfamiliar with me, some background info -- Im of Scandinavian + English Anglo/Saxon descent (Turku Finland/Stockholm Sweden) + (Sheffield/Nottingham England) but I was born + have lived most of my life just north of Toronto, Canada

"Chris Nova" is not my real name its what i use as an alias on the internet, and it comes from the nick/alias/nickname i used back in the 90s on IRC chat #313 #house #rave, "Radionova", "nova9", "nova909" were my nicknames that i used i stole/took the name as my own after hearing the track "Whats New" by St germain (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Xr8ZksXZlI) on a brilliant mixtape mixed by DJ Simon DK Smith (DiY soundsystem) (visit here: https://www.discogs.com/group/thread/700251 for tracklist + download) it was winter/spring in early 1995 when i received that package of 4 cassette tapes in the mail from someone who send it to me from Leeds, UK - i was always very emotionally affected by music i heard on the radio + tv growing up in the 1980s.. but by the time i was 10 years old i was spending all my allowance on buyingmostly "dance" + hip-hop albums. i started going to raves in August of 1993 and left my love of hiphop behind, and got hooked on techno/breakbeat/jungle "rave" music. 4/4 House was always enjoyed by me from around 1991 (thanks to a local "all ages" house club called "Spotlight" in Newmarket that used to broadcast LIVE! to local radio) but my tastes switched back to 100% house in summer/fall 1994 and i left the rave scene in favor of house music events; by the end of 1994, i still went to some techno/rave events but i was mostly focused on 'housier' side of things;

back around summer 1995, i was one of the first users in Canada to have Broadband cable modem internet because i happened to live in the testing location for "Rogers Wave" ( https://web.archive.org/web/19961113232824/http://rogerswave.ca/ ) and i learned HTML just so that i could build my first website which was called "GetSorted.com / Soulpower Enterprises" the whole reason i created this site was to make a place that was all about trading mixtapes via mail packages (long before MP3 was invented) we posted lists of cassettes and organized trades via Email: https://06165062160021244642.googlegroup.com/attach/fc0bb64803398328/CYBRFREQ.TXT?part=0.1&view=1&vt=ANaJVrFmx2bIDSNhaYxR7nveDNIjmQ0a5kft1yzjm051upGikEyyYW7ZiQmvbVtbEdCfSTqSWhUyUWWg5ZvehV23e-OWK3r3TeUJAQLLHLFN6PkQ6tFlmCQ (https://06165062160021244642.googlegroups.com/attach/fc0bb64803398328/CYBRFREQ.TXT?part=0.1&view=1&vt=ANaJVrFlN5ObKnE-Cg1ZOzQevia7ePQdNqGRgk8REUtI1RD1crLxLd0ZT0C-9UwtxzhC28YYKr2O_rVGu7Z_TSRgR3vvGYEsgrKfJTNqtVsVQ8gkdKfbxpU a list of my tapes that i posted to a newsgroup on June 1st 1996) back then i idolized the djs so much i never even thought that i could actually become one and actually learn to mix but i eventually bought my first silver technics turntables in spring of 1997 that i still own to this day. ironically one of the most influential tapes on my tastes came from my girlfriend Dee Thornton (RIP) in 1995, who had gone on a trip to England to visit family, and recorded DJ EZ from FREEK FM 101.8 - that tape went on to become one of my favourite mixtape of all time!! recorded i think in her hotel room, back in early 1995, the tape was stolen from me around 2003 or so? from my apartment in Toronto (toronto people suck) id give anything to hear that tape again! if anyone has any pirate radio tapes from summer of 1995 with Dj EZ or DJ Operator, please share with me;)

tharobster; the wildpitch mix appealed more to a garage/club crowd while the other mixes appealed moreso to the rave techno event crowd; theres no need to compare the two as they arent really even in the same category of appeal
