    STUDIO MIXES

    TO POST, DOWNLOAD, DISCUSS OR REQUEST PIRATE RADIO SHOWS WHICH WERE RECORDED LIVE, YOU CAN USE THIS FORUM. ENJOY YOUR STAY :):):)

    I thought maybe it's about time we started to post mixes from our old pirate radio tapes, to bring back that original old pirate radio & warehouse vibe of yesteryear. All mixes are welcome from throughout the 80s to 1993. All styles, but especially any shows on pirate radio from 1987-1992.

    I've started the proceedings from a Fantasy FM show in 1989, converted from a tape. The mixing isn't all that to be honest & damn right sloppy at times, but it's all about the tunes at the end of the day. Also, there are cut-outs as I did edit out DJs talking, jingles etc at the time. I think the tracklist is ok, if I've left any out, please feel free to edit or point out. Thx & Enjoy :)

    I still have the very famous DJ Hype sets from Fantasy FM, including the one with the L.F.O. mix.

    I don't think anyone needs to ask which mix I mean.

    Also, Sheffield had a pirate radio station also called Fantasy FM. When I was up there in 92/93 the mates I knew from there did a weekly spot. (DJ Ox and Mc Cunny) I was lucky enough to go and record the whole show with them, making billions of requests and answering all the phone calls from the listeners. I still have the tape of that as well. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh memories LOL.

  • pramster over 11 years ago

    Thanks Teknonutter!! Have downloaded, will listen to soon...in the meantime...

    Here's some mixes to start with from a big box of tapes that I recently unearthed from storage, and thought I had lost along the way!

    There's a couple of shows from Centreforce FM in 1989, one from Danielle & Rochelle, the other from Players Kenny. The play-list from the sisters is a bit more on the commercial side, but it does really show how the DJ's back then were a lot more open-minded than they are now...how many DJ's play house & hip-hop in a set nowadays? Well it was 1989, and the year for hip-house anyway!

    Luckily, I didn't edit out their voices on these two tapes (which I have done on most of my other ones), as that makes it more of a nostalgic experience, for me at least...those were mad, crazy days, the pirates being very much part of the rave scene...you can hear Kenny give out the phone number for one of the Energy raves ;-) Enjoy...more to follow shortly!

  • langster over 11 years ago

    No tape player to use to convert any of mine ATM.

    It's not the radio shows I am bothered about, it's the 250 original hardcore/jungle/techno/house sets I have ranging from 1988-1994/5 and the 100 odd house/trance sets I have from 1995-2000 that I am bothered about converting :(
  • Tkon over 11 years ago


    langster
    It's not the radio shows I am bothered about


    In my opinion though langster the radio shows were better than the sets,they usually had a better range of tunes and a lot of tunes you didnt hear anywhere else,i've about 1'000 sets from various clubs and raves and they mostly have the same tunes,so thanks again Teknonutter for starting this thread,should have done it myself lol

    langster edited over 11 years ago
    I am not dissing the radio sets, just stating that I want my other sets done first. Seeing as they are all original they will be going on ebay as soon as I get them converted. My original Top Buzz @ Fantazia Second Sight sold for £60 not so long ago so even if they get £10 each I will be more than happy.

    Hmmmmmm, I don't find that with mine. Maybe though I prefer the tapes as I was at 90% of the events that I have tapes from and they bring back amazing memories for me, also the diversity of them helps. And I have pretty much completed or own my wantslist, there are only maybe two tunes I cannot name that I want to buy.

    Nah some of the progressive house and funky house stuff from 95-97 was amazing IMHO. It also signalled the real end of my clubbing life as I pretty much stopped going out to what I would call clubs in about 96/97. I liked the clubbing years after years of illegal parties and massive events of 40,000 idiots and mad club nights where the place was rammed beyond capacity. It was a refreshing change for me. I have only been to maybe 5 or 6 clubs in the last 10 years.

    Thats fair enough,i didnt live in England so i didnt go to the events but i did dj here in Dublin at the time and i still stand by my point about event tapes not being as diverse tunes wise as radio shows,i have tons of sets from all the big name djs and for most of them you cant tell the difference between one or the other,all the same predictable anthems and very rarely hear an obscure b side which tended to be the better tune
  • langster over 11 years ago

    I would agree with the big name sets from big raves like Fantazia, Raindance, Dance Planet, Obsession etc, but the Universe sets were extremely diverse, especially when they started having about 20 different areas of music. But mainly I mean sets from local club nights, especially my local area of Plymouth. There were so many different promoters using either the Warehouse or Academy (the two main clubs) and they were in constant rivalry with each other but to the benefit of the ravers. They became extremely diverse with their styles, especially between 1990 and 1993. They each had more than one room and the styles varied immensly. I remember seeing Sasha in 1991 on the main stage followed by the mentalist hardcore nutter that is Chocci with Mr C in the second room playing mad techno followed by some acid house style dj. Honestly the diversity in the club sets from smaller local clubs, especially from the 88- 91/92 years is so diverse they are almost like radio sets in the way that they were always very experimental and definitely not pre-rehearsed or genre specific, and aside from the odd one or two tracks that pop up consitently, they are all amzingly different.

    When I eventually get them ripped I will post a few of my favourite sets on here so you can all have a listen.

    Exactly how it should be, tbh in my experience had a much better time at smaller venues than the big ones (although there were a few that were just incomprehensibly awesome! Especially 1989/90)& had more of an intimate vibe.
  • pramster over 11 years ago

    Here's another set I've found in this box of tapes I've recently found...this time from Green Apple from 1989 I believe...the DJ's are Shabazz & Nicky Taylor, which now don't ring any bells with me...

    Anyway, typical of the era, this is actually quite a balaeric set...there is no mixing, and i seem to have kept all of the voice-overs.

  • OrangeRider over 11 years ago

    Right, as per normal my timing is rubbish and I have joined this thread way too late.

    TEKNONUTTER, your timing in starting this thread is perfect because after two second hand tape decks, one new sound card, too many cries for help, hours of frustration and months of false starts I have finally got up and running with the project to digitising my pirate radio tapes.

    To say I'm excited is a little bit of an understatement...:)

    # one is digitising itself as I type. It is A-Z on Pulse FM

    Well, how did you sort it out in the end?
  • OrangeRider over 11 years ago

    I went to PC World, purchased a boggo sound card and fitted it myself. Put my machine back together and hey presto it worked!

    Bit of a miracle if you ask me. But technology was on my side last weekend as I managed to sort out my wireless issue, without the assistance of a voice sitting in a call centre in India.

    The tide has turned cos mediafire has just informed me that it will take 10 hours 10 minutes to upload side a of the A-Z tape.

    WTF is all that about??

    Regardless, I'll keep digitising my tapes and will post up here en masse...

  • pramster over 11 years ago

    Does anyone here have any mixtapes from Smart Boys FM?

    If so, I would love to hear them.

    I don't think that they were around too long, anyway definitely in 1990, and they were one of the first London pirates who consistently did amazing mixes...I think they even used 3 turntables, and certainly used effects boxes a lot for adding echoes to voice-overs etc.

    I remember the style was quite breakbeat and dubby, ie they used to play stuff like like Depth Charge, Renegade Soundwave, The Moody Boys, Bonesbreaks EP's etc etc.

  • pramster over 11 years ago

    Thanks mate you're on a roll! Anything played on fantasy always brings back the memories. Innocence FM they started out playing some brutal stuff.. Pulse FM Jinx - damn, how could forget this DJ? Anyway, won't be able to d/l just yet, but when I do, I'll give some feedback :)

    Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with my tape deck, so haven't been able to do any conversions of late, need a new soundcard anyway :(

    you're on a roll!


    Yes, I am but I think you know what challenges I had along the way :) Similar to the ones you're having (duff soundcards).

    Fantasy for me was the daddy. I was obbsessed with Pulse FM and used to drive up to London and record the shows whilst sitting in one of the parks getting stoned - excellent fun.

    Innocence FM they started out playing some brutal stuff
    Fully agree - I'll post a Helium tape that cuts to Innocence for the last 15 minutes. Reminds me of the sounds you would hear in a Spiral Tribe / Bedlam rave. Crusty!

    Anyway have fun downloading.

  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    The Bug Kann track is Triple XXX

    That Space Work track is the bollox, I've definitely heard it before..
  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    The New Era track is 'New Era - New Era'.

    Btw how could Psycho D not know the Analogue Bubblebath EP? Shame :(
  • OrangeRider over 11 years ago

    TEKNONUTTER - Thanks mate for the tune id's - most of the tunes in that Psycho D tape are good, the DD Hass is one of all time favourites.

    All tunes that man dropped are as hard as fuck - he must have had good contacts in Belgium :)

    Strange innit? Especially seesing as he plays it after talking about not knowing it...

    Lol! Exactly. Perhaps one of the other djs came in later & gave him it to play, or he had it but never knew what it was called.

    OrangeRider
    All tunes that man dropped are as hard as fuck - he must have had good contacts in Belgium :)

    Apparently, he was good mates with the Automation boys, & you know they produced some wicked stuff. I remember him playing a wicked set back to back with the Automation boys at the roller express. He did like his Belgian, Dutch, & German stuff back then. Kind of stayed away from the cheesier end in general. Together with Anton, Dizzie Dee (both on ChillinFM), Jesse Jay & a few others. Helium played on Chillin aswell before moving to Pulse in 91. PulseFM was born from ChillinFM btw.

    didn't know that - when did PulseFM all kick off then? The first time I heard it would have been September 1991.

  • OrangeRider over 11 years ago

    Here is another one...DJ Stomp - Pulse Fm (17021992). Tracklisting as follows (any help with the gaps would be great)

    http://www.mediafire.com/?mwzzbkweykc

    Timebase - Fireball
    ? (wicked, wicked tune whatever it is)
    DJ Seduction
    ?
    2 Bad Mice
    Rough Justice
    ?
    Razor Boy & Mirror Man
    ?
    ?
    ?
    Outlander - Vamp

    Apologies to one and all for all the "?" - the mix isn't that obscure - perhaps, next time I will use our friends over at tuneid.com :)

    Enjoy!
  • jokinla over 11 years ago

    Ironic, you guys were just talking about Automation. That's your second tune, wicked wicked indeed. Automation- Ups and Downs.

    when did PulseFM all kick off then? The first time I heard it would have been September 1991.

    Around late summer ie late Aug as far as i'm aware, I remember listening to Helium & Anton on Chillin plugging their new, spin-off station around July/August 91. Although Nick Power who owned Music Power Records in Harringay & Ilford had something to do with it aswell, if I'm not mistaken. So you probably heard it very soon after it was launched.
  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    16:06 = Q-Bass - Hardcore Will Never Die (E Type Remix)
  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    The one after Q Bass is >>

    Blame - Music Takes You (War Mix)
    then
    Urban Shakedown - Some Justice
    around 30:00 = Escape From Brooklyn - The Rhythm (Mental Atmosphere)
    Then it sounds like mix of "Axe Corner - Tortuga" which I can't think of but might be a different track altogether?   around 43:00 it's X-E's - Vol. One - Rollercoaster (the one before Outlander "Vamp")

    thanks guys for the tune id's - much appreciated.

    Another couple of tapes will be ready for this weekend.

    I think the track after "Sweet Harmony" on the DJ Helium mix is from the Oral B EP. But I am not sure.

    edit: Hmm..maybe not. It sounds really familiar. I'll have to go back home and check.

    The track after 2 Phase EP is True Devotion from True Devotion / Ghetto Boys

  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    Hiya m8. terry123 is a guy who was in the thick of all things acid house & oldskool hardcore back in the day, & a dj on Pulse 90.6 FM. One of the leading breakbeat, hardcore, techno pirate stations north of the river. Big welcome m8, hope to hear lots of stories & missing links from you :)

    ahhh dj Jinx - Alan, one of the best dj,s on pulse fm plus he use to be behind the counter with chris and nick power at music power records!

  • AtomicCow over 11 years ago

    Ok. So that track that I thought was on Oral B EP is not on that EP. My other hypothesis is that it's something on Strategy Records. Probably The Dreamaster, I should know, I have two copies but I haven't listened to it in a while so not sure.

    what became of A-Z? I used to make a weekly pilgrimage up to London to record his show whilst "relaxing" in some London park.
  • terry123 over 11 years ago


    [quote=TEKNONUTTER][/quote]

    you also had dj buzby too! but one of the best memmories was when FRANK DE WULF walked in the shop completely out of the blue
    with Jazzy M from vinyl zone bragging about the white label vinyl
    promo of CHIMES - ORBITAL that hed copied from a cassette tape!

    oh-zone records was owned by Jazzy M - now of Ministry of Sound!

    Nick Power and him were always in competition as to who had the better shop and the best cliental...
    all in good taste i must add!

    i was a paint sprayer at the time and painted his BMW for him(jazzy m) only coz he promised me a copy of the white promo press of CHIMES!...

    Frank de wulf came over to promote THE TAPE, a track he paid kenny ken heavily to play at the later warehouse rave that was called WONDERLAND in 1991!

    incidentally i knew kenny ken from old reggae sound system days alongside fabs and g-rider!....

    caught up with kenny at WAX RECORDS ( i think..been along time now) in DALSTON 89-90 where he teased me coz he thought i fanceid DJ RAP from Fantasy FM..lol (actually - i did! hehe) but i think they had something goin on!( dont quote me on that..LOL) but getting back to what i was saying about kenny, he was more hardcore than techno and he specifically came to the shop to give me a copy of WILDTIMES REMIX - DERRICK MAY! 89!....

    hows this for a starter of oldskool memms! lol

    i wasnt just on pulse fm - in 1984 was on SOLAR RADIO with DJ FOGGY who sadly passed away recently! i was more of a selector rather than a presenter!...

    great times i can tell ya! (time to get the kleenex out) lol
  • TEKNONUTTER over 11 years ago

    What became of all of them for that matter? I saw nutty jim on another oldskool site somewhere about 5 years ago. No mention of Helium anywhere, DJ Sky was on Eruption 101.3 fm for awhile a few years back. Jinx, Helium, A-Z, Jaydee, Funky Junkie etc etc
  • terry123 over 11 years ago

    lost track of those boys years ago im afraid! it was kinda hard for me coz im was an acid house dj on a blimmin hardcore pirate station! lol

    He's a member of this forum btw. Periodically pops in every now & then, hasn't been here for awhile though, nice chap.
    Damn, I used to listen to that aswell, but in my much younger electro, funk, hiphop days!

    R.I.P. & respect to the man aswell.
  • terry123 over 11 years ago
