    Here is some background to show you how abso-frickin'-lutely groundbreaking this mix was.
    Groundbreaking in the sense of "there is an era before it, and an era after it".

    1. Dimitri selected the tracks himself.
    Lex van Coeverden mixed this one in 1987: 12 All-Time Greatest Hits. However, this was a mix Lex made for Rams Horn. So to say: a mixed version of the unmixed double vinyl. The track selection was already done for him.

    2. Dimitri requested a record company to license the tracks.
    We had Turn Up The Bass Megamix 1990 by Koen & Addy. House Party - The Ultimate Megamix by TCM. They were both limited to what Arcade could license. Ben Liebrand did not have these limitations for his Grandmixes, but these contained tracks by Madonna, Michael Jackson and Prince that could not be licensed for a commercial release. Dimitri throws this principle upside down.

    3. Dimitri made this mix in one take.
    All mixes I just mentioned contained some studio trickery, such as added drum patterns, heavy editing, reshaped transitions. Dimitri's mix was just two (three?) turntables, a mixer and a recorder. That's it.

    4. Dimitri made a new composition out of existing music.
    Some months before , Various - Natural Elements was released. That one is also continuous, but only mixed together in the very end, and as such, a string of tracks. In Dimitri's mix, you cannot hear where one track ends and the next begins.

    5. Dimitri puts the deejay in foreground as the performing artist.
    This is the embodiment of David Bowie's statement: I am a DJ, I am what I play.

    Simply said: without Static Tracks, there would be no Fresh Fruit Cocktail #1, no First Works, no iT - The Album, no Strictly DJ Jean, no DJ Tiësto In Search Of Sunrise.

      One take mix. Not pre recorded in Ableton. Just a one take. Think about that. For a moment.

        One of Dimitri's finest moments and a milestone in DJ mixing compilations. The mix offers an incredible voyage and diversity in moods with all tracks making perfectly sense, done in his typical artistic way, set to inspire the mind and mesmerize the body and dance floor. His selection gives an interesting insight of the music that was played back then at the Amsterdam based RoXY, combining Detroit Techno, Chicago House, Dutch, Italian and English electronic gems and Belgium Ambient. If you take a closer look at the individual tracks many became sought after classics and underline his artistry and understanding of innovative electronic music in a time without internet and downloads. Personal favorites are In Sync “Storm", Wladimir M’s “Evil” and “Opus 303” by Le Mystere.

        Including the (intentionally) messed up track listing, the one take feel of the mix and the psychedelic artwork this mix definitely deserves a repress, because of it's beauty and the fact it was one of the first official DJ mix CD's ever released, at least in The Netherlands. An essential and timeless piece in the history of Electronic Music.

          A very rare, but awesome (mix)compilation by "good old" Dimitri Kneppers. Contains eclectic, timeless tracks which even nowadays proof to be timeless as they were meant to be. A classic album!
