Cop again

As promised here's another Cop set, recorded at Silo a little further back in time(that's right, they had a vivid techno-program in those days ... and luckily this hasn't changed if you see who's playing nowadays).

Steve Cop, Silo 11.11.95.

steve cop

A few weeks ago a friend of Steve Cop mailed me to see if i wanted to rip some of his tapes ... didn't take me long to decide :)

In the early nineties Steve did a few productions for the R&S-label as Sonic Solution (ao Beat time, and Ravesignal II together with CJ Bolland) but most of you probably know him as a dj.
A few of his residencies: H2o, Café d'Anvers and Silo (Loop-parties).
I'll try and share some of this stuff with you in the next few weeks.
The links will also appear on a new blog, dedicated to Steve only, in order to keep this collection alive. (Steve's friend runs his new blog over here).

Here's an apetizer on what's coming:

Félicitations à Sebastian Tellier qui représentera la France au festival de l'Eurovision 2008, un excellent choix. Douze points de ma part ;)
En plus: en Anglais? Times are a changin'!

who's warming up?

Time to take a little step into the unknown. I'm posting a mix ... but i'm not sure who's playing.
The thing i like about it is that it was recorded at the very beginning of the night, probably by one of the residents (Deg?).

While most of you know Fuse as a techno-club, early clubbers know you can often enjoy some laid back dubby tunes at 10 o' clock, followed by some lazy house, smooth techno and as time goes by: the stuff people really came for :)

An early night with the unknown dj, somewhere in 1999.

One of te tracks at the beginning of the set is The Orb's "Blue Room", my god how i love that track! While doing some research on youtube i discovered some other Orb footage: here's a little piece of the live-show they did in Vorst Nationaal back in '95, the track is called "Towers of Dub".

master reese

Sometimes i have the impression dj's used to play more crowpleasers back in the days (for me that's "the nineties"). Or is this a false impression and did the unknown tracks become classics as time passed by?

A question worth thinking about!

Anyhow, lots of classics in the sets underneath: Arkest Blaze, Women Beat Their Men, Bassline and Goodlife (his own stuff), the inevitable French Kiss, ... but also plenty of forgotten tracks and things to discover.
