And this is it. The cave is back in Mark 4, but more about that when i post a actually mixed recorded from it.
Anyway back to this offering. Now I wasn't mixing or even into dnb when any of these tunes originally came out, the only way I discovered these gems is via the help of old skool tape packs, other DJ's online mixes, and tracks appearing on LP's that i brought for other reasons.
The aim of this outing was to create a mix that sums up what i feel it would have been like listening to back2back pirate radio sets in the early nineties on a Sunday afternoon just after lunch with some of the lads round.
No real back2back on this one just me going deep. Anyone in the know with old dnb music will know most of these, but if you're only used to mixes CDs and tape packs from the pre-96 period, you might find find a few you don't recognise. For example i am unaware of Origination - Music Takes Control & Mirage - Personal appearing on any commercial/bootlegged mix tapes. I could be wrong though.

Well it's been a while bit I'm still here and ready to drop another mix for your summer afternoons, recorded back in 2012 in the den mk3, this one is surprising in the fact that 5 years into the podcast these 90's dnb tunes haven't been been played yet.(Diggers Warning: There are some anthems in here). But with this mix it was worth the wait let me tell you. Heavy on the amen in the beginning before lightening up in the middle, then going back into the amen for the close.
NOTE: The den's activities have ceased for a bit(i know, obviously) while life gets a serious for a while, but I hope to present a brand new den set-up in 2015. And for the time in-between the den with be going roadshow, with recorded live parties and random mix sessions where possible. But never mind all that I've got at least 2 more already in the bank for '13 and will drop them over the summer.
The summer is here, Let the good vibrations ring out through your speakers.

BACK, ON TIME (relatively) AND ROLLING.
This one's another big mix. The theme this time is (was supposed to be) that an artist gets one shot (track) only in the mix, but i have to mention that Dev and his Alaska moniker is the one exception to the rule. but if you have as many Dev Pandya tunes as i have, it's too hard not to play two.
Again all tunes you won't have heard from the den before! Some liquid, some amen, a good looking tune, a little tech and a subvert central tune!!! But they're all rollers!!!
