"Best Served Chilled" an early mix tape recreated


Finally I have got around to recreating side two of my "Best Served Chilled" mix tape This is an early chillout mix tape I created back in late 1994 using just a Kam dj mixer and two portable CD players with no pitch control.. I painstakingly worked out the mixes relying on the LCD countdown of the CD players and using the faders to blend the tracks. One of the later tapes has mixed by "the Chillage Idiot" written on the inlay card.. A lot of these tapes were passed on to friends and are listened to in far away places like Australia, Ibiza etc..

Thanks to Carl for keeping these cassettes and for sending me copy's of the original inlay cards with the track listings etc.. I have yet to re hear the originals but from my best memory I have recreated the mix digitally and Again all these tracks bring back great memories of a period in electronic music when everything sounded fresh and they had a profound emotional and inspirational impact on me..

Some of you will probably be very familiar with the artists and the tracks on the mix, but for those of you who may be hearing these for the first time,I hope you enjoy the timeless quality of these tracks as much has I have over the years..
