I recently found a whole bunch of mixes I did between 1992 and 1997 and started the long process of ripping the cassettes to mp3. As I work through them in no particular order I’ll put them up here for download. Remember, the sound quality isn’t great as they were all recorded through a mixer with no EQ and committed to cassette on a shabby home stereo…But what the hell, it’s that authentic 90s sound through and through, with a needle-skip and everything.
