I still remember the first time I heard a Technasia track, it was “Future Mix” in a mix by DJ Hell I had recorded from a radio show called “the 12 inch show” on the now defunct Slam FM back in probably 1998.
The minidisc I recorded it on was lost along the way, but I still vividly remember some of the tracks that were in the mix. Among it were Cubango by Jeff Mills, Yo Yo by Basement Jaxx, Moskow Diskow by Telex and Future Mix by Technasia. The titles I off course learned on later hand.
One of the tracks that stood out the most for me was Future Mix, after learning what track it was it must have cost me at least another year before I actually found the vinyl somewhere. I was listening to it the other day and it totally took me back and made me reminisce about the past.
If someone who reads this might have made the same recording of DJ Hell, I doubt it, but please let me know, you would make my day.
UPDATE: A little birdy told me that this set was actually recorded in Paradiso in Amsterdam and aired on the 12″ inch show on New Dance Radio back in 1998 or 1999. Still couldn’t get my hands on a recording though, but hope this gets me a step closer.
