This is a mix we did for Eddy Temple-Morris on XFM for our album promo of 'Raise The Devil' which was aired on his show on 11.11.11.
The concept was to mix 16 tracks, one for each year we have been together as Aquasky starting from 1990-2005. These were all tracks we use to play in our DJ sets over the years and it logs the progression of Drum and Bass from the early rave era, thru to the jungle era, the intelligent era, the tech step era and finishing on a Drumstep track by us from our album. We added ours as the 17th tune... going forward to next year... or something like that!!! Its nearly 2012... Oi Oi!!!
The spec by Eddy was a 10 min set with tracks that mean something to us... we felt this was a good concept as it shows our personal musical progressions as DJs from 1990 onwards and also the music that was inspiring our productions as well back in the day when we were making d&b... leading up to a new d&b inspired drumstep track from 2011.
Hope ya like it...
