Mike Dearborn Anno 1993

In 1993, Mike Dearborn visited the Netherlands and played a set on VPRO’s Dancing Zone – our favourite radio show at the time. I got a tape with Mike’s mix and a Mozart concerto on it for my birthday in that year.

The coolest part in the mix is where Mike just throws in the same track of the Acid Junkies twice after each other. This track was and is still legendary and apparently he liked it a lot as well 🙂 !!!

The tracklist is not complete, if you can add to it, please do so in the comments. I was to lazy to look up some things also, Most tracks are on Djax-Up-Beats. The Djax site has been dead for yeasr, but just got a brand new look this month.

  • 1 K-Alexi – Club MCM (Mind Control Music)
  • 2 Ron Trent – Altered States (East Side Mixx by Carl Craig)
  • 3 Mike Dearborn – Deviant Behavior (thnx Niek)
  • 4 Robert Armani – Circus Bells
  • 5 Robert Armani – Fire Alarm (thnx nils)
  • 6 Edge of Motion – Overvolt (thnx Niek)
  • 7 Acid Junkies – Some track from Part 1 or 2 (twice)
  • 8 Like A Tim (I think ??)
  • 9 Edge of Motion – Set Up 707
  • 10 ?
  • 11 Jeff Mills – Dark Matter (Reload, thnx nils)
  • 12 ?

Download this mix and start headnodding like back in the days.

    Hmm, some bits have disappeared in the process of digitizing. I will try to capture and upload again asap.

    3 Mike Dearbron – Deviant Behaviour

    For the rest I think this might be a good excuse to dust off those old Djax-up records, some of it sounds suspiciously familiar…

    een heerlijk nummertje om de ochtend mee in te luiden, word je tenminste een beetje wakker van

    zit tussen deviant behaviour en circus bells een gedelte van French van Deepside

  6. de kardinaal

    herstel, ik was even verward door een bekende x-mix waarin deze tracks ook gebruikt worden

  7. distorientation

    Mijn vermoedens waren juist: Track 6 is Overvolt van Edge Of Motion, van dezelfde plaat als Set Up 707. Had Acieed Ed dat niet moeten weten?
    VErder is track 2 de East Side Mixx van Altered states, Gemixed door Carl Craig.

  8. Acieed Ed

    Hmm, misschien wel – maar ik heb 1 of andere promo versie van die plaat + dat ik alleen maar set-up 707 draai. 🙂

    Je hebt ‘m zeker als white label met handgeschreven “Djax-Up 135” d’r op. Die heb ik zelf en lag rond 1996 veelvuldig bij oldschoolspecialist Frankey in Haarlem. Heb even discogs erop nageslagen: “The original release comes in Nitroglycerinecoloured (clear) vinyl. The so-called promo’s are 1994 reissues on black vinyl!”
    Altijd leuk om te weten.

  10. Acieed Ed

    Tja, zo gaat dat met die re-issues. Ik heb hem uit de VS, omdat er daar normale prijzen voor werden gevraagd.

    Die Acid Junkies track is trouwens Sector 9 (van vol 1). Nu de rest nog. Ik heb mijn Djax cd’s even aangezet, maar geen van die overige tracks stond erop.

    Maar om nou alle 12-inches te gaan luisteren. Nee – veels te weinig tijd voor, plus dat de draaitafels geteisterd worden door Soundmurerer en ouwe UR platen.

  11. Acieed Ed

    Checked some old Djax 12-inches. Number 8 is Clementine (Luke Slater) with Ram Rot. Not from the Cosmopolitan for Cosmos album, which also includes quite a couple of gems, but from Time Explored.
    I get the impression that Mike didn’t bring any records with him, and just got a pile from Miss Slegers, his label-manager at the time. That’s why it is all Djax..
