Id

Published: February 2006.

Well, it’s been about three long years since my last mix, and I’m glad to say that I’ve made a return to the virtual decks. I’ll leave it to you to decide whether that’s a good thing or not ;-). So, without further ado, here’s Id—a throwback to the anthemic 120-138bpm uplifting dance culture that infected the clubbing scene at the turn of the 21st century, where every emotion took a back seat to just Feeling Damn Good. So, close your eyes, soak in the music, and feel the rhythm take you away…
