KUCB Mix Tape – Liquid Hardhouse 2

This was a great techno/industrial tape; nice and fast/hard trance and acid. I used to love to play at high bpms to get the feet shufflin and bootys movin! One side was Sept 6, 1993. The other show is unknown (not so good labelling on my part!), I’d guess mid 93. It definitely was a different timeframe because I was using a different brand of cassette; which I bought in packs of 10 or 20 from my friend, Hardcore!…

I did two specialty shows at this time; one was Sunday from 1-7 before my gig at the club from 9-2am (that was a long work day! ). THe show was “Techno”–mostly techno and industrial. I also did a “Music of our formative years” show; basically 80’s electronics, goth and new wave…today’s oldie station! That was 3 hours a week show…

Electronic DJ Sets – KUCB (pre-Radio 1190) days

I am going through the Obliq archive and have uncovered a bunch of old mixtape cassettes from my DJ days at KUCB radio in Boulder (this is pre-Radio 1190,  I forgot about a lot of these and am enjoying them in a digital format.  I figured others may be interested as well, so I have posted them to my blog.  I have over 100 tapes, most which are unlabelled (doh!), I’ll continue posting as I find interesting ones.

The first 4 are posted here:

Late 1993:  Hardcare & Acid:

Jan 1995:  IDM/Techno:

Sept 1993:  Acid/Techno:

Dec 1994:  Detroit Techno:

KUCB Mix Tape – Hardcore & Acid

Here is a tape I found with absolutely no label (I was good at not labeling tapes, but I did have track names from an old playlist I found). The first part of the set is pretty hardcore with some acid thrown in. The second set ends up getting deep in acid while remaining pretty hard edged. I am dating this as Late 1993 because of some of the records were purchased on my Europe trip that summer, so it had to be after that.
