BLAST FROM THE PAST: MIXTIFICATION


I’ve been meaning to digitize my old mixtapes for a long time and finally got around to it. The only actual tape–>digital transfer I’ve made in recent years was Headwarmers, which I put together back in 1997 (I’ll be making a copy of this available for free download eventually). The next volume, Mixtification (O’s Dub Vol. 7) came out in early 1998.

I have to say, it’s been fun revisiting this era though I’m also struck at how many songs I probably would never reprogram if I were to revisit it. Here’s the tracklisting and the songs I still ride for I marked with a +. I thought about marking songs that I absolutely would leave by the wayside but opted against it. (But don’t let that stop you from remarking!)
