It's another trip back to the 90's as we bounce back into 1996. A year packed with some huge anthems but for this episode I've tried to pick out some lesser heard tunes.

It's another trip back to the 90's as we head into the mid-decade decadence of 1995. The year when I started DJing on the regular in various bars and clubs in the town where I grew up. It was certainly an exciting year for the 17-year-old me.
I had an idea for a themed episode but I just couldn't make it work. This episode has ended up being one of those 'last minute' ventures as a result. I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out either way. Full track listing on my blog - retrohousemixtape.com
For this week's episode I have dug through my archive of old mixes and pulled out this set from 2009 consisting of Basement Jaxx goodies. This mix (performed on vinyl) includes tunes by the band, remixes they have done and a few remixes of their tracks by other people. Check out the full track listing on my blog - retrohousemixtape.com
It's a very different episode this week thanks to an old Instagram post from last year. I posted about a compilation that I had picked up called 'House Breaks Sessions' and I commented on doing a Breakbeat Mixtape at some point. A friend of mine, James from The Freefall Collective, promptly lent me a bunch of tunes to put together for an episode. Lots of breaks and big basslines in this ep!
