The Q Chronicles, Volume 1: Let Me Take You Back
A retrospective, of sorts…
There was a party at DNA Lounge recently called “Class of ’94.” It featured Djs from back in the day, spinning songs from the way back, and word on the street was that everyone who ever was someone in the ‘Frisco rave scene came out of the closet to get on down. I couldn’t make it out because it happened to conflict with a certain poker night I’ve been organizing as of late, but it got me reminiscing as well.
See, I haven’t been buying a lot of records lately, but I have been spinning; going back and rediscovering a lot of my favorite old tracks. I love the joy found in hearing a track that makes you pump your fist in the air, shake your ass, or tap your feet. As of late I’ve really been obsessing on some of my favorite old 4X4, including Dj Dan’s Zipper Track, and this mix includes three versions of that track, all mixed into one long sequence. I think it’s a hoot.
As I finished up Let Me Take You Back I started planning a complete anthology of all my records, in mix form. Let Me Take You Back is the first installment in The Q Chronicles, a project I estimate will span over 16 mixes, and probably take until summer. While technically wanting (there are at least four off-beats I’ve found in this mix), it is extremely fun, and not all of these tracks made it on to mixes that made it on to this site. So take a download, and let me take you back through some of my old faves.
