Pearsall – Street Dreams

streetdreams

This mix is unambiguously a classics set – pretty much all of the tunes featured are stone cold anthems from jungle’s golden years of 1994/1995. There’s always a risk when using a lot of well-known stuff that people will have heard it all before and won’t be interested, which is why I have spent a lot of time thinking through the progression of the mix to keep interest levels high, building in peaks and troughs, rollers and Amen tearouts, light and dark, before concluding with Foul Play’s euphoric VIP mix of ‘Renegade Snares’. Hopefully I have succeeded! I suppose I could have spent some time (and money … ) assembling a set of more obscure stuff, but sometimes the obvious route is the best one to take.
