DJ Daddy – A Mix About Chilling
I had to post this mix as soon as i saw it. I have owned, played out and danced to 95% of the tracks chosen here by DJ Daddy. This period in house/dance music really was a golden age that shall never be repeated (nor beaten, in all probability). I’m all for progress and embracing the future, but these records represent a blossoming mindset that was taking place in the UK and spreading outwards to the world in an ecstacy induced hug that actually felt like it meant something.
DJ Daddy was there, he explains his reasons for this excellent homage to the era.
“I have based this mix on the Short Film About Chilling documentary shot back in the early 1990’s.
This film followed the Farm and various other DJ’s travelling to Ibiza to create a party holiday for the clubbers in the know. It has footage of the old style Ku club along with various other scenes from around the Island. I remember watching this when it was first aired over christmas and fell in love with the vibe being created. I did purchase a tape mix from hard to find Records which contained a mix of some of the tracks featured in the film, but it still fell short of what is a truely classic piece of clubbing history. So I decided to lay down this mix as my homage to the film”. – DJ Daddy
