This is part 2 of the Time Flies mix series. I recorded part 1 in 2010, and finally got around to doing part 2.
2005-2009 was a special period in DnB for me personally. I feel like the music really changed a lot (whether it's to your taste or not - I loved it). The quality of production started coming on leaps and bounds, and a lot of these records still hold up.
Picking what would go in this mix wasn't easy, and a lot of amazing music didn't make it. As in the first part, this is just a snapshot of what I was playing out at the time, and some of my favourites.
This is a vinyl mix I recorded in 2010. I'm thinking it's time for part 2 - 2005-2009!
Here's what I wrote about it at the time: “Time flies when you’re having fun, or so they say. I wanted to do a mix which is a snapshot of some of the D+B that I’ve really loved over the last decade. 2 parts in 2 hours, year by year. That’s about 5-8 tunes a year. It took ages just to get a vague idea of what I wanted on there. Then organising it by year, and working out what would work where. So many amazing tunes didn’t make it just for that reason. It’s not meant to be me going ‘this is the best music D+B had to offer’ its just a mix of some of my personal favourites. I hope you enjoy it.”
