Megamixes / Bootlegs

I know some of them can be a bit cringe, but anyone into the megamixes / bootlegs of yesteryear, when all you needed was some tape and a razorblade?

A few favourites of mine:

What you got? Let’s gooooooooo!

Loved the Double Dee & Steinski ones back in the day, taped them from Westwood’s show on LWR and played them to death.

I still like this one, think it’s aged better than some:

I love both of these
Not seen the TD one of Mix Max, I always wondered if the Zoom one was actually Krivit as apparently he didn’t remember it

Oh, that’s interesting. I’d not heard that story.
I wonder who Special G is who is credited on that and also Rock The House on T.D.?
Discopatrick’s site doesn’t seem to hold any clues.

Yeah that Disco Patrick site is awesome.

I’ve even got the book. It’s literally record porn for coffee tables.

Patrick posts some amazing clips on Instagram too. Always pulling these obscure breakbeat and megamix acetates out of thin air.
