As an electronica neophyte, this thread is an education! 81 posts in and I finally come across an album I have. I, too, have a lot of new additions to my library and a whole lot to explore. Thank you all for sharing your knowledge and love for these artists.

Great listen! Darko writes about him
Some great tracks in here! Right now I’m working on getting all of the great Global Underground mixes in to Roon. Some of the early ones are forgettable, but Paul Oakenfold’s 1999 New York mix is a brilliant snapshot of what was still pretty much non-commercial music at the time. One thing I’m loving about going back through these is also the fact they were all mixed on vinyl - and you can really hear that some of these tracks were well-worn before getting used for this recording.
Talking of Paul Oakenfold, this is one of my personal favourites from back in “The Day” (or should that be night).
It’s also smack, bang full of classic “Doof Doof Choons”
“Gamemaster” still takes me “there”
