SIDE B: Made this Mixtape back in the ’90s when I was into Drum & Bass and Jungle. The recording was done straight to analog cassette, using only vinyl and no effects, other than mixer and turntable techniques. I used a lot of different records to create this mix, such as House accapellas, sound effects records and weird parts of different vinyls that aren’t Drum & Bass or Jungle related songs.
Funny thing, I didn’t know many people that were into it, except for one co-worker who hosted a Techno and Drum & Bass show over at Kings Borough College on WKRB 90.3, every Thursday night from 10pm-2am. I did a few guest spots, I even managed to do a couple underground Rave parties, before things started to getting shut down in Brooklyn.
The Mixtape was produced in a home grown studio of “Too Poor Motherf#¢kers Productions”, which was managed by me (deejaysoul) and DJ Loco (Gregory Antione).
FUN FACT: I use to go by the name “DJ Soultero” till I change it to “deejaysoul” in ’99.
