Been cleaning out my house and editing my decade over the past few weeks...
Unearthed this cassette from high school days and transferred both sides to mp3 in two installments for you. Being that the source is a 15 year old cassette, the quality isn't exactly crystal clear but it being a little fuzzy is kind of part of the charm of listening to cassette in the first place. Side B sort of melts after about 38 minutes but...like I said, 15 year old cassette.
DJ Venom is a Providence-based legend. My first ever experience in going to clubs and hearing House music were at his all-ages Sunday School party at the space formerly known as Club Babyhead and various other parties and events he threw in the Providence and surrounding New England area in the mid-90's. I'd kill to still have any of his other mixtapes in tact, especially his epic house mixes. This tape was from the earliest days of Jungle coming into fashion stateside. I guess before it morphed into "Drum & Bass" and the parties got all scary thugged out. Anyway, it's pretty dope. This dude taught me a lot!
